"After releasing his first commercial productions only 3 short years ago, Tom has entered the elite group of producers being acknowledged by the most acclaimed DJ’s and labels in the world. Each new release has consistently found its way to the playlists and charts of the best of the best – the type of recognition that speaks to both the quality and significance of his work."
After listening to Colontonio's "Looking Glass", "Bridge the Gap" and "Inspiration" I know exactly why Armin Van Buuren proclaims Tom as "... the man of the moment." and why John O'Callaghan regards Tom as "... one of the leading new artists in trance."
And why Paul van Dyk and staff has selected Colontonio as one of the featured artists of VANDIT DIGITAL.
Tom's websites are at tomcolontonio.com and myspace.com/djtommyboy.
And here is his discography.

This video compilation includes 3 clips shot during the 10 June 2007 "End the Israeli Occupation of Palestine Rally" on the West Lawn of the US Capitol Grounds in Washington DC.
Though there were many speakers, I was only able to capture Ambassador Ed Peck (Former Chairman, Council for the National Interest Foundation), Andy Shallal of Iraqi Voices for Peace and George Friday (National Co-Chair of United for Peace and Justice).
Since on that particular day I also reported on the 2007 Capital Pride Festival I was not able to document much of the 'End the Israeli Occupation of Palestine' Rally which after assembling at the US Capitol's West Lawn then marched from the US Captiol grounds to the Washington Monument Grounds on the National Mall in WDC.
