Anthony (Tony) Tucker

Tony Tucker is a percussionist from St.John's who started playing the drum kit at the young age of 10. Throughout his teens he recorded and toured with various bands ranging from rock, traditional, and folk, including East Coast Music Association (ECMA) nominees The Danette Eddy Band and Potbelly.

 

In the mid 90s, Tony began studying world percussion. His primary focus is on the traditional rules of Flamenco, West African, Middle-Eastern, and Latin percussion.

 

In 1997 Tony joined the group El Viento Flamenco wherein he has perfected the complex hand clapping so integral to the art of flamenco and has added cajon, bongos, darbuka, and udo to the group's sound. El Viento has released three CDs, one of which won an ECMA award for "Roots/Traditional Recording of the Year" (2007). El Viento Flamenco has played with the Nova Scotia, Quebec, Thunder Bay, Edmonton, and Victoria symphonies, as well as appearing at the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival, Atlantic Festival of Lights, Prince Edward Island (PEI) Folk and Jazz Festival, The Atlantic Film Festival, and the prestigious Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival.

 

Tony has been professionally teaching percussion for 15 years and is currently teaching at Long & McQuade, St. John's.
