J.J. recently celebrated his 10 year anniversary with Rubber City.
Before joining Rubber City, J.J. stayed active singing with various groups throughout High School in Naugatuck under William C. Davis. And then, at Central Connecticut State University, under Dr. Pamela Perry. These 2 individuals, were his mentors in music, & helped him become the performer he is today. He also remains busy performing with 4 other local bands. Pocket Full of Soul , On the Serious Side , Parkway Diner and Shaded Soul Band
From numerous stints in musical theatre, performances with Grammy Award winning recording artists, as well as recently fulfilling a lifelong dream of performing @ Carnegie Hall in New York City, J.J. has been blessed with many opportunities that music has brought to him over the years. He credits his current bandmates & friends in Naugatuck for all of the good fortunes that have come his way musically, since he became part of the band in 2011.
“All of the musical endeavors I’m a part of today, are a direct result of the opportunity I was first given, by Rubber City ... For that, I will be eternally grateful ."
