ADVANCE MUSIC CELEBRATES 35 YEARS OF BUSINESS IN VERMONT!
I started playing with Gina roughly three years ago, in preparation for a wedding ceremony at which we were asked to perform. My background is rocker at heart, dabbler in jazz guitar/bass, lover of R&B and funk, recent convert to the glories of contemporary gospel and big fan of most all things musical. Gina brought many tunes and styles to the plate that I otherwise would have never considered. Her constant search for interesting music has paid dividends and we now share a repertoire that is unique to the Jeff & Gina duo. Muriel Anderson, Butch Baldasari, obscure (to me) jazz tunes and hey, we've even learned some cool irish tunes. Her natural gift as a multi-instrumentalist has created a variety that, well, let's just say, there's never a dull moment. I tend to bring the Jeff Beck, Stevie Wonder, Sting, Hendrix, occasional Zeppelin, love putting a twist on the rocker stuff. We've recently discovered that we share a long-time love of Frank Zappa so we're working on a few Zappa tunes. Come check us out!
Some new tunes we're now doing: Fragile - Sting, While My Guitar Gently Weeps - The Beatles, Nothing Compares 2 U and Diamonds and Pearls - Prince, Streets of Bakersfield - Dwight Yoakem, Master Blaster - Stevie Wonder. Come hear us soon!
