Netcong, New Jersey
I started singing in bands at the age of twelve, , influenced by my father who sang barbershop and my grandfather who had his own Big Band and played piano. My ancestors came to the US from Belgium in 1886 and played for their passage by being the entertainment on the steam ship.
I have played trumpet since the age of ten in the North Haledon Community Band and continued playing through Manchester Regional High School in Haledon, NJ in the marching and concert band.
I have also appeared with J.T. CARTER and The CRESTS, The Fabulous INFERNOS SHOW BAND.
I have appeared all over the tri state area, Madison Square Garden, The Continental Airlines Arena,
Philadelphia Spectrum, Nassau Coliseum and Atlantic City Showrooms.
Many thanks to Dennis Rotunda, Bobby Stefanelli, Bobby Wells, J.T. and Lee Carter and most of all Michael Schiavo, who helped me get to where I am today.
I operate the Sound and arrange vocals and tracks for the Symphonics.
I live with my wife and best friend of many years Terry ( Giampino ) in Netcong, NJ.
I use a Sennheiser Wireless ew365 e865 Microphone and Sennheiser wireless in ear monitors.
I sing on the Worship Team at Grace Church in Netcong.
I have 6 wonderful grandchildren.
I am a family member of The Police Honor Legion of New Jersey.
