You're big - you bad - you brag - you boast—
but tonight we get-in' that azz—
Cuz it's the Tony Tarasco Roast!!
So began the first annual Tony Tarasco Roast.
Who is Tony Tarasco and why would he be roasted?
On the eve of his 40th birthday, Tony was roundly insulted and goofed-on by friends and family in attendance. Roastmaster Brew (aka Anthony Brewster) kept the insults flowing and the barbs flying before leading his group House Of Vibe All-Stars through a set of wicked funk with some soul and reggae thrown in there.
House Of Vibe has a new CD out.
House Of Vibe play every Wednesday night at Harvelle's.
Tony Tarasco & Anthony Brewster
Bassist Colin WolfeTony's choice of attire for the evening's events was this pimped out Hugh Hefner smoking robe and an emperor's crown. Look like he just tasted some Parkay or sumthin'.
These are the shoes Tarasco chose to wear.
Did he have these in his closet?

Tony endured the roast for close to an hour but his mic was unexpectedly cut off when he tried to have the last word. Apologies to the roasters whose names i was not able to get at the time of this posting.
