Born and raised in the Boston area, AJ has been recording, performing, and teaching for the past 20 years. After graduating from Musician’s Institute and teaching there, he has played with some of the best guitar players out there.

AJ has been holding down the low end for Gary Hoey since 2013. Recently, they opened for Beth Hart on her European Fire on the Floor Tour. Some other highlights have been playing the Rock Legend’s Cruise for three years in a row, Joe Bonamassa’s “Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea” cruise, and Yngwie Malmsteen’s “Guitar Gods” tour. This year will mark Gary’s 21st Anniversary of his Ho Ho Hoey Christmas show. AJ will be recording new material with Gary later this year.

Throughout his career, AJ has played with Popa Chubby, Johnny A., Entrain, James Montgomery, and Albert Cummings.

While not on tour, AJ has been teaching bass, guitar, and ukulele online and at his own home studio “Blackwater Music.”
