Tony Butler was a Liverpool legend who played a massive part in the Liverpool Music Scene and influencing grassroots communities like us to push forward and support each other.
Times like this are difficult to put into words so we wanted to show are respect in the way we know best. The Zanzibar Club in Liverpool has been home for so many musicians, bands, artists, photographers and fans who have attended gigs there. Tony was one of the most supportive, honest and friendly guys we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. There are many venues around the UK that don’t make photographers feel at home but Tony always made Zanzibar such a friendly & fun place to head to photograph a gig.
Tony will be remembered for nothing other than his love & support for the Liverpool music scene. Our thoughts & prayers are with his family at this difficult time.
The photographs below showcase exactly what Tony created, a thrilling venue that gave so many people their first gig.
Peace & Love <3 x
