Tony Mecca

Infectious, insightful & often very funny
musical commentary on "the human drill"
that'll be a little different than what you
normally put into your ears.

We play ...
Adventurous Singer/Songwriter Rock Music

We sound like...
A tag team match pitting Tom Waits & Frank Zappa
vs Bruce Springsteen & John Prine

"What keeps me coming back to see Tony Mecca live is his songs. Tony is a solid songwriter with catchy melodies, thoughtful lyrics, and music that transports you to another place."
Cyndy Drue - Radio Personality/Event Reporter - Classic Rock WMGK (102.9 FM)

Help Our Friends …
... Rick Terway & Billy S

"I've had the pleasure of playing with Rick Terway in HABITS and MECCA from 1978-1989. And with Billy S more recently in THE HEAVY MENTAL GYPSYS. Unfortunately, both have encountered recent health issues that have produced some heavy medical bills.

My wife Sheryl (better known as Annie Helicopter) and I have decided that all of the profits from our two new CDs should be donated to these two wonderful friends and gentlemen to help them offset some of their financial burden.

So click below and check out the newly released, remixed/remastered editions of PURPLE MONKEYS & PRINCES OF THE NEW DARK AGE. And know that the profits will be donated to help our good friends. Thanks, Tony Mecca"
