Top Shelf was the first popular band I played with after moving back to CT from Texas. Many of us are still friends today.
Of all the horn setions I have ever worked with, these guys are the best: Carl Querfurth, Rich Lataille and Doug James, all of Roomful of Blues fame.
All Stars featuring David "Lefty" Foster, a consummate band leader.
We did several tours with BB King. On this gig he was so sick they carried him in. He did a blistering guitar set that night that I'll never forget.
All dressed up for a classical gig.
Duke Robillard, Rhode Islands's resident genious composer and guitar player. Look close, he's playing bass here for the first time in public.
Here's my grandson, Ethan.
A Foxwoods band, with the great Jimmy Biggins.
I took this picture of Harvey Brooks and Rocco Prestia. They had never met and I had the pleasure of introducing them. Permagrins all the way around!
Jack Scarangella is the best. His drum solo's are works of art.
Here's my grandson, Jude. Teach your children well...
KD Bell was a truely great performer. We did some miles together.
Little Anthony and the Locomotives was our signature band in eastern CT. We dmade some great recordings and Anthony Geraci continues to be a prolific songwriter and great piano player, currently working with Sugar Ray Norcia and the Bluetones.
My pal Amadee Castinell. We worked together for 5 or 6 years in a few bands. This shot was given to us by a fan. We were all business that night.
Motown Review, with Rex Green and Willie Wilson. Man those guys could sing. That's Colin Tilton on sax.
Greg Piccolo continues to be a prolific songwriter and performer. I am honored to play with his various bigger groups.
