The Bon Jovi Experience on Saturday 17th July 2021
The Founder Member of The BJE, Tony has studied various styles over the course of his singing career. He started singing at the age of 6 after being chosen for the school choir in the infants and received vocal tuition from the music teacher who showed him how to use his voice correctly and also taught him how to play the guitar. Through his school life he performed in many productions hosted by the school and also performed in countless local bands from an early age. In the 80’s and 90’s, Tony was the vocalist with Scratch and Big Shot from Birmingham who had plenty of media coverage at the time.
For 3 years, starting in 1990, he attended private tuition in Worcester from some of the best vocal coaches in the country, some of who work with singers in the West End and are used for tuition in the music industry. In 1995, after Johnny (Tico) met Tony while Johnny was standing in for a friend in a local band, Tony was invited up on stage to sing. After the show Johnny asked him to join By Jovi. Tony fronted By Jovi from 1995 until July 2004, performing for millions of people all over the world.
After Tonys departure from By Jovi in 2004, Tony formed the band known today as the Worlds leading tribute to BON JOVI…… THE BON JOVI EXPERIENCE.
Edd has been a huge Bon Jovi fan since way back in the early 80s, Just around that time and after watching Richie, plus Richie’s hero Eric Clapton live, it gave Edd the inspiration to take up playing guitar. Not having the luxury of attending a guitar school, Edd is 100% self taught which has often surprised and impressed many of his peers not one to keep his guitar skills to himself he can be regularly be seen chatting and giving technical advice to would be Richie’s at shows.
Realising that perfecting the Richie guitar is only part of the role, Edd has spent extensive time perfecting his now great backing vocals to give that ‘extra edge’ to the band and can, on occasion, be see at shows performing main vocals on the song ILL BE THERE FOR YOU as the real Richie also does.
“The only thing better than performing Bon Jovi songs is seeing BJE fans thoroughly enjoying themselves at our shows, I feel privileged to be part of THE BON JOVI EXPERIENCE”– Edd
