Tony Saunders Band Feat: Vernon Black
Tony and Vernon have finally teamed up to make a team that is worth talking about. Together they lift each other up to new heights. They both have played with enough musical royalty, which they felt this and their friendship should turn into a musical collaboration of fun and great music. Vernon, for the past 10 years, has been the musical director for Booker T Jones. Prior to that, he has played with Maze, Mariah Carey and his favorite gig ever was with the musical legend Herbie Hancock.
Tony comes from music royalty growing up with his famous Dad, Merl Saunders. Tony had piano lessons from Herbie Hancock when he was very young and Sly Stone gave him an organ at age 10. Not many people may say their first gig was with Jerry Garcia/Merl Saunders band at age 17. Tony has played with Dr. John, Les McCann, Chaka Kahn, Stevie Wonder, Steve Cropper, David Crosby, Eric Clapton and George Howard. The last few years he has played with Paul Jackson Jr., Jessie J, Nils and Gail Jhonson. Tony’s last CD “Uptown Jazz”, stayed on the Smooth Jazz charts for 2 years, and he is currently working on a new CD titled “Sexy Somethin”.
