For PJ Zitarosa it all started while studying music at The City College in NYC. PJ has studied with the best (Chris Buono, Alex Skolnick, Vic Juris) and while attending City College landed his first International tour with Geffen recording artist Danny Vaughn. PJ has performed throughout the USA, Canada, and Internationally throughout Europe with Tyketto, New Power Soul, and Brother Love, to name a few. From the beginning PJ's insatiable appetite for new musical experiences led him to explore many genre's. He drew on other idioms as well: ska, blues, electronica, ambient & chill, swing, and bebop. PJ's versatility allows him to play a wide array of genres. His appetite for mastering his instrument keeps him pushing his own boundaries. PJ resides in the N.Y.C. metropolitan area, and still continues his studies in music, and is also writing music jingles for sync free music.
In 1996 PJ set his mind on a career as a working established musician. He worked with Ska / Funk / Reggae band Hyperactive, and this experience was an important part of his growth process, in that it would expose PJ to the heavy ska / funk scene of Philadelphia PA. Soon after that he was approached by the CEO of 107 Production's, Michael Arbeeny and was offered a gig with one of his A list touring cover bands in New Jersey, "New Power Soul". This project is a 9 piece funk/r&b act . They have played along side Jon Bon Jovi, and Southside Johnny. They work consistently throughout the Tri - State area and New England, playing private functions, resorts, and club/bar dates.
