The Tony Patler Band
Wednesday, October 30, 2019
Patler began touring and recording with Chaka Khan, eventually becoming her music director (where he and Dave Mason Band drummer Alvino Bennett first played together). From this, he went on to record and tour with many well known artists including: Michael Jackson, Patti Labelle, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson, Janet Jackson, George Michael, Michael McDonald, Was Not Was, ABC, Solomon Burke, Rick Astley, and Paul Young. Patler’s credits also include film soundtracks and co-writing songs for Janet Jackson, Chaka Khan & L.T.D., among others.
To Patler’s delight, a recommendation by long-time friend Alvino Bennett, led to him joining the Dave Mason Band in May, 2009. Big Rock is honored to have Tony play on our stage in between tours with Mason. This will be a great night of music.
