Danke an all die Leute, die mir zugehört haben, unterstützt und mit Komplimenten und Lächeln gelächelt haben. Ein letzter Abschied von den Mitarbeitern des "Paul Fish" Restaurants für Biere und Sandwiches.

my memory


19 - September - Timmendorfer Strand - Germany

a nice place, with a refreshing park near the sea.
while I was playing finally I was in the shadow.
then I moved to a little "square" with a little statue and 2 benches and there I played until the sunset.
cool vibes.
 
18 - September - Scharbeutz - Germany

a nice village on the Baltic sea, I just played a couple of hours in the main square.
at the sunset is the best time.
after the last song, I turned and I saw this incredibly beautiful colors

23 - August - Toronto - Canada

I played @ TTC Underground Sounds Top 10 Live Event at the Vaughn Metropolitan Centre Station
I didn't win the contract with Universal Music Canada.. and sincerely better this way.
I was not so keen on giving up the rights of one of my songs, without a real project behind it.
it was nice to be part of that anyway.
thanks to my friend Oz to have been part of this with me and to have taken real cool pictures. 
very cool jogging at the sunset along the lake shore.. 

22 - August - Toronto - Canada

around from 6 am with my bike.. picked up the costume (thanks to Thunder Thighs Costumes LTD), cut my hair (Hair Market Salon - with Azmara & Chris), rehearsed in the subway. 
let's see what it will be tomorrow.. @ TTC Underground Sounds Top 10 Live Event


19 - August - Ratzeburg - Germany

a guy, with a smile, brought me an ice cream (Banana Split) while I was playing..
cool music Sunday afternoon in Ratzeburg, in the park behind Eis Pavillon Pelz.


17 - August - Lubeck - Travemunde - Germany

nice to meet Alex @ Funambules, Lubeck, cool place, and lovely to play near the pedestrian bridge nearby Trave river on the promenade.. but after 1 hour the Police told the same old thing.. "the speaker is not allowed".. and so goodbye Lubeck... 
I went to Travemunde to my favorite spot and played until the sunset.. very kind people there.


16 - August - Schwerin - Germany

pleasant to visit Schwerin, a beautiful city.
even if after 4 songs the Police told me that the speaker was not allowed.
I tried without the speaker at the entry of a mall, still on the main square.. but even there I couldn't stay.. it was a private area.
so, at one point, nice city & people, but unfortunately, goodbye.


13 - August - Seedorf - Germany

facing always unexpected problems with our old camper, Gin Lemon...
this time the boiler was broken..this means interruption of the tour "2 & Half".
lost all day among Travemunde, Lubeck, Ratzeburg, Hamburg, Schwerin.
in the end, we had to come back home.
a long stressful day. 
 

12 - August - Travemunde - Germany

cool Sunday in Travemunde, playing on the promenade.. first day of the Tour "2 & Half" 


6 - August - 2018

I'd like to introduce you this new communication & music project, a unique opportunity that will begin in October 2018 in Toronto.  A great visibility idea off the beaten path !

Shall "Your Brand" be interested in a sponsorship-collaboration while I'm performing in the subway of Toronto?

This project aims to be present and profit from the new spontaneous trend of posting photos & videos online on social networks.
Here the link to the presentation, in which you can see the details (description of the concept, data & statistics, hints on my current monthly communication impact) 

text me in private

5 - August - Ratzeburg - Germany

relaxing music Sunday afternoon in Ratzeburg in the park behind the ice shop Eis Pavillon Pelz  


4 - August - Travemunde - Germany

cool vibes this evening in Travemunde along the promenade

1 - August - Toronto - Canada

occasionally a stroke of luck it does not hurt ;-)
my economy ticket became a business one flying back to Amsterdam..
very comfortable


27 - July - Toronto - Canada

this Pizza, I made it by myself !


22 - July - Toronto - Canada

the 2 gigs Friday 27th & Saturday 28th @ Roma1090 (1090 Bloor St W - Toronto) are confirmed.
I'll play unplugged, voice & guitar. Join me from 7 pm to 10 pm


21 - July - Toronto - Canada

Jahtarie stayed there for all the duration until the last song.
I had an angel in front of me for 3 hours...


20 - July - Toronto - Canada

breaking news,

playing in Toronto on a street... 240 dollars if you use the amplification.
this is the result from today on Court.
I've tried to explain to the judge what happened and that when the municipal police came I was just starting.. and that the complains were from the guy who was playing before me.. (you can check the details reported on May 30th).. but the City of Toronto Municipal's lawyer said that the maximum fine could have been 25.000 dollars, so the Judge look at me and asked me if that was ok for me..

since on the ticket it was written that I was a "busker", the Judge asked me if I had a job, and in how many days I could have paid the fine.. (paid the same day) 
why if you are a musician a judge should ask you if you have a job..?
when I played with the batteries speaker, I did not to be loud, but at least to be able to hear myself.. without a little sound, you there with only the guitar surrounded by noises, appear debased..
many noises are allowed in Toronto (for example it was very difficult to sleep for almost 2 years when they were building a skyscraper right in front of my unit a couple of years ago, or all the noises from the motorcycles or cars, etc..).. but not a portable little speaker with batteries..
I feel offended as an artist.
they let everything go ahead because business and they make money from that.. 
but they are coming very strong on an artist who is trying to share positive feelings among people..
everything will come back one day.. 


