Anthony "Tony" Carr

Carr first saw the light of day on December 6, 1943, under the big top, the glitzy showbiz world of circus life where his parents performed as high platform divers with the world-famous Conklin Shows. Tony set himself the task of becoming a musician, practising tenor saxophone for six to eight hours a day. Carr gained a reputation as a leading rhythm and blues musician, working with such notables as Rompin' Ronnie Hawkins (who played at President Bill Clinton's inaugural ball), and Ben E. King (of "Stand by Me" fame), then toured for twenty years with his own band....

Tony provides tenor sax, vocals and percussion with "The RAVE" and gives, not only the fun Rock 'n' Roll excitement to the vintage tunes, but also that smooth laid back jazz sound when the band performs some of the Oldie Goodies.
