Tony Montana started playing drums at the age of 8. He could be seen twice a week lugging around a snare drum case more than half his size with an unmistakeable look of determination in his eyes. Along the way, he picked up piano and guitar. At the age of 15 he took a Music Theory class, and started composing. Tony has been in many bands across a wide range of Rock genres since the age of 14. These days, in addition to Creedence Revived, he runs a recording studio producing many local area bands, called Spiral Groove Studios (myspace.com/SGStour) and has an original two man loop show called the Dub Currents.
