Bonny Records [Tonica]

Bonny was the house label for Tonica Sound Studio which was owned and operated by Tony Angello and family in the garage of their home in Tonica, Illinois from 1971 to 1985.  Prior to being studio owners both Tony and his wife Sharon Angello were musicians that performed and recorded as Angelo's Angels.  The early recordings at T.S.S. were engineered by Tony.  Later on, recording duties were primarily done by his son, Bob Angello, a talented musician in his own right.  Sometime around 1985 Bob moved the studio to Nashville.
