Tom Guarna: Mad Scientist

TG: I am starting up a new band. I will be playing at the 55 Bar on Sunday May 15th, with a new group of mine. This is more of an electric project—keyboards, electric bass, etc. It's in the very beginning stages. I have not selected all the musicians and I am still composing songs for this gig. I hope I can get everything together by then and record this year. I am also playing in bassist Will Vinson
