Lissa Heiden - Lead Vocalist Originally from Lodi, New Jersey, I realized God gave me the gift of singing around age 7. In my teens my biggest influence was Barbra Streisand. I joined up with various choral groups in school. In my 20's, my first major band was The Take 5 Band, a top 10 professional wedding band in New Jersey I stayed with for 8 years. I later moved to Florida and have been performing in various bands and doing studio work and other musical projects ever since. My taste in music of course has changed over time and now I have a love for The Blues & Classic Rock. Excited about working with The Notist band and seeing what the future has in store for all of us.
Joe Wharton - Drums, Vocals Joe started playing parties with a much older group at the age of 12. His main instrument is the drums but is accomplished on the guitar, bass, and as a vocalist. Joe's versatility includes jazz, rock, funk, and the oldies. Joe enjoys writing music and songs and doing studio work with local groups. Joe is the leader and driving force behind Notist.
Tony Dema - Keyboard, Vocals Tony brings over 50 years experience to the group. Beginning at age 7, as most young Italian boys did, he began accordion lessons until age 17. He also played 1st chair clarinet in high school orchestra. Switching to the electric piano in the early 60's he played with the “Vibra-Tones” from 1961-65. Upon entering the Navy, he played in a group entertaining the troops off the coast of Vietnam. Tony has been playing with various groups in the Tampa Bay area since relocating from Chicago in 1979. While his love is “Classic Rock N' Roll” he enjoys playing all types of music.
Joe Lupiani - Lead Guitar and Vocalist Joe Lupiani hails from Rochester, New York and has been playing all types of music for over 40 years. He has played rock, jazz, funk, country, pop and blues. He also has a great talent for writing and arranging all styles of music. Live performing is one of his true passions and the excitement of the interaction with an audience inspires his playing.
Tony Fiorello – Bass Guitar Born and raised in NYC, Tony grew up totally hooked on the rock'n'roll and doo-wop of the 50s and early 60s. When attending art school in the mid-sixties and the British invasion had changed rock music, Tony decided that he had to be a part of it and took up the bass guitar. Bass had always been his favorite instrument and really admired its role of being the backbone of the music and allowing the rest of the band the freedom to perform at their best. After spending 3 days in 1969 watching and listening to all of the great bands at Woodstock…that was it! He knew that he had to be a bass player in a band. Tony started playing professionally in 1970 and eventually worked his way into playing in a couple of the top bands in the Northeast. A couple of his former band mates who did go on to great success are guitarists Ace Frehley and Johnny Gale. He also spent a few years backing many of the "oldies" acts such as The Drifters, Bo Diddley, The Belmonts, Danny & the Juniors, plus many more. Tony moved to Tampa in 1978 for family reasons, and after a break from music for a few years began playing again with a local band playing many of the top clubs and venues in this area in addition to weddings, parties and events.
Larry Wasserberger – Tenor Sax, Alto Sax, Flute, Percussion Larry got interested in the Saxophone at early age. After graduation from the University of Tampa with a degree in Music Ed. Larry decided to join a band and try traveling on the road. That started his career in the music profession. After completing a few years on the road he settled back in Tampa and formed his own band in which they performed at many events in the Tampa Bay area. Larry has played in several bands in the Tampa and currently enjoys playing with Notist.

Corporate Function in Clearwater, FL on 03/18/2013
"We were very happy with the Notists band. They performed their music exactly as advertised and were very friendly and easy to work with. Our corporate event was casual, and they fit right in with the evening. They also were very accommodating, playing adlib music bits that fit particular funny moments that arose from time to time during our social mixer. Of course, of big importance, was that our group, which ranged in age from 20's to near retirement age, liked the broad range of tunes throughout the decades that Notists played. We would definitely hire them again."
In addition to Clearwater, Notist will also travel to Belleair Beach, Largo, Indian Rocks Beach, Dunedin, Ozona, Palm Harbor, Crystal Beach, Safety Harbor, Seminole, Oldsmar, Pinellas Park, Saint Petersburg, Bay Pines, Tarpon Springs, Tampa, Holiday, Odessa, Elfers, New Port Richey, Port Richey, Lutz, Land O Lakes, Hudson, Apollo Beach, Gibsonton, Sun City, Ruskin, Anna Maria, Brandon, Mango
