After years of hits and contributions to music, producer Tony Dofat was honored by his home city of Mount Vernon, NY with “Tony Dofat Day.” Last Thursday (October 13), the city presented Dofat with accolades for his work in music, as an associate professor at Long Island University, and for his two music reference books. Tony’s day will be officially celebrated on October 19th.
Dofat has produced for the likes of Heavy D, Mary J. Blige, Jodeci, and many others over the course of his career. He also plans to work closely with the city to help reduce violence.
He was joined by longtime friend/recording artist Olivia at the ceremony, which you can see pictures of below.
