Tony Coleman has traveled around the world, performing with some of the most iconic R&B and blues musicians ever. Throughout his career, Coleman’s drumming has provided a solid foundation for such artists as B.B. King, Otis Clay, Bobby Blue Bland, Johnnie Taylor, Albert King, Albert Collins, Etta James, James Cotton, Katie Webster, Z.Z. Hill, O.V. Wright and Buddy Guy, among others.
In addition to his main gig touring with B.B. King, he is an acclaimed songwriter-composer. He has written jingles for Northwest Airlines and Calloway Golf Company; he’s also featured in a television commercial for Calloway Golf introducing the Odyssey White Hot Putter. But Tony is most at home when he is behind a drum set playing the blues.
