Born in Philadelphia, PA. John spent his teenage years listening to Philly Rock stations WMMR and WYSP. I wasn't long before a neighbor and friend gave him a cheap electric guitar. I was then John decided to take guitar lessons at a local guitar shop. He played with some local high school friends before moving to Naples, Fl. in 1986. After meeting some great local guitar players, John decided to switch to bass guitar. John has been playing bass on the local music scene for over 20 years. Joining the band Tangent in 2019 gave John the opportunity to sharpen his skills, by his account playing with some of the best musicians the area has to offer.
