Vincent Coratello - Bass Guitar
Vincent Coratello was born in Brooklyn, NY. His first instrument was a set of drums when he was three. Out of desperation, his parents got him a flute. In school, he played viola in the orchestra and clarinet in the marching band, while playing guitar for fun. After finally settling on the bass guitar as his primary instrument, he played in several garage bands, culminating with The Roman Lords, which gained some local popularity.
After earning a college degree in design, Vincent found some session work in New York City, and played on several commercials and TV show themes. He also continued playing in a series of bands. One was a Chinese rock band that played Top 40 tunes in Cantonese, and another was a 14 piece band in which Vincent was the only male. He also played in a Middle Eastern band, backing up a group of belly dancers.
He started writing songs and formed a group called So It Goes. He also became a member of The Hard Guys, a musical production group that focused on recording Art Rock. Vincent also got involved in the New York underground music scene with a band called Lemur And Flamingo, which was the opening act for The Ramones and Talking Heads.
At some point, Vincent began traveling, and ultimately moved to Las Vegas, where he became a full time musician, playing in several of the hotels, casinos, and lounges.
He produced several solo albums over the years, wrote the material for them, and played most of the instruments. He also wrote the music for two stage musicals. But eventually the charisma of the Susquehanna Valley beckoned, and Vincent and his wife moved to Elizabethtown, where they currently reside.
