Veteran guitarist and sound sculptor, John Haseth has been performing every genre of music under the sun for almost 30 years. From Abba to Zappa, he’s done it all. After graduating from Five Towns college in 1986 and studying privately with NY jazz giant George Bien, John went on as guitarist and musical director for one of Long Island’s most successful society/wedding bands – Afterglow.
Wanting to delve back into the club scene, John put together AXIS: The Experience – a tribute to the music of Jimi Hendrix, one of his many influences.
After dropping out of the scene for a while, he decided to reacquaint himself with his love for the blues. By stepping in to a few local Open Mics, and completely by word of mouth, the gigs started coming again. Sitting in with many of the finest musicians Long Island has to offer, including Pamela Betti, gave John a reputation for being a monster player and a virtual musical encyclopedia!
Drummer Mike Costarella is no stranger to the music business working consistently throughout the years , enjoying a variety of projects encompassing many genres. Self taught, he was drawn to the drums and learned by ear while listening to the Beatles and Motown records including whatever 60’s band had a happening groove. Of course when Cream and Led Zepplin hit the radio waves, his heart was captivated. Mike has contributed his “feel” in a variety of original bands like Mr. GT and Durty Angels.
Mike is always reinventing himself and is really excited to be back in the Blues and Funk/R&B circuit again. Known for his intense “feel” (his secret weapon) Mike lends unique sound to the bands bottom feel with passion and commitment. A man who truly performs through his heart and soul.
Coming to full circle in a sense, Mike is having a blast playing with the Divine Ms. Betti!
“Sly” is an amazing musician and has played with everyone who is anyone in this business. No stranger to Blues and Funk, Sly really lays it down with a deep groove like no other. He is an integral part of the Pamela Betti Band and is responsible for giving the PBB it’s signature sound!
Tm Dorsey is a constantly evolving keyboardist who brings his experience from the Funk/Souls bands, "Juice," "Ozone," and "Snap" to the Pamela Betti Band. "Funky Tim" brings his brand of funky soul to every show!
This is a
MUST SEE LIVE band!
It's always a great time with the PBB!
