WAYNE LIZARDI

Hailing from his Puerto Rican birthplace roots, Wayne Lizardi found himself bound for New York City, moving there with his parents. At age 12 he formed his first band. 

 

Migrating southward again he landed in Cocoa Beach where he went to high school playing trombone and guitar for the school's Jazz/Rock band. Wayne was a guitar major at UCF and he seems to know every song ever written!

 

Our resident guitar wizard cites Jimmy Page, jimi Hendrix and Ingwie Malmsteen as some of his influences.

MATTHEW PORCARO

From Alexandria, VA Matthew started drumming at age 10 and hasn't stopped, focusing on snare drum rudiments/marches in high school and drum set rhythms/grooves after college.  He's been in too many bands to count, played too many gigs to recall...a drumming jukebox with no quarters needed.

 

Influences include Vinnie Appice, Neil Peart, Jeff Porcaro, and Steve Smith.  He listens mostly to hard rock/heavy metal as well as progressive rock, records whatever his long-time singer/songwriter friend writes, and plays rock/pop/Motown live.

 

In Joules Rio Matthew keeps the beat and provides a bit of excitement.
