Tone has taken the live blues performance community by storm. He's performing everywhere - he's not hard to find, check the events listings sometime - he's all over it. I've caught quite a few of his shows and I have never been disappointed.
He really enjoys performing, he interacts with his audience, he remembers people's names, and man, can he sing! A very sweet speaking voice and then he gets down and dirty and belts out these songs! His phrasing is so expressive, and his voice is quite an instrument. He's got a good range and he can get so gravelly you can feel it. His voice resonates and you can feel the song through him. Yes, he's THAT good.
His performances are a combination of classic and contemporary blues, including some of his own compositions. Tone genuinely seems to be having a blast up there and his audience shares in the fun.
His website is on his profile - he's a performer in RL and his band is called Tony and the Torpedoes. They're based in the Soutwest USA. He's also got a MySpace page and his CDs are available on CD Baby. He's amazing, go check him out. Request "Frigidaire Woman." You'll be glad you did.

I hit the Komuso Tokugawa concert tonight in the Epsilon sim at LIL Sturgis. The Sim was packed, up to 72 people at one point, all there to see one of the best blues performers in Second Life. Komuso is an Aussie living in Japan, and performs live in SL - traditional blues guitar and harmonica. The guy is just amazing. What a voice - earthy, gritty, and a low growl. And in between songs, that Aussie accent. Swooon!
If you get a chance to catch one of his gigs, do it! You won't regret it!

After seeing Mat's Deep Sea Siren avatar the other day, I decided that I just had to have one. I set off in search of Grendel's Children, which is the name of the shop where he found it, and I have to say, the place is amazing, but also amazingly hard to find! The Deep Sea Siren is only 90L$ if you can believe it. It's by Flea Bussy, and comes in purple, blue, green, yellow, red, pink, orange, and teal, including everything you see here plus an AO. I just love its lithe flexi movements.
The shop itself is lovely, and sells a variety of avatars and accessories, by multiple artists, including the illustrious Psyra Extraordinaire. Many of the avatars are quite affordable by recent SL standards.
The selection is amazing. Do visit.
