Primary Instrument: Vocalist
The O-Tones is a hot Swing, R&B, and Motown band from Western Massachusetts. With three singers as the core of the band, The O-Tones will melt your hearts with their powerful three-part harmonies. Whether they're singing their rendition of a 1940's swing tune, or belting out a more contemporary R&B number, Ann Percival, Zack Danziger, and Mary Witt make each song they sing a hit. In addition to blending their tones as harmony singers, they are each extremely compelling solo singers. From sentimental ballads to upbeat soul and blues, they will charm you and make you want to jump and jive on the dance floor. Ann, Mary, and Zack also form part of the driving rhythm section of The O-Tones, lending their talents on rhythm guitar, bass, and lead guitar respectively. Walt Chapman, king of Boogie Woogie piano style and organ riffs, rocks the group along. Along with Pieter Struyk on the drums, the pulse of this band is fiery for dancing or listening....
Awards:The O-Tones named "best swing band in the valley” (Pioneer Valley of MA) numerous times, voted by listeners in the Valley Advocate¹s Grand Band Slam.
Great music like The O-Tones’ repertoire is timeless. The trio of vocalists have their own style, blending their voices in original ways to fit each song. Each singer is versatile at leads as well as great at harmonizing. ...cool organ and piano excursions as well as soulful sax stylings over a solid rhythm foundation. -Paul Burton, Music Revue
