THE MUSIC SEASON WILL CONTINUE TO WARM UP IN JUNE WHEN TONY MART PRESENTS CLASSIC ROCK AT DANTE HALL, STOCKTON UNIVERSITY'S FABULOUS PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
WITH THE SUPPORT OF Atlantic County Economic Development, Freeholder Chairman Frank Formica and so many of our friends and Tony Mart aficionados, Tony Mart is furthering efforts to present free and low cost entertainment of the highest caliber this summer with four Thursday night concerts in June and three concerts in September.
DANTE HALL, ATLANTIC CITY: As Maria "Mary Mart" Marotta was born and raised in Ducktown and Antonino "Tony Mart" Marotta went there when he came to America in 1932, the Tony Mart Family is eminently proud and honored, beyond words, to present this affordable series of classic rock and soul and rhythm and blues at the magnificent, classic Dante Hall venue on Mississippi Ave., next to St. Michael's church where they were married in 1936.
On Thursday June 1st the series will begin with one of the most popular and exciting shows of the 2017 summer season, The Jersey Shore Rock Revival with Grammy wining Hall of Fame drummer from Springsteen's original E Street Band, Vini "Mad Dog" Lopez teaming up with his co-founder of "The Shakes", Bobby Campanell and the red hot Billy Walton Band.
On Thursday the 8th we will present the man who produced and played with Bob Marley on Rolling Stone Magazines 1976 Album of the Year, "Legends", Donald Kinsey, who is all over the Bob Marley movie now available On Demand. This legendary music figure will bring his searing hot Chicago blues rock and Caribbean ensemble, The Kinsey Report, to a rare intimate show in a small performing arts center.
On the 15th we will pay tribute to the New Orleans piano greats including Fats Domino, Allen Toussaint, Professor Longhair and Art Neville when Mitch Woods and the Rocket ‘88's perform a classic New Orleans rock and roll show before the finale of the June concerts, "Jersey Gumbo" an allstar showcase starring "Jumpin' Johnny" Sansone, John Fohl from Dr. John's Lower 911 Band and our own Dan Burke Band with South Jersey's violinist extraordinaire, Tamara DeMent.
Tony Mart Presents "Jersey Gumbo" Americana Music Jam starring Jumpin' Johnny Sansone with John Fohl from Dr. John's Lower 911 Band as well as the Allstar Dan Burke Band featuring AC's own Tamara Dement and Tony Mart Allstar, Rich "Megahurtz" Kurtz.

Back to the roots in Ducktown, Let the Good Times Roll!
The Legend of Tony Mart
With the great resurgence of classic rock enjoyed by people of all ages and the recent international media attention to Tony Mart's as a result of Robbie Robertson's autobiography, "Testimony", there is no time better than the present to create the long overdue book, "The Legend of Tony Mart".
We invite everyone to join us live every Saturday at high noon to share in the stories and reminiscences; your stories and photographs can be sent via email to TonyMarto@aol.com. We'll consider all admissions and include many quotes and interviews from Tony Mart aficionados around the world in the book that will begin in Naso, Messina, Sicily and follow the legacy of Antonino "Tony Mart" Marotta from there to Somers Point, New Jersey after "discovering America" on Columbus Day, 1932.
