Tony “DJ Tony Tone” Simmons
Tony “DJ Tony Tone” Simmons has had many different influences from the music industry. He would spend time watching his cousin “Disco Bee” who was a member of Grand Master Flash & The Furious Five. This allowed him to see music in a different way. Tony enjoyed listening and watching the technique of playing music. As time passed he realized how much he wanted to become a DJ. From Hip Hop to traditional gospel music, DJ Tony Tone plays music with a deep passion. Working as a DJ at New York’s WLIB and WBLS, he continues to be a significant trendsetter on the music scene. Recently, he became the first Christian DJ to have an urban and Christian Hip-hop show on one of New York’s premiere stations, WQHT “Hot” 97FM with Pastor Jamaal Bernard from Christian Cultural Center. The hour long show, Street Glory, airs every Sunday from 7am – 8am.
