Owner:Don Coy (was: Mike Trombly; then Pam & Tom Dillander))
From Don Coy: TNT records was started in the late 70's by Mike Trombley, a caller from St. Albans, Vermont. Mike was probably the first square and round dance record producer to use a synthesizer as the source of music. One could say Mike is a pioneer because the synthesizer plays a big role in most of the square and round dance music recorded today. Over the years so many great callers have recorded on TNT. Besides Mike, there have been such great callers as Gene Trimmer, Jack O'Leary, Al Brundage and many more. TNT is also known for its classic round dance music. What round dance cuer does not use Buffy or Take One Step? Palomino Records bought TNT in the late 90's. After Tom Dillander took over TNT, the sound of TNT changed to a synthesizer used along with other instruments added. I was the first to record for Tom after the takeover. The first tune I recorded for TNT with the new sound was I've Been Working On The Railroad. The music uses a synthesizer, banjo, guitar and bass. The sound changed back to the synthesizer in the mid 2000's when Tom at Palomino began using music from Hiroshi Yaoko of Japan. Take a listen to all of the wonderful patter music that Hiroshi has created. Callers such as myself, Jerry Jestin and Bobby Poyner have added their voices to the music of Hiroshi. As the new owner of TNT. I feel as though I now own a part of history and I promise to continue making TNT music something you would like to use.
