Damn The Torpedoes (Tom Petty Tribute)
Damn The Torpedoes (Tom Petty Tribute)
Rich Kubicz, who plays the role of Tom Petty in the show, has been playing guitar and singing since his early teens. By 2007, so many people had told him that he looked and sounded like
Tom Petty that he decided to put together Damn The Torpedoes as a tribute to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

The goal was to play all of the studio hits, some of the live versions and a few deep cuts to create the illusion of a Tom Petty concert performance. This meant that each band member
would need to find the same sounds as on the records and play their parts note for note.

Over the years Damn The Torpedoes has evolved with a deeper understanding of the Tom Petty catalog and more committed members. The current lineup has been in place for several years
and demonstrates the unspoken chemistry that makes any great band. All of the signature riffs, harmonies and underlying parts of the music are there---and the show has become “second
nature” with an artistry and emotion that makes audiences smile. Or as Rich likes to say, we deliver the “awe factor” in every performance.

Jimi Alan
(Mike Campbell… Lead Guitar)

Jimi has been playing guitar professionally for over 30 years in cover band and original music projects. With experience in various styles of music including Funk, Rock, Blues, and R&B, Jimi has mastered the techniques to play note for note renditions of some of the greatest lead guitarists and can create
identical guitar sounds. Jimi is also an experienced sound technician and recording engineer.

Gary Castelluccio
(Benmont Tench/Scott Thurston… Keyboards, Piano, Guitar, Harmonica, Backing Vocals)

Gary has been involved with music and performing since the age of 13. He started with guitar and later learned to play keyboard and harmonica. Over the years, he has played in cover bands, original projects and studio sessions. His experience and versatility has helped him to become a consummate side man
adding support and color to the bands he works with. His music projects have allowed him to travel world wide as a Music Industry professional. He has also helped Musical instrument companies to develop many new products that are sold today in music stores everywhere.

Jon Provan
(Ron Blair/Howie Epstein, Bass Guitar and backing vocals)

Jon caught the music bug young, playing and singing in rock bands, a cappella groups, sax quartets, theatre pits, recording studios and more. He’s also laid down his bass groove for many
Indie and original bands. When not on stage with DTT, Jon is the musical director at a theater, a solo artist and a theatrical performer.

Ross Kantor
(Stan Lynch/Steve Ferrone...Drums/Percussion and Backing Vocals)

Ross is the quintessential percussionist and the driving force behind DTT's tight rhythm section. His versatility allows him to play with the finesse of Stan Lynch and the power of Steve Ferrone while also adding polished vocals to an already very melodic harmony section. When Ross isn't playing with DTT, he is an in-demand drummer for live events, indie bands and
studio sessions.
Unforgettable Fire (U2 tribute)
Unforgettable Fire (U2 tribute)
Unforgettable Fire, or "UF", was born on New Years Day in 1995 as one of the first U2 tribute bands to perform in America. After over 23 years of playing in some of the most prestigious venues on the East coast, UF has formed a reputation among many to be one of the closest experiences to being at an actual live U2 show. The members of UF are also very dedicated fans of U2, and will not settle for anything less than complete authenticity. In addition to performing a very impressive array of U2 material from pre-"Boy" to the most recent releases and beyond, UF does everything in its power (from wardrobe to lighting) to recreate the live U2 concert setting for their audience.

One of UF's last founding members from 1995, drummer George (Larry) Levesanos, still performs with the band to this day. George is a veteran drummer on the New York City music scene and has performed in many other projects and rock bands before forming UF. Joining the band in 2001 was singer Tony (Bono) Russo. Over the years, Tony has brought UF to a new level of authenticity as he is regarded as one of the top Bono look-a-likes in the world, even singing on the same stage with The Edge and Adam Clayton. In 2002, bassist Craig (Adam) Kiell added his top notch musicianship, experience, and stage presence to the band and has been a crucial part of the solid rhythm section ever since. 2004 brought Mick (Edge) Normoyle to the band to complete the last piece of its puzzle in UF's quest to have the truest, most authentic live U2 sound. All four members of UF are talented musicians in their own right, but together they are committed in bringing their audiences the best U2 show possible. UF would like to thank all of our fans for their continued support and grace over the last 22 years!
