About Tony Pollon
Tony was 11 years old when he first played in front of a crowd . It was an amature contest & he took first prisze along with his father accompanying him. He played the lap steel with his father playing accoustic rythym guitar. Later in his teen days ,he formed a group along with his good friend Fred Turner They played in teen clubs for a couple years then went different directions
Tony went on to play with a group Terry & The Gentry & Turner later on joined in the group of The original B.T. O.
A few years later Tony made the move from Winnipeg Man. to Vancouver ,B.C. & started into playing country music & before too long was on the road playing all over B.C, Yukon Territories, Alberta ,Alaska, Charlotte Islands, & some other parts of The U.S.A.. It was a great experiance seeing all these places & also making money doing it. It was the late 70's when tony changed playing with bands & went on playing as a single act.Tony got more well kown seeing his name in lights & on billboards& soon had more work then he could handle. He decided to do some recording of his own songs & wound up selling them at his gigs. This got him into dong a few locally televised shows & was getting more in demand as time went on &.
