Musician

Bobby Faria

Born:

Raised in Middletown, RI by two very musical parents, this man has been playing music since the age of 4 or 5 when he used to jam with his Mom and Dad. Little Bobby would be strumming on the ukulele while his father, Tony Faria stretched out on violin or guitar and his mother, Lolly played the piano. Later on, in his high school years, he played a rented tenor saxophone in the school concert band.  At around the same time, he began his love of performing when he fronted and played guitar in several locally successful rock bands. 

There is no way that I can compare myself to any specific artist. I sound a little like everyone I've ever loved listening to... but I try to only steal from the very best.

Musician

Brad Allen

Singer-songwriters are rare in the world of jazz, and even more so when the songwriter is a drummer. “It’s clear to me how everything I’ve done in my life has lead me to where I am right now in my music career,” says Allen. “I spent several years writing songs in other genres including folk, pop, rock, country and alternative. Those experiences definitely influenced my jazz writing. I want to write catchy, fun, interesting tunes that people will remember – tunes that other artists might also want to perform.” “I grew up in a small town in Nebraska. Not exactly a hotbed of jazz
