The group has performed at some of NYC’s hottest venues including Joe’s Pub, 54 Below, Mercury Lounge, Ars Nova, The Bitter End, and Rockwood Music Hall to name a few. Alongside his bandmates, The Lobbyists were nominated for a 2016 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Music in a Musical, SeaWife. SeaWife was developed in collaboration with Seth Moore, Liz Carlson, and had its world premiere Off-Broadway with Naked Angels in partnership with the South St. Seaport Museum, in the summer of 2015.

In addition to being a performer, Tony is also a web designer. He founded his web design company TiVo Designs in 2016 and specializes in portfolios for artists and websites for small businesses and organizations.
After spending over 8 years as a professional actor, Tony noticed a lack of technology geared towards helping actors navigate show business. In February of 2019, Tony and his business partner Ned Donovan officially launched a new tech start-up company called Audition.Cat, a collection of career management tools for the auditioning actor. The company plans to release its beta at the end of 2019.
