Tony Poole


Tony Poole lives and breathes music!

He began to perform at the tender age of 4 with a natural feel for rhythm and started playing drums at age 12 and moving on in his teens to bass and guitar. He then followed this with an Associate’s Degree in Music. Tony has now been writing, singing and performing songs for over 30 years. His songs range from witty social commentary and funky jams to soulful ballads and rock n’ roll proclamations!

With over 160 original tunes and 1800 covers, Tony can play all night – for a week – and never play the same song twice. His reservoir of covers includes rockabilly, country, rock, bluegrass, boogie, blues, outlaw country and other forms of roots music. One of Tony’s most striking characteristic is his voice. His range is astounding, dipping low into a gravelly bass then shooting up into his powerful tenor. Tony has such volume that he can play to a large audience completely unamplified. He is comfortable playing to an audience of 4 to 40,000, from ages 8 to 80, from bikers to the Junior League, adjusting his repertoire accordingly. Tony’s shows are emotionally charged with an unusually high level of energy. He has a large and loyal following, and plays to capacity crowds regularly. He has a contagious humor and demands audience participation. As an entertainer, Tony Poole is unmatched.

Tony Poole has shared the stage with many world-class talents such as Snake Oil Medicine Show, Larry Keel & Natural Bridge, The David Nelson Band, Buzz Kiefer,
Too Tall Tom, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, Deep Blue, LazyBirds, Acoustic Syndicate, Jaimee Tomas, Ralph Roddenbery, Travis Proctor and Michael Tolcher, just to name a few.

Tony has performed at numerous festivals such as Earthfest, Harvest Fests, Black Mountain Music Festival, and Boone’s Woolly Worm Festival, Blueberry Fest and appeared at countless clubs, bars and other venues throughout the Eastern United States. He has also appeared on Good Morning America.

Having focused on Western North Carolina and the Atlanta region for many years, Tony’s touring schedule now covers the Northeast throughout the Deep South.
