International touring and recording artist, Tony Glaser, is a funky bass playing, high-energy frontman with an impressive knack for getting the audience to do his bidding. Fortunately, his bidding is dancing, smiling, feeling the moment, singing, rocking out, and sharing a unique experience together. It is hard to stand still at his shows, since they are funky dance parties that totally rock, and rest assured he'll find a way to engage each and every person in the crowd.
Based out of San Francisco, CA, he has played all over the world. Some highlights include performing for the troops in Iraq, playing for orphans in Bali, getting funky in Tokyo clubs, guerrilla playing the Super Bowl and U.S. Capitol, rocking the upright bass with G.Love, and his band opening up for the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, Cheap Trick.
He is currently touring with his band, Tony Glaser And The Party.
The Tony Glaser Band treated us to the kind of performance on Thursday, September 28, 2017 which reminds you that music is one of the most therapeutic forces on the planet. In addition to being a devastating bassist, one of a kind singer and captivating showman, Tony is a brilliant songwriter. His compositions are richly layered, fluid and lyrically poignant. You wouldn't call this a jamband but they definitely are not afraid to dive into the great unknown. Guitar guru Ben Misterka gave us a taste of his genius which emerges from a cornucopia of bliss every moment he's on stage. His interplay on this night with Derek Brooker was something truly special. They will leave you wanting more just as last night's show did on the whole.

I got to tell you, you sounded great, really great. Different you know, but appealing to I think masses. You don't see guys like you guys around, you know? You got good songs, good melodies, and that's cool.
