From San Diego...

... to Minnesota

Tony Ortiz has thrilled audiences with his outstanding singing and heartfelt songs.  As lead singer of the Monroes in the 80s, you've heard Tony on the radio singing 'What Do All the People Know' or perhaps seen them touring with Rick Springfield or Toto.  Now in Minnesota and fronting his band, the Guns of Soul, Tony's original songs are a powerhouse of Americana soul.

Tony Ortiz and the Guns of Soul are:

Tony Ortiz: Lead vocals, guitar

Rosa Gaona: Vocals

Mark Medcalf: Drums
