A relocation from South Jersey to Venice has given Jay the opportunity to fill the drum chair for the License To Chill Band.
Jay has played with some of the finest and popular “tri-state” musicians and bands such as The Hi Fidelity Band, Philly Rock and Soul, Platinum Groove and Komotion and is very excited to be part of License To Chill band playing the beat that will move your feet.
Vince Berardi - Vocals & Guitar
Herb Lester- Bass
Been playin' since I was 13. Really got into Deep Purple back then. Grabbed some of Roger Glover's style. Got into the jazz scene in Hartford Ct with a Latin Jazz band called Cocinando. Those cats really schooled me. Favorite band was Valhalla in 79 doing Progressive Rock; ELP, Rush, Jethro Tull, and some Jazz Fusion from Beck, Clarke, Cobham. After playing just about all styles of music over a 40+ year career, I'm very happy to be laying down the thump with License to Chill. Come on out and feel my thump!
I've been playing since I was 13. I will never forget the first acoustic guitar my Grandfather Vincenzo Berardi gave me. He too was a singing musician, I Had many influences including Eddie Van Halen Stevie Ray Vaughn back then Today I am influenced by Brad Paisley ,Jimmy Buffett Country -Rock & Blues.
