Tony Peebles

TONY PEEBLES was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, then moved to Philadelphia, where he has spent eight years studying music theory at the University of Pennsylvania (B.A.), and jazz saxophone at The University of the Arts (MM degree). He has studied saxophone with Chris Farr, Ron Kerber, and Ben Schachter. In 2000, he toured Europe with the Hamilton All-Star Jazz Band, including stops at the Juan-les-Pins and Montreux jazz festivals. Since then, Tony Peebles has played and recorded with a variety of fine original groups including jazz fusion bands Big Breakfast, The Half Of It, MusiQology, and The Abstract Truth. Tony has performed alongside such artists as Geri Allen, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Oliver Lake, and Andy Bey. He currently has two albums on sale that feature his original compositions, “Drop” and “The Half Of It”, both recorded with his jazz fusion quartet, The Half Of It. In early summer 2008, Tony moved to San Francisco, where he currently lives, teaches and performs with Ryze the Band and his own jazz group, the Strong Move Quartet.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
