Paul Quinzi, Lead Vocals

A natural tenor possessing both presence and range in his voice, 

the British Invasion has been a major influence and Paul captures the essence of Jagger’s vocal style without mimicking, lending the band a unique authenticity.


Paul is also a competent keyboard player and the piano and organ parts also help the group achieve that extra dimension that is part the Stones sound.


A songwriter as well, his music can be found on Reverbnation under Paul Quinzi and under Gembox.

Currently, Jeff spends most of his time learning new instruments including harmonica and mandolin as he sits in with local musicians periodically to perform with these instruments.
