When he moved to Jakarta, Koeswoyo had become a high official in the Ministry of Home Affairs. He brought his children who are partly hooked music. Tonny is among the most avid. At that time, his children grow up. Since Koeswoyo felt that being a civil servant could not meet the needs of a family that was almost like football teams, he eventually worked as a plantation manager around Solo.

Tonny who continues to practice music was not able to last long with his old bands. Like Barry Gibs frontman Bee Gees, Tonny trains his siblings with music that they bought moms and Jhon, his brother who works on a project in Jakarta.

Together with his younger siblings, though with his makeshift musical instruments, Tonny gigs from party to party before finally recording, famous and goes to jail for Western music they bring under the banner of Koes Brothers.

Nasution's children have friends who are not only fond of music, but also tajir. Understandably, son of Ibnu Sutowo, Director of Pertamina longest in history. His name is Pontjo, later known as a great national businessman.

"Pontjo Sutowo bought a set of super-sophisticated musical instruments for the size of that era. Yes! Pontjo apparently imported a first-rate set of musical instruments with the Marshal brand, Fender and there were a few more of them. It may be said that the musical instruments involved all musical instruments owned by bands in remote parts of Jakarta, or even in Indonesia, "Chrisee I wrote as written by Albertine Endah in Chrisye: A Musical Memoir (2007).
