K-FINGERS: Founder of the band. K-Fingers grew up listening to a variety of music, from R&B, Rock and Jazz. While majoring in music theory, he began playing piano, songwriting and producing. K-Fingers has played in several cover bands and is currently producing local Hip-Hop and Neo-soul artists. He also teaches piano and music theory to students with an interest in music. Explorations is his debut CD in which he composed and produced all of the material as well as collaborated with vocalists and other musicians.
BOBBY J: Bobby J took a liking to music at a young age growing up on a farm in the Carolinas. Playing by ear, he taught himself how to play bass guitar. Bobby J played drums in his first band, Little John and the Jokes Unlimited, at the age of 16. After a few years, he learned how to play the drums and for seven years was the drummer in a band called The Band- an interesting fact --they took part in a contest to be on the Ed Sullivan Show. An interest in saxophone stayed with Bobby J, and after taking some lessons it became his instrument of choice, which he is still mastering today (alto 6 years/tenor 1 1/2 years). Bobby J has been with the Explorations Project for the past two years. His hope is to help Explorations become a successful performance band.
WIZDOM: Cecellio, AKA "Wizdom", has been playing guitar since he was seven years old. He first learned how to play from his father, older brother and musician's at his church. At the age of 15, he was offered an opportunity to play with the Fania Allstars and later attended the Conservatory of Music in Puerto Rico. When Wizdom came to Massachusetts, he played in a a top 40's band called Spoonz and has since played in many church and secular bands of all genres. He was also band director for international Bachata artist, Dominique Martaine. Some of Wizdom's main influences include Jimi Hendrix and Carlos Santana. In addition to playing with K-Fingers, Wizdom is also producing local artists, including his own CD titled Historia De Amor
