THE TURNSTILES BAND IS....
TONY MONACO- Piano, Lead vocals
Tony was born into a musical family and began his musical journey at the age of 8. While he was fascinated with the piano, the guitar was a more realistic financial option. As a result, Tony studied guitar with his Father, Pat Monaco, and played it as his main instrument until the age of 13, winning both regional and national guitar competitions.
Over the years, his love for keyboards was rekindled when he fell in love with the Hammond organ which eventually led him back to his first love, the piano. He studied piano with many private teachers but credits Dave Frank (world renowned jazz pianist) for really focusing his efforts. As a result, many of his influences were jazz artists. However, when a close friend suggested he listen to more artists like Billy Joel, he reluctantly did so and to his surprise, he became enamored with the genius of Billy Joel. Billy’s piano style was one that Tony not only found inspiring, but also easier to relate what he learned from emulating Billy’s licks and listening to his lyrics to his efforts as an aspiring singer-songwriter with his own band, Thrills (As a member of Thrills, Tony did extensive recording and touring, opening for bands such as Foreigner, Quarterflash, Nick Lowe, Juice Newton, and Orleans). In the years following, Tony played with many of Long Island’s top bands and then in 1993, he formed what he believes was one of the first tributes to the piano man, “Stormfront”, which earned him an audition for the traveling production of the Broadway show, “Movin’ Out”.
Now residing in South Florida, Tony has decided to once again pay tribute to the music and man that has been such an influence in his musical life. In addition, with the formation of “Turnstiles”, he has been reunited with his life long friend and former band mate from Thrills, Dave Fullerton. Dave along with both new and old friends has now joined forces with Tony to bring this band to life for all Billy Joel fans to enjoy!
In June 1999, drummer Steve Kilroy first started working with guitarist Dave Eve in London with 'Gods Little Joke' when he engineered tracks for the 2003 'Revolver Records' release 'A moment of Clarity' at Scream Studios in London. Dave co-wrote some of the songs as well as toured with the band and since then, the two have been working together on various projects, producing,writing and touring. Their combined credits are too extensive to list but both have been in signed bands (Steve in Tantric recent 08 tour) and Dave's resume as producer/engineer is endless and features bands like 'The Noisettes', 'Earodynamics' and Jules Hodgson of KMFDM. Dave also teaches music theory, does transcriptions and has written music for movies, television, and video game soundtracks. The two went on to join 'Australian Nirvana' and after nearly three years of touring they formed 'The Perfect Tool'.
Obviously, finding a singer for any band is vital for the band's success, so we set out to find the 'hands down, OMF'nG, WTF! ' guy, and we found him. His name is Mike Rock and rather than attempting to describe what freaked us out when we first saw him,. look at the videos and pics on this page and the feedback from all the new youtube vids and you'll see for yourself, we really did get the perfect man for the job.
Remi Signorino was seemingly sent from above as when we were on the hunt for a bassist, Steve stumbled upon his youtube channel where he posted most of the Tool bass parts to our existing set,. Even though he is a young guy, his talent and cool demeanor allowed us to set out for tour with just one rehearsal and he was awesome!
When you come to see 'The Perfect Tool' you will be transported to a place coveted by hardcore Tool fans! The set list will feature songs from albums past and present, delivered in a powerful, awe inspiring way! In addition, 'TpT' has been stunning audiences in Europe and the States with eye-popping production including some amazing video projections.