18 - July - Toronto - Canada

Unfortunately, caused by complaints from the neighborhood the next last 4 gigs @ Roma 1090 have been canceled. Sorry about that. There will be soon other occasions.


12 - July - Toronto - Canada

Hi Potential Company Staff

A new communication and music project, that will begin on October 2018 in Toronto. A great marketing concept for your brand off the beaten path !

Shall your brand be interested in a sponsorship, making me wear your male trendy clothing lines &  being present on my posters/signboards while I'm performing in the subway of Toronto?

The new visibility idea aims to be present and profit from the new spontaneous trend of posting photos & videos online on social networks.
Clinking Here you can find the presentation , in which you can see the details (description of the concept, data & statistics, hints & my current monthly communication impact),

This is an innovative marketing approach to be in touch with new people, that I'd like to explain better in the details in person.
let me know what you think.
Antonio Piretti TOZ


11 - July - Toronto - Canada

a thought that I'd like to share.
what do you think about the constant announcements from the speakers by the TTC, regarding "if you see something, say something", or other measures to prevent suspicious actions..?

honestly, it seems weird to me.. I mean, probably exaggerated..
I understand that the goal is to prevent a problem.. but when you push so much looking for problems.. then this is what you only see.

I feel that these announcements are putting pressure & negative feeling.. it seems we are in a kind of "suspicious & dangerous situation" where instead what my eyes see is a place (the subway) in which the people are polite, normal, calm, smiling.. and where there is also music.

to my eyes, I have always felt secure and never in danger in the subway of Toronto (and I can say that I've spent a lot of time there).. I never saw or experienced a problem.. 
I just don't see this need to empathize so much with this drama, etc..

and those announcements are repeated so so many times (probably once every 2 minutes) that it seems to be in a hospital for mental problems.

what do you think about that, wouldn't be better to send out a more positive and loving message..?

it's only me that I'm feeling int hat way..?

(you can reach me either on social media or at the email address you find on the contact page)

8 - July - Toronto - Canada
it's always nice to browse a page like this one ..
Since when I started to play live I had always with me a guestbook on which fans can write comments & their contacts to keep in touch..
after 12 years we are almost at the end of the 3rd guest book.
So many memories, comments & emails (6.000).
you can join my contact list also in the "contact" page and subscribe to the newsletter.


5 - July - Toronto - Canada
during this last week I'm working on this new idea... 
"a songwriter in the subway - Toz Antonio Piretti"

30 - May - Toronto - Canada
I had a free day and I wanted to play as rehearsal and in general to keep the momentum..
I went to my usual spot on Queen Street W exit Eaton Center but a new guy was playing..
I asked him until when he wanted to play, and I waited.
after I heard his first song I went to him and I told him that his volume was way too loud..
he turned the volume lower a little.. around 5 pm he stopped and when we were talking he told me that in the last 2 weeks he didn't have any problem except for today when somebody came down and told him something.. I commented, "of course, your volume, as I told you, was too loud"..
then I started..
after 30 minuted the control by the Municipal Police came, they saw me and came quite strong on me, telling me:
"We have received many complains about you today, you can't use the amplification"..
I said "but I just started, there was another guy before me"
while I was packing my things they were on their car, and after 5 or 10 minutes, they came to me, saying "this is not a fine, but you have to go to court"..     "WHAT..?" I exclaimed..
they gave me a yellow ticket on which it's written that on July 20th I have to appear before the Ontario Court of justice because I committed the offense of "use generator, amplifier or sound system"
I was quite shocked.. appearing in front of a court for a speaker..?
mah.. that's the very first time that this happens to me, very unlucky day and quite disappointed..

3 - May - Toronto - Canada
flying day, from Hamburg to Toronto, via Amsterdam, where I'm now..
the flight for Toronto is delayed, so I'm just chasing time at Schipol Airport.
to reach the gate (G6), as usual in this airport, I had to walk a long distance, and it's been
funny to remember my different moods across the times in which I passed here along the years.
happy about this last one.


25 - April - Hamburg - Germany
after several months spent learning piano and practicing every day, I've recorded a couple of videos, just voice & piano.. as a first step, the first memory.
Thanks to the Seedorf's Church and Father Jacob for having allowed me to play that piano whenever I wanted... a large room with a cool vintage Zimmerman tuned piano, lights, heating just for me. 
Sometimes very early in the morning, sometimes in the night, always surrounded & embraced by that amazing natural reverb... Thank You, very appreciated, these first steps are for you:
Il Tuo Nome Nelle Parole - People Without Fear - Anche Se Lontano

very nice yesterday @ Marias Ballroom, I felt really good..
a big & comfortable changing room, only for me.. with craft and any kind of beverage..
fresh sandwiches with the option vegetarian / meat..
5 drinks and the Gema papers on the table..
in the crowd there were friends with my t-shirt who during the live were singing the lyrics of my songs along with me.. and in the slow songs also the mobile light was turned on.. 
I couldn't believe that.. what could you ask for more..?
