ABOUT

I'm a guitarist based outside of Media, PA. I have been playing with various outfits, and am always open to joining up with a new project or playing with new musicians. In other words, bands come and go, and I don't want that to keep me away from the music. I'm looking for musicians/bands needing a guitarist who are interested in playing for parties, bars, festivals, etc. or whatever else may come. I prefer a group that has a serious focus, whether you're established or starting up. I can't handle drama or B.S., been through enough of that. And let's not forget an important part of it is to have some FUN and just jam out.

I play both rhythm and lead guitar. I can be pretty versatile and diverse regarding genre and stylings. Feel free to contact me about your band or project, details can be discussed. I own a couple guitars, a gig-ready amp, and other misc. stuff. I'm also a decent singer, but don't contact me solely for vocals. However, I do make for a great background singer and I can give some good vocal harmonies for you.
I also have plenty of stage experience, and some experience recording in studio.

Attached above are some recordings I played on with some bands in the past.

If you're interested or have any further questions, contact me at volpe21 (at) (dot)com, or call me at 215-834-0227.
