The Band

Rob Paparozzi

New Jersey-based vocalist & harmonica player Rob Paparozzi has been a blues performer since 1967. But far from being strictly a blues musician. He's at home playing a wide range of music, ranging from rock to blues to jazz to pop. His versatility is reflected in the remarkably diverse list of major artists Rob has worked with, including B.B.King, Dr. John, Bruce Springsteen, Whitney Houston, Carole King, Roberta Flack, Culture Club, Cyndi Lauper, Randy Newman and James Galway.  Rob has toured the world with the “Original Blues Brothers Band”, featuring guitar legend Steve Cropper and special guest Eddie Floyd and also as Frontman-Lead Singer for the legendary "Blood Sweat and Tears"  Rob’s own band "Juke Joint" does local shows in New York’s tri-state region.


John Tropea

John Tropea is one of the most admired and highly regarded guitar players of his generation. His playing shows a vast knowledge and respect for the tradition of the instrument as well as an original style that continues to define the guitar. John has written for and played with major recording artists , including Deodato, Laura Nyro, Harry Chapin, Paul Simon, Alice Cooper, Eric Clapton and Dr. John. He is also a composer, arranger, and producer whose work is ably demonstrated by his personal projects. Moving to New York in 1967, Tropea quickly became one of the most sought after session players Tropea wrote and produced three critically acclaimed solo albums; “Tropea” in 1975, followed by “Short Trip to Space” and “To Touch You Again.”
