Toney is currently promoting his upcoming release, Toney Rocks: The Self Titled EP. According to his website, Toney "dives into the abyss of progressive, blues rock music, pushing the culture forward by delivering a bold hybrid of blues, and rock music peppered with electronic elements. He isn't just another guitar slinging bluesman. Toney Rocks conscious penmanship reveals a poet that identifies with todays struggles and triumphs such as poverty, love, and self-liberation."  

Hope you will join us for this special live session when Toney Rocks visits Hunter At Sunrise.  For more about Toney Rocks, click HERE.
