Tony Marra
Founder and President of Thermal Relief Design, Inc., Tony hails from Niagara Falls, NY, where he started his career in the music business installing Disco’s in western NY area. However his love for live sound brought him out to LA in the late 70’s and eventually touring the world with Ted Nugent, Rod Stewart, Tom Petty, Elvis Costello to name a few. Eventually the glamour of the rock concert wore and Tony relocated his family to NYC to head up Soundcraft NY in the late 80’s. And with the help of JBL’s purchase of Soundcraft, Tony started his first Authorized Service Center, TLM Electronics, Inc. in Pleasantville, NY. But when the snow and cold finally got the better of them, the Marra family packed up and headed to Las Vegas and TLM, a New York corporation became TRD, a Nevada corporation. Continuing his long relationships with British manufactures’ such as Soundcraft, Focusrite, and Drawmer, Tony continues to push Thermal Relief Design, Inc. into the new millennium.
