Tony Markellis was a mainstay of the Burlington music scene for more than 45 years, most notably as a founding member of Kilimanjaro and the Unknown Blues Band featuring Big Joe Burrell. Tony was also omnipresent musically and equally beloved in his adopted hometown of Saratoga Springs, N.Y. For the past 18 years, Tony gained national prominence playing bass in Phish front man Trey Anastasio’s eponymous sideline band. A complete obituary of Tony is available online here.
