STEPHEN PERTESIS BIO
I am a professional guitarist and vocalist (baritone) in modern musical styles (rock, pop, funk, blues, jazz, country, RnB). Having graduated from Berklee College of Music in '04, I have expanded my professional opportunities in the CT/MA region. Currently, I play weekly gigs with Hot House, MIB2, as well as subbing on guitar for Those Guys rock trio, Lovefest, and Hazzard County, as well as various solo/duo acoustic gigs.
I have played for Natalie Stoval, Rachel Solomon, Article 19, Steve Gregory Band, Lucas Carpenter, Emily Colt, Jeff Ramsey, Kyle Saulnier, Traci Root, Hazzard County, Those Guys, Lovefest, Hot House, MIB2, Groove Junkies, The Pickup Kings, Off the Charts, and various small combo jazz lineups. This includes studio sessions as well as live performances.
My old band "Steve Gregory Band," most notably has opened for many great acts including: Lifehouse, Los Lonely Boys, Jeffrey Gaines, Elliot Yamin, Teddy Geiger, Chris Allen, Ryan Cabrera, Landon Pig, Brendan James, Brett Dennon, Big Shot, and The Breakfast. Under that psuedonym, I also won 2nd place in DCT "Song Of the Year" competition and an honorable mention in 2010 with yet a different "Song Of the Year" competition. Article 19 also did quite well opening for American Idol winner, Kris Allen, and a few other nationals while also performing a great set for the NACA Hartford conference in '09.
