Dan can be heard on the album Introducing Julia La Shae which was voted the #3 album of 2003 by The Times-Picayune.
Upon settling in Los Angeles in 1987, Ted returned to his roots in nylon string guitar and began taking play dates and gigs on movies, various artists’ albums and so forth. He then explored an interest in Flamenco and studied it seriously for 3 years.
For the last 8 years, Ted has been enjoying being a band member for the Science of Mind Spiritual Center Los Angeles. When he’s not playing with The AwSOM Band, Ted teaches guitar privately in Culver City and promotes his “International Favorites Classical Guitar” album.
So driven by the beat as a child, Todd would sneak into his school’s band room and practice on their drum kit. His passion and devotion to percussion soon caught the attention of the school’s band director and music teacher, Frank Conti, who became Todd’s mentor. “He believed in me and taught me to improvise, play from my soul and perfect my craft.”
Within 7 years, at the young age of 14, Todd began drumming professionally for local gigs in the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area.
