Tony Marts Hard Rock March 27

Hey, it looks like Carmen and Nancy are going to have regular shows at the Hard Rock, maybe all summer, which sounds good to me.

After having one or two Tony Mart Reunions a year for the past few years, they've already had two this year and have another one coming up on Friday, March 27, featuring The Billy Walton Band, and that's not the basketball player.

That's Billy the guitarist from Asbury Park who has captured the heart of the South Jersey music scene, at least in Somers Point, where he's played the bars, Friday night beach concerts and Good Old Days Picnic, as well as previous Tony Mart Reunions.

Billy Walton's the best, well, maybe second best after the other Billy, Billy Hector, who has yet to really get the attention of those south of Tuckerton, but he will.

Now I don't think it's Billy Walton getting the Tony Marts Lifetime Achievement Award since he's not old enough, and never played there, but I will find out whose in this year's nominations and get back to you on it.

Also want to hear from somebody who caught Dr. Bobby Fingers and Danny Eyer at the Hard Rock last show? Thanks.


Ah, ha!, just as I suspected. There's more to this story still coming over the wires. Here's more details from Nancy.


Tony Mart’s will present another series of “Tony Mart Lifetime Achievement Awards” at their “Let the Good Times Roll for the Right Reasons” celebration at the Hard Rock Cafe on Friday, March 27th at 8PM.

Before the phenomenal Jersey Boy Rockers, The Billy Walton Band performs, awards will be presented to Joseph Fiore, Manager of Tony Mart’s in the early ‘70’s, Roger Evoy, 40 year Tony Mart Aficionado and contributing photographer; Steve Wright, a loyal, veteran bartender of the late 70’s and 80’s; and last, but not least, Jimmy Walker, the lovable Shakespearean character who served nobly as custodian during the final years of Tony Mart’s.

Please honor these recipients and support this charitable event. All proceeds from the minimal admission charge of $5 and the sale of Tony Mart t-shirts and “Hard Rock March on Stage” Pins will benefit a great cause, the Hard Rock’s “Musicians on Call” organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities.

Help us honor people who made the legacy of Tony Mart’s great while we “Let the Good Times Roll for the Right Reasons!”

More to come on this one.
