MEET THE BAND
Dana Edelman Bio
Dana Edelman started performing on the New England circuit in the late 90‚Äôs and received much support from local roots radio stations. He relocated to New York in 2001 and was signed to Segue Records, an independent label that dissolved just before his Segue produced CD was released. In 2010, Dana released his latest full-length CD ‚ÄúBlue Roses‚ÄĚ to fine reviews and national airplay on roots-based stations. In late 2013, Dana along with his 11-year old son Jaiden, released ‚ÄúThe Massachusetts Song (You Athol)‚ÄĚ video which quickly became a regional hit (garnering over 50K Youtube views). Dana also performs with ‚ÄúHis Slammin‚Äô Band‚ÄĚ, comprised of legendary drummer Victor Jones (Stan Getz, Chaka Kahn) and the extremely tasty New York-based guitarist Chris Foley (Thisway, Arlen Roth). Dana started playing with Charlie Giordano in 2014 and The PickPocket Bluegrass was born!
Charles Giordano Bio
In addition to playing bluegrass music, Charlie Giordano builds one-of-a-kind motorcycles, keeps bonsai trees, photographs, sculpts, restores old pinball machines, makes stuff, and tries to be a decent husband and father. He is a graduate of the College of Imaging Arts & Sciences at Rochester Institute of Technology, and lives at the end of a long dirt road on Martha‚Äôs Vineyard, Mass., with his family, chickens, and a myriad of pets.
Andy Herr Bio
Andy Herr began a musical career early with training in both classical piano and traditional Irish and folk strings. He now competently performs a variety of styles and genres on many instruments, and teaches in both private and group settings on Martha’s Vineyard in MA. He splits the rest of his time between helping manage the small music store and producing music events on the island.
