Singer Mark Tornillo‘s pre-ACCEPT band TT QUICK reunited for a performance at Rock N’ Roll Heaven and the Old Bridge Metal Militia‘s reunion concert and fundraiser to benefit the victims of Superstorm Sandy. The event took place on May 11 at Encore Event Center in Freehold, New Jersey. Also appearing on the bill were TWISTED SISTER, ANVIL, RAVEN, THE RODS and LORDS OF MERCY.

TT QUICK was a popular club band during the 1980s in the New York and New Jersey area and was known for the guitar work of David Dipietro and the powerful vocals of Mark Tornillo. Dipietro‘s skills were especially singled out as he had given lessons to both Zakk Wylde of the OZZY OSBOURNE band and SKID ROW‘s Dave Sabo.
TT QUICK disbanded and later reunited sporadically and released a few more albums, including a live CD from one of their reunion gigs (“Thrown Together Live”) and a studio effort, “Ink”, which came out in 2000.
