A Musical Journey … Always an Unpredictable Ride’ quotes the NY Times about Jersey Shore music scene veteran Pat Guadagno.  The Self-Proclaimed Saloon Singers found his way out from under the TV, in the corner, behind the pool table,   into the international spotlight when his music was featured on the Award-winning SHOWTIME series CALIFORNICATION.

The Journey began sharing Stages with such diverse legends as Stevie Ray Vaughn, Peter Paul & Mary, BB King, Tanya Tucker, The Mavericks, Jorma Kaukenan, America, Rick Danko, Paul Butterfield, Graham Parker, Richard Thompson, Keb’ Mo’, Zac Brown and Gary US Bonds (None of whom were aware of his presence).

Guadagno has recorded 5 albums filled with Musical surprises including collaborations with Grammy Award winner Keb’ Mo’  and Dove Award Winner Steve Delopoulos.  His unique interpretations of other artist works are showcased in both his recordings and live performances where he has created reverent theatrical tributes to Van Morrison – A Marvelous Night , Tom Waits – Heart of Saturday Night, John Prine –  Souvenirs and Bob Dylan – BobFest, (‘NJ’s Hippest Musical Tradition’ – Rock Journalist Uncle Mike.)
