As we slide from summer production to contemplation of finishing the outline for the book “The Legend Of Tony Mart”, it’s a great time for everyone to share more stories and provide information so we can contact you to do interviews or just chat or ask questions.

Of course it’s about the music but it’s also about the personal memories and the feelings of the part of your life that you remember enjoying so much at Tony Mart.

Unbelievably we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the filming of Eddie and the Cruisers and the sale of Tony Mart’s on September 15, 1982.

Remember the legacy lives on in productions, events, and the book so don’t hesitate to join in and be part of it. We look forward to hearing from you.
