A note from Joe G: “Myself and my friend Joe Cassano, also known as 2 cups ‘a’ Joe…a title given to us by a Big Band singer who sang in the group “Moonlight on the Poconos”.
“Joe Cassano grew up in Long island and was a NYC Policeman until his retirement in 1998. He has always played Guitar, studying with Lew Monty (who also taught Jack Wilkins)…. [‘I think: O hell, he is the tall one’].”
Joe Guerra studied with two Jersey luminaries: Eddie Berg and Harry Leahy and adds “I have been playing Benedettos since I could walk (OK OK..A little exaggeration).”
Thanks for the great photos, “Joes”!
