Biography

 
 
Anthony Zimmitti joined The 88 in 2005, just after they recorded their second album, Over and Over. The band, always dressed in suits for their performances (a nod to old jazz and blues performers), offered buoyant melodies and a general cheerfulness on the album and during live performances. The 88 have always been known for intermittent gigging—all of their success is due to punishing touring ethics at the sacrifice of their personal lives.

Corporate America has taken note of The 88. Recently, they have appeared on television ad campaigns (Sears, Target, Microsoft), television shows (Grey’s Anatomy, The OC, The Hills, One Tree Hill), film (You, Me and Dupree, Failure to Launch, Little Miss Sunshine), and many live appearances (Jimmy Kimmel, Good Morning America). The 88 also performed as themselves on the CBS television series, How I Met Your Mother. The 88 have performed live alongside the Smashing Pumpkins, Guster, and Toad the Wet Sprocket.

In early 2008, The 88 finished recording their third album. Not Only...But Also is slated for an October release. They recorded three tracks with Babyface and ten songs with Matt Wallace. Anthony Zimmitti also performs with Gina Villalobos. Gina’s music could be described as country-rock with a healthy dose of poetry.
