ABOUT

I have been a performing musician since the 4th grade when I was the tuba player for my school band. Along the way I added trombone and soon became proficient playing in various local community and school bands, orchestras and ensembles. In 1981, as a high school senior, I was invited to play in the Wagner College Concert band and a year later attended that school as a music major after being awarded a scholarship.

While immersed in my studies, I soon became interested in the bass shortly after buying RUSH's Moving Pictures album. A polite obsession soon ensued. With the world of progressive rock, fusion and classic rock opened to me, I began to soak up the influences. I began the cover/original band Cheap Day Return with my brother Paul, endeavoring to write original material in the vein of my heroes, namely- RUSH, Jethro Tull, Yes, The Police, ELP, etc.

Upon receiving my B.A. in Music, I continued to write and play in all types of musical projects. In the mid 1990's, I developed a passion for the great R&B music of the 60s and 70s, acquiring much of my performance chops playing R&B, Funk, Soul and Disco, as much as, Prog and Hard Rock. Most notably, I am a founding and current member of the progressive rock trio GENERATOR since 1986, (./generatorny). I have also played in the local original projects: Cheap Day Return (1982-85), Odin (1984-85), Orient/Mirage (1985-88), Kilgore Trout (1986-88), Steve Broadway (1985-86), Deboys (1986), Radical (1984-86), The Bob Steele band (1990-91), as well as, the cover/wedding/tribute bands Souled Out (1995-2001), Groovity (2001-02), Bliss (2001-03), Hemispheres- The Rush Tribute (2004-Present), Kashmir Locust (2005-06), Yorktown Soul (2008-09), Vertigo (2009), En Que (2009-10), Patrick & the Rock-a-Silly Band (2010-Pr.), Monsters (2009-Pr.), Beyond Tomorrow (2012 to pr.), Dream Eternal Bliss (2014-15), Melissa Fiore (2015), Stardust (Bowie Tribute 2016), In Utero (2016).

Presently, I am involved in completing a 3 volume 25th Anniversary recording project with my original progressive band Generator (.bandmix/generator-ny), while contributing to several outside prog, pop & rock recording and performing projects. I gig regularly with my Kindie band Rock-a-silly in and around the Tristate area.
I am available to contribute in a permanent or temporary capacity to your project be it Rock/Prog/Tribute, R&B/Motown/Funk/Dance or Wedding/Corporate. I have an extensive repertoire that lets me jump right in! I read music and charts, have a good ear and can pick up a tune quickly. I also have impeccable writing and compositional skills which can be an asset to your original project.
All inquiries and projects will be given equal consideration.
