Tony Black is a bassist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer residing in Waynesville, North Carolina. He’s most recently known as a touring member of The Marshall Tucker Band. Tony started playing bass while in junior high school, when several friends got together to form a punk rock band. He later joined up with Southern California hardcore punk heroes, Stalag 13 and Dr. Know, for regional and national touring. After experimenting with several post punk groups, Tony found himself in San Francisco, playing bass for avant-garde shred guitarist Buckethead and his band, who toured under the wing of several well-known bands such as Primus, Mr. Bungle, and System of a Down.

In order to gain the skills necessary for session work, to become a better sight reader, and explore different styles of music, Tony enrolled in The Los Angeles College of Music. It was during this time in Southern California when Tony was able to perform alongside legendary jazz artists Flora Purim and Airto Moriera.

Tony has been blessed to play with creative musicians of all styles, direct a youth rock band program, teach private bass instruction, and perform with legendary southern rock and soul artists such as the incredible Jimmy Hall (Wet Willie), Chris Hicks (Marshall Tucker), Robert Nix (Atlanta Rhythm Section), Bob Burns, and Artimus Pyle (Lynyrd Skynyrd). In 2018, Tony performed 130 concerts with The Marshall Tucker Band, including supporting Lynyrd Skynyrd on their Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour.

Tony is currently working on a solo instrumental album: Black Arts Ensemble. As a culmination of all of the musical styles that have influenced Tony throughout the years, Black Arts Ensemble is an endeavor featuring an all-star cast of regional musicians. Due to Tony’s busy touring schedule, progress on the project has been delayed.

The full-length Black Arts Ensemble instrumental album is due to be released in 2020.
