About Me

A long time ago in a hospital that no longer exists, a wonderful woman gave birth to her fourth and final child. She and her then-husband resisted the urge to drown the child, or to sell him to gypsies. His childhood misadventures proving nonfatal, he grew and learned to play the guitar. Much later, he started to write songs, and when he sang them, people didn't throw him out the door, so it encouraged him to keep doing it!

Once he realized that he could actually get paid for singing and playing, the child was forever ruined for honest work.....

John Friday, the Tropical Balladeer, is a singer/songwriter originally from Maryland, now living in Florida. After a back-breaking (literally) Army career, John settled in Virginia and, later, in the Sunshine State where he takes audiences on a musical journey “down island,” with a combination of rock, folk, country, reggae, and island styles.

An eclectic set of interests led John through the gamut of college majors, including biology; education; engineering; mathematics; business ("I'd always made

fun of business majors, and suddenly I was one!"); computer science; classics (the most useful part of a classics degree is that you can say "Do you want fries

with that?" in Latin!); and finally, one that combined many of John's interests, History. It took a mere twenty years to complete his baccalaureate, as things like raising children and going to war kept him busy. John's love of History is readily evident, as he will discuss historical events at the drop of a fin-topped hat.

John got his first guitar when he was 13, after attempts at learning the piano and the clarinet were less than successful. For years, John was never far from that guitar. He took it backpacking in the White Mountains of New Hampshire; while working on a crabber in Chesapeake Bay; even while skiing in Maine & Colorado. He still has that guitar, although his collection has grown somewhat over the years.

When it came time to "get a grown-up job," John put away childhood dreams and joined the Army. A series of injuries led to a medical discharge after thirteen years of service. Moving back to the Mid-Atlantic region, John shortly realized that (1) he'd never really grown up and never would, and (2) his childhood dreams of making music were still powerful. Eventually, those dreams led to a southward move.

"Dreams...don't leave childhood without them!"

About Me

Singer/songwriter Joe Bonfiglio (Joe B.) has been performing since his youth. He writes songs about his life experiences, but he also delves into literature, new and old, and film, television, and the news for his inspiration. His flatpicking style is unique, something he developed in his earliest days of playing solo, and he incorporates a percussive quality as well.

In his first incarnation, he sang, played guitar, and wrote songs for the group The DuCaines, who recorded a single for Atlantic Records.

In his late teens, he performed on the folk circuit, but also played with The Providence River Swimming Team (a jug band), touring the east coast and opening for acts including Sea Train, Laura Nyro, Boz Scaggs, and Paul Geremia.

When the band members parted ways, he returned to his career as a folk singer/songwriter, and recorded a demo album for RCA records while playing various NY and college venues like My Father’s Place and Stephen Talkhouse, opening for acts including Jonathan Edwards, Gordon Lightfoot, the Chambers Brothers, Livingston Taylor, Burt Summer, the Left Banke, and Kate and Alex Taylor

He continued playing solo for a number of years, performing in a variety of small New England venues, colleges, and corporate benefits. But from 1977 until 1990, he took a hiatus to leave New York and the music business to live in the Vermont countryside, where he raised two wonderful children and worked as an educator and a scholarly writer. But he never stopped playing. He also travelled extensively, living for periods of time in Washington, D.C.; Normal, Illinois; and St. Andrews, Scotland. While living in Scotland, he was a site manager for the STANZA Poetry Festival, one of the biggest such festivals in the world, and it was there that his desire to shift gears from prose to poetry was rekindled. Returning to songwriting was a natural progression.

He re-entered the music business slowly at first, playing a few gigs a year and rebuilding his performance chops. In 2009, he relocated from Vermont to Florida. He performs as a solo artist and since that time has played a variety of Florida and New England venues, festivals, and corporate parties. 

His song "Hurricane" was included on the Noise Ordinance 3 compilation CD, and he is also being included on Noise Ordinance 4 with his song “Living All Alone with Just Myself.” In 2014, he released the CD "Third Time's the Charm," and in 2016 he released the CD "Sidewalk Sidestep.  His single "Back to Mexico" has been consistently in the Trop Rock Top 40.

About Me

Besides listening to trop rock music and drinking a margarita or two, I enjoy attending seasonal baseball games, especially the NL 2011 World Series Championship CARDINALS.

I attend several Buffett concerts a year plus other parrothead functions. I'm currently a member of the Riverbend Parrot Heads of Brighton, IL, and the St. Louis Chapter Parrot Heads.

Looking to a great year 2012, reaching out to help local charities with my fellow Parrot Heads.

Spare time is spent working on various events for Silver Gate Yacht Club (currently chairing the committee for the annual Schooner Cup charity regatta to benefit Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society and Secretary for the Board of Directors). I am also one of the Aries Angels - we host house concerts, provide marketing materials for TropRock musicians and do what we can to find work for a number of TropRock musicians.
