Written in a plain-spoken style that mirrors his own down to earth personality, Tony Marsico‘s book Late Nights with Bob Dylan takes you on a journey from the mean streets of Philadelphia, where he got his start playing in cover bands, to the main stage of David Letterman’s late night variety show, where Marsico and his friends found themselves backing Bob Dylan in a one-off performance that Dylan fans are still talking about today. If you’ve ever dreamt of a successful career in the music business, Marsico’s book will give you hope that anything’s possible as long as you work hard and enjoy yourself as much as possible along the way. Tony Marsico has been involved in making music for over 30 years.
Marsico’s bands The Plugz and Cruzados were staples of the California music scene throughout the late 70’s and early 80’s. The bands’ wide-open, desert sound was a hybrid of Tex Mex and rock and roll that helped set the tone for the L.A . scene that consisting of X, The Blasters, Los Lobos, Dwight Yoakum and more. Marsico would go on to record as a session bassist with Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Roger Daltrey, Marianne Faithful, Dr. John, Matthew Sweet, and of course, Bob Dylan among others. Tony’s lounge band, The Martini Kings, have a large and faithful following throughout the southwest.
It was on a session for songwriter Gerry Goffin where Marsico would first run into Darran “Dewey” Falcone who had been putting down some vocals and harmonica on the tracks. The two struck up a friendship and started writing songs together. Marsico got called on the road for the next ten years with Matthew Sweet and Dewey pulled up stakes in Los Angeles for a simpler life. In April of 2014 Marsico started thinking about his friend Dewey and after a long search tracked his pal down who had settled into Joshua Tree, California ten years prior. Dewey had built his house and took up racing motorcycles full time. Now Cicsco & Dewey have been reunited, and will perform a live set at this book reading and signing event.
