MEET THE STAFF




MICHAEL GEORGE
Vice President | Piano Department

I began my career at Tony's shortly after my dad opened the store (1975) on a part time basis during my education. As my dad had stepped down in the late nineties, I had taken over management position. I also specialize in the Piano and Keyboard departments. Like my dad, I also love going to work, dealing with the public and suppliers alike. I thrive on running an honest business and seeing the lives of many from all ages being enriched because they are involved in music.

My music experiences consist of performing in a pop band in the late eighties, then formed my own jazz band in the mid nineties and since the late nineties to the present, I have been playing contemporary Christian music with my local church worship band. I have also practiced casual song writing.

HAL PENNELL
Rental & String Department Manager

I began my employment at Tony's in 1989. I manage our Rental and String departments. It is also my pleasure to assist our customers in the area of acoustic and electric guitars and bass guitars, musical accessories, and in the preparation of quotations for instruments and sound systems.

I came to Fredericton from Cape Breton (Glace Bay) in the fall of 1966 and worked in the retail and insurance industries before arriving at Tony's. Since high school days I have played in various bands in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and enjoy being able to help others with the tools they need to accomplish what they want to musically. As a musician, my main instruments are bass guitar and guitar, but like most people, I love to hear a good performance on anything. I have been a customer of Tony's from the beginning and am proud to be a member of the team as well.

DAVE PALMER
Repair Technician

I have been Tony's Repair Technician since December 2003. I have been playing guitar since the mid sixties, and pedal steel guitar and dobro since 1976. I have toured every province in Canada, several States in the US, and in 1984 completed a tour of the UK. I retired from music as a full time occupation in 1984, and opened Palmer Precision Gunsmithing in Fredericton in 1985, eventually doing all facets of gunsmithing and rifle making. 


Many of the skills I learned as a gunsmith have been invaluable in the work I do at Tony's. I derive great satisfaction from doing the finest work I am capable of on the instruments and amps entrusted to my care, in the hope that my work will further the customers enjoyment of their instruments. Tony's is also a warranty repair station for Fender Musical Instrument Corporation for instruments and amps, and is frequently entrusted with warranty repairs on other brands including Taylor Guitars.

I still perform live with several bands (Flat Top, Sleepy Driver, Matchstick Mike) and participate in recording sessions at several studios.
