Home History & Personnel About Dr. Tony Performance Schedule Music Songlist Contact


In 1999, Tony McDonald, a member of the Westerville Symphony, formed the Westerville Ragtime Band, made up from members and friends of the symphony.  Using the orchestration of the Red Back Book, an historic set of Scott Joplin rags that were arranged for small band, the group consisted of violins, piccolo, clarinet, cornet, trombone, tuba, piano and drums.  Based on that model, McDonald formed his own band, Dr. Tony's Original Ragtime Band, in 2004 with a slightly modified instrumentation, substituting saxophone for the violins.  He serves as director, chief arranger and trombone player of the group.
