We are SO EXCITED! We hope he can coax Georgia to fiddle with them a bit as well! If you are a music junkie- this is your night!!! With roots in soul, R&B, and funk meshed with southern grit, their music spans a wide gauntlet of sonic influence that gives them their signature roots rock sound. A little Bio on Tony: Growing up the eighth of ten children with a operatically trained mother and a jazz trumpet player for a father Tony Cuchetti was exposed to a wide spectrum of music and learned from an early age what he wanted to do and just how to channel it. He toured with his family for many years performing in malls, at state fairs, convention centers, etc. Through all of these experiences and vast array of musical influences, Tony Cuchetti’s unique sound and style would emerge. He has shared the stage with the likes of Marshall Tucker, Little River Band, The B52’s, and Donna the Buffalo.

  1. Hi TJ! So sorry we did not reply sooner. We did not see your post. The Taste of Musky is not longer happening. We cancelled that a number of years ago. We do, however, have a fish fry tasting happening on Saturday that weekend from 3pm to 5pm, downtown.
