John Tropea is one of the most admired and highly regarded guitar players of his generation. In his long career, his contributions to other artist's successes have been numerous, including his solo work with Deodato, (2001 theme), projects with Laura Nyro, Harry Chapin (Cat's in the Cradle), Paul Simon (Fifty Ways), Alice Cooper (Goes to Hell), Eric Clapton (Journey Man), Dr. John, and many others. He is also a composer, arranger, and producer whose vital work is ably demonstrated by his personal projects. Tropea began guitar studied at Berklee School of Music in Boston, where he studied jazz guitar, harmony, composition, and big band arranging. Immediately after arriving in Boston, Tropea began playing live R & B and jazz gigs with many different bands in the area, including The Three Degrees. Influenced by Wes Montgomery, Johnny Smith, Louis Bonfa, Pat Martino, and George Benson, it was at this time that Tropea began to absorb those influences into an original style of his own. Also among his mentors at the time were the great B3 organ players Jack McDuff and Jimmy Smith. Tropea recorded and toured with Deodato, and then moving to New York in 1967, Tropea quickly became one of the most sought after session players. As well as world touring, Tropea wrote and produced three critically acclaimed solo albums with TK records. Recently, Tropea has formed an astonishing band that not only gives voice to his "standard influences" but also defines him as a player, composer, and arranger of consummate musicianship and exciting presence. The band plays jazz, R&B, and Funk standards, along with original compositions. The Tropea Band plays with a savvy and wit that is appreciated by its audiences. Continually bringing new elements and surprises with each new tune, they know how to drive a set to an unbelievably energetic and satisfying conclusion. John Tropea Band Featuring: John Tropea - guitar, Chris Palmaro - B3 organ, Neil Jason - bass, Lee Finkelstein - drums, Don Harris - trumpet, Dave Mann - tenor Sax, Birch Johnson - trombone, Dave Riekenberg - bari Sax, Tommy Mcdonnell - vocals & Percussion Opening for John Tropea Band: Rob Paparozzi "Juke Joint" featuring John Korba, Dan Boone and Lee Finkelstein New Jersey-based frontman, singer, & harmonica player Rob Paparozzi has been a blues performer since 1967. But Rob is far from being strictly a blues musician. In fact, he's at home playing a wide range of music, ranging from rock to blues to jazz to pop. This versatility is reflected in the long & remarkably diverse list of major artists Rob has worked with such as B.B.King, Dr. John, Bruce Springsteen, Whitney Houston, Carole King, Roberta Flack, Culture Club, Cyndi Lauper, Randy Newman, Jimmy McGriff, & James Galway. Rob has toured the world with the "Original Blues Brothers Band", featuring guitar legend Steve Cropper & special guest Eddie Floyd & as Frontman-Lead Singer for Legendary "Blood Sweat and Tears"
