Starting with local Long Island bands
in the 70's, George played all the clubs
and bars that offered "live music" as the
guitarist with a band called "Essence".
The band was well known for their strikingly
accurate renditions of songs by progressive
acts such as The Who, Yes, Genesis and of
course The Beatles. The band featured intricate
harmonies involving all five members.
Next up was a real education in Rock and Roll,
George became a member of one of Long Island's
legendary bands, The Good Rats. The band had
several album releases and had a reputation of
having the finest musicians in the Tri-State (NY,
NJ, CT) area. The Good Rats have recently
been inducted in the Long Island Music Hall of Fame.
Over the years, George has played with members
of the following well known bands: Billy Joel, Blue
Oyster Cult, Billy Squire, Meatloaf, The Outlaws, Foghat
and Deep Purple.
For the last several years, George has been playing
solo acoustic guitar, and has been busy playing the
east end of Long Island and the Hamptons. He is
excited to be part of the very vital music scene on Long Island.
