The Tony Boffa Jazz Quartet
Tony Boffa graduated from Cheverus High School in 1968. He somehow knew at age 15 that music would be his life. While learning the pop tunes of the times, he was also intrigued by the improvisational styles of the great be-bop players. Music in various styles was the only thing that motivated him. His natural urge to entertain led to the development of his unique musical personality. Under the tutelage of local educators Don Doane and Thomas Bucci, Tony graduated from Berklee College of Music in 1973. Tony earned his way through college, teaching privately, instructing at Bowdoin College,and playing extensively as a sideman in show and jazz bands. Frustrated with the leadership skills of many of his employers Tony began leading his own ensembles. Tony credits Don Doane, Tom Bucci, and Commercial band leaders Larry Bisso(Massachusetts) and Arnold Most (New Haven Connecticut) with helping him combine schooled musicianship with entertainment skills.
As Tony winds down his career fronting The Tony Boffa nine piece show/dance band, he returns to his roots. Come and see The Tony Boffa Jazz Quartet Saturday nights at JD’s Bistro. Jazz means many different things to many different people. The repertoire for Tony’s jazz performances is familiar and fun. It features the Great American song book and creative renditions of pop tunes.
