Turn your speakers up LOUDER! DJ Tony Tone is on! Tony Simmons, very well known as DJ Tony Tone - The Blessed Kept Secret, is a National Disc Jockey and Radio Personality. This South Bronx native is the older of two children born to Carolyn & Willie Simmons.
From early childhood, Tony loved music and often found himself listening and dancing to the sounds of such R&B greats as Michael Jackson, The OJays and Prince. This contributed to his decision to become a DJ. While he loved playing music, and enjoyed the response the crowd would give, he often felt like something was missing. As time passed, he began to feel empty inside, even while watching others enjoy him. It was then that he heard God speak to him saying, “There is nothing wrong with playing music. You do not have to stop. However, now you will play for Me." Not fully understanding this experience with God, Tony still obeyed, and began a new chapter in his life and a transformation commenced.
Now with Christ Jesus as his CEO, DJ Tony Tone works with a mission. In addition, from Hip Hop to Traditional, people of all ages appreciate his style in which he delivers the Good News and love of Jesus Christ. Through his obedience, he continues to flourish. He has opened for such Gospel and Secular artists as Mary Mary, Fred Hammond, Israel Houghton, Hezekiah Walker, Jeff Redd, DJ Marley Marl to name a few, and was the DJ for the 5-Borough Celebrity Basketball Tour of NY Knicks Asst. GM, Allan Houston. In December, 2014, he was invited to join DJ Enuff’ Heavy Hitters, a crew with a mission to unite Disc Jockeys across the country and abroad, and spread the versatility of music. In February 2016, DJ Tony Tone made history as the very first Gospel DJ to host a show on Hot 97, New York’s top Hip Hop and Urban Contemporary Radio station. Along with Pastor Jamal Bernard, of Christian Cultural Center, Tony hosts Street Glory, a one-hour show featuring the hottest Gospel music and Christian Hip Hop artists.With a generation of people searching for God, Tony hopes to touch and reach them through the music.
