Sneak Peek at Damn The Torpedoes
Meet the Band
Rich Kubicz, who plays the role of Tom Petty, has been playing the guitar and singing since his early teens. By 2007, so many people had told him that he looked and sounded like Tom Petty that he decided to put together Damn The Torpedoes as a tribute to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. His goal was to play all of Petty’s studio hits, with live versions and some deep cuts to create the illusion of a Tom Petty concert performance.
Lee Boice plays the role of lead guitarist Mike Campbell. Boice, a well-established guitarist from New York City, has played all over America and Europe. Besides being known for his exciting live performances, Lee is also a music producer and writer and is at home in the studio as well as on stage. With experience in various styles of music including Funk, Rock, Blues, and World Music, Lee has mastered many guitar styles and techniques.
Gary Castelluccio plays the roles of Benmont Tench and Scott Thurston on keyboards, piano, guitar, harmonica, and backing vocals. Castelluccio has been performing since he was 13, beginning on guitar and eventually adding keyboards and harmonica. Over the years, he has played in cover bands, original projects, and studio sessions. His experience and versatility has helped him to become a consummate side man adding support and color to the bands he works with.
Jon Provan plays both Ron Blair and Howie Epstein, on bass guitar and backing vocals. Provan caught the music bug young, playing and singing in Rock bands, a cappella groups, sax quartets, theatre pits, recording studios and more. He’s also laid down his bass groove for many Indie and original bands. When not on stage with Damn The Torpedoes, Provan is the musical director at a theater, a solo artist, and a theatrical performer.
Ross Kantor plays Stan Lynch and Steve Ferrone on drums and percussion, with backing vocals. Kantor is the quintessential percussionist and the driving force behind Damn The Torpedoes’ tight rhythm section. His versatility allows him to play with the finesse of Stan Lynch and the power of Steve Ferrone, while also adding polished vocals to an already very melodic harmony section. When Kantor isn’t playing with Damn The Torpedoes, he is an in-demand drummer for live events, Indie bands and studio sessions.
