I’m not gonna beat around the bush… I’m in a contest, and if i win, I will be invited to play at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Concert at Madison Square Garden!!!
Whether you know this or not… Playing “The Garden” is my life’s ultimate goal… If WE can pull this off, I die a happy man.
There is no way I can do this myself!!!
It’s very easy…
Just go to this site, and vote for me under “Support this artist”. You may vote once a day.
That’s it. It takes but a minute, and you would be doing me the greatest service ever!!! “Like”-ing my FB fan page, listening to my songs/watching my videos on the contest website also helps my chances!!! You can also help by spreading the word!!! Posting the website link on your Facebook, Twitter pages, blogs, etc. Any, and all help is greatly appreciated!!!

It’s that time of year again, and below is my top 80 albums of 2010.
As with previous years, let me make the following comments before you see my list:
The Model Citizen L.P.
Reviewed by Jim Testa
New Brunswick/Asbury Park singer/songwriter and frequent sideman Tommy Strazza starts his new album off with an old-timey novelty song and ends it with a classic rock ballad that sounds like it’s being sung in an arena in front of 50,000 cigarette lighters held aloft and waving in time to the track’s anthemic whoa-oh-oh chorus.

Tommy Strazza combines melodic pop sensibilities with genuine guitar-oriented rock and roll. It’s kind of like having your cake and eating it, too. Strazzas newest disk titled, The Model Citizen LP shows a matured writer that leaves no influential stone unturned in his enthusiastic quest for fresh, stand apart from the crowd, sounds.
TOMMY STRAZZA – The Model Citizen LP (Red 5 Records)
Listening to Tommy Strazza is like listening to a history lesson of rock &roll. It kinda sounds like what rock music would have been if the money grubbing corporations hadn’t gotten their hands all over it. No, this ain’t indie or alternative or anything like that. It’s plain old rock &roll. The album starts out with “You’re Not the Only Show,” a real swingin’ tune that sounds like it could have come out an early rock band from the 50s in the south, with a real rockabilly flare. “SensoryOverload” is more modern, sounding sort of like an 80s Elvis Costello pop tune up…
