William’s guitar solo is featured on ‘Tonight’
Bill says he was a terrible guitar student who, at age 7, only took lessons because his parents made him do it. By 14, he called it quits with his instructor. Although he had developed an affection for music, he wanted to do it on his own terms. As a teenager, he connected with like-minded guys and formed a band. Bill’s dad is an electrician, so the technical aspects of working with sound equipment came easy to him. In his search to produce the best quality sound, he became aquainted with Dennis Verduchi, owner of Sound Stage Productions in Providence. One thing led to another and Bill wound up on the payroll at Sound Stage. Here Bill honed his skills as a live sound engineer.
Through the years, Bill never left the guitar. It has become his favorite form of worship.
Bill lives with his wife Kim in Warwick, Rhode Island

Can be felt in most of our recordings. At 16, he started out learning to play his older brother’s bass guitar. He later transferred his knowledge of the bass to the piano and started playing with local bands. In the late 70’s, David joined the U.S. Army. While stationed in Germany, he teamed up with other military musicians to form a group called Onyx. An army general who heard the group perform at a German/American festival, cut orders excusing the group members from standard duties. They were to devote their time to rehearsing and playing for military functions.
