Tony Pulizzi

Hardworking guitarist/vocalist Tony Pulizzi enjoys a music career filled with versatility and experience. Within a year after relocating to Los Angeles, Tony quickly made his impact on the west coast and became the house guitarist on American Idol. He parlayed that gig into numerous appearances on The Voice, BET Awards and other TV network award shows, as well as contributing his guitar magic on various movie soundtracks.

From working with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Tito Jackson, Steven Tyler, Smokey Robinson, Natalie Cole, Dave Koz, Dionne Warwick, George Benson, and Snoop Dogg to name a few, Tony loves to mash musical genres into many different exciting live performances.

As a bandleader, Tony has released 3 albums of his own. Tony is also set to release many new original projects in the future, including new studio material and a live album release, culminating his current material and past works from subsequent albums… Don't miss out!

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
