ABOUT

At the age of 6 I remember singing at my first wedding with the reassurance of my family. The song was King Of The Road by Roger Miller and I was instantly bitten by the allure of the stage after that. I then began singing in the choir at school and at the age of 8 I started playing violin at the urging of my father. By the time I turned 13 I switched to the guitar after getting a Fender Telecatser and Peavey amp for Chirtsmas. After graduating from high school, I attended Northampton Community College to study music theory with the encouragement of my teacher (Mike Krisukas) and my family. Shortly after that, my band Bullet was discovered playing in a New Jersey club by Media 5 Entertainment of Live and Fuel fame and I then began touring constantly with Bullet, Gandalf and with Idle Threats over the next 12 years.

Some of the the bands I have toured with, or opened for include:

Gregg Allman, Dave Mason, The Guess Who, Molly Hatchet, The Pat Travers Band, Twisted Sister, Mark Farner (Grand Funk Railroad), The Hooters (Eric Bazilian), The Good Rats, Zebra, Fuel, Live, Savatage (The Trans-Siberian Orchestra), The Sharks, Blue Oyster Cult, The A's, Greg Howe and Enuff Z'nuff.

I am proud to be pro-artist endorsed by Greg Bennett/ JTR designed Samick Guitars. I'm a recording artist for DreamlandDiscs with the band Radio Earth and a club musician. I teach guitar, bass and vocals via in-home instruction. I also do A&R and many bookings each year for my cover band Exit 22. You can contact me via email at: c.capozza829
