Joanie- Lead Vocals, Keys, Percussion
Joanie has been singing since the age of 8. Started taking it seriously at 15, doing high school musicals and such.... Then joined her first rock band at 18 and that was it...
Influenced by Fleetwood Mac, The Pretenders, The Who and all the great rock and roll from the 70's & 80s
She's been playing professionally for 35 years doing anything from sub work for other bands to her own project, Cool Change, which she put together in 2004
And is still going strong....
Along with Two For The Road... Another duo she's played with several bands on the northshore singing lead, most recently, along side her HOOda Thunk band mates and last year was asked to sing back up for Barry Goudreau's Engine Room (very cool) with dates booking into next year....these projects are close to her heart.... and all these people are in her music family (you all know who you are). Now it's time for the family tree to grow.... with Party On!
Pat - Lead Vocals, Guitar
Pat has been performing for well over a decade. He has performed all over the North Shore at night clubs, formal events, and outdoor festivals. He’s been sought after for his powerful vocals and solid electric rhythm and acoustic guitar work. He’s been a regular performer at venues such as The Grog and Michael’s Harborside in Newburyport and has performed at many other great venues over the years.
Pat has performed with several successful north shore bands including Joppa Flatts, Black Dog Howl, and The PineTones. His wide range of influences include Classic Rock, Blues, Jazz, Motown, 80’s, and Contemporary/Pop music. Pat was inspired to play music by his talented Uncle Sal Schepici who led the Sal Skip Trio at the Sunday Jazz Brunch at Three Cheers in Boston, MA.
Craig - Lead Guitar, Vocals
Craig started playing the guitar at the age of 7 and is heavily influenced by all the great guitarists and classic rock bands of the 70’s and 80’s. Craig has been performing in various professional cover bands at all different types of venues, events and festivals throughout the New England area since the early 1980’s – most notably with “Secret Service”, “Passion Play”, “Kitty Hawk” and “Dirty Rocks”. He has also performed as a fill-in guitarist for bands in the past.
Craig now provides his tasty lead guitar work and backing vocals for Party On! which draws upon his versatility and vast experience over the years playing a wide variety of classic rock, blues, funk, and pop music and performing high energy shows that truly rock the house down.
Mike - Bass Guitar, Vocals
Mike's calm demeanor, positive personality and rock-solid playing style makes him a great asset to this band. When the music really starts exploding, we can count on Mike to hold it all together. Besides his past work as an in-demand fill-in bass player, Mike spent fifteen years with the Neil Young tribute band "Rust Never Sleeps", eight years with the award winning country rock/blues band "Full House", three years+ with Joppa Flatts, and five years with the classic rock band "Flashback". He's performed throughout New England and New York at venues such as Showcase Live, BB Kings, The Iron Horse, Johnny D's, The Blue Star, Indian Ranch, The Bull Run and at Boston's City Hall Plaza and the Hatch Shell on the Esplanade.
Neil - Drums
Playing drums since he was a kid, Neil has been playing gigs for the better part of 30 years. Rock, country, jazz, blues... whether it's a country show at Indian ranch, a top 40 cover gig in Boston, a blues benefit, or a small town parade, Neil has been laying down the groove tastefully each and every time. His drum "heroes "include Steve Gadd, Vinnie Colaiuta, Tony Williams, Benny Greb, and the incomparable Dean Johnston of club d'elf.
Now Neil is the driving force behind Party On! His solid command of the drums are evident on every song they play. From blues to high energy rock & roll, Neil covers all the bases with the ease and execution only seen from a true pro! Most talk the talk – Neil rocks the rock!
