5 YEAR ROAD :
The FL/NY Connection was created when Kristina Webb , Dangerous Dan Toler and Tony Perrino were at Dan's recording studio in 2008 . Kristina had written the song "Meant To Be " and got Dan & Tony to help her out with the tune . Danny and Tony knew the quality of the song and agreed . Kristina gave them both a third of the copyright . When the song was finished , ready for BMI publishing and US Copyright, the three decided to call their writing FL/NY Connection with Kristina & Dan being from Fl and Tony NY ! It was a connection too , because right today , Kristina and Tony have written so many tunes together that this is just what's conspired in 5 years .
Each player had their own band/s and Kristina was playing with Bill Dinneen in a group called "Sweet Tea Band" w/ David Church on drums . Kristina & Bill were writing a lot of tunes together within this 5 years , recording them, shipping them to NY for Tony to finish using his band members like Joe Mele ( guitar/slide) / Jared Alpern ( 14 yr old guitar wiz / B3 & keyboards) / Emma Tornacello ( guitar , keyboards , fiddle, backup vocals) / Tommy Murphy ( Mandolin ) and many more . Kristina was getting old friends from Nashville to send in their sessions to Tony , like the late great Tom Roady ( session player , Vince Gill Band ) , Jim "Turbo " Kirby ( Roy Orbison keyboardist ) , Bucky Barrette ( bass, but played lead with Roy Orbison and won national guitarist ) , Steve Thomas ( fiddle Barbra Mandrel ) , Randy Sorrells ( pedal steel w/ Hank , Jr) and many more . What wasn't being recorded in Fl or NY was being recorded at Studio B in Nashville,TN with Carroll Miller .
5 years to put this together and it's been a hard and sad but great 5 years . Bill Dinneen passed away with cancer, Dangerous Dan Toler passed away with ALS this year and Tom Roady passed away from a heart attack just a day before the Vince Gill tour started . But these three men will always be a part of the music Kristina & Tony write ! They will always be remembered and love by all that knew them and thru the 5 Year Road CD , their music lives forever !
This CD is dedicated to William"Bill aka Bass Man" Dinneen, Dangerous Dan Toler , Tom Roady and to God above for letting these three men find there way into this music ! Many Thanks for all our friends and supporters and may God bless everyone and our USA !
