“Gerry Beaudoin: Yeah, I had a very young student named Joey Vellucci. He’s self-taught. He came to me to learn swing music and jazz. He’s a great blues player. I mean he was twenty years old and a great blues guitar player. He won a Boston Battle of the Blues Bands. I was so proud of him. Now he plays everything, jazz, soul, funk, reggae, gypsy jazs, surf music, rock ‘n’ roll, he’s gigging everywhere. I haven’t seen anybody who plays as many gigs as him.”
Ask Joey Vellucci anything...
Q: How does Gerry Beaudoin get such a nice jazz guitar tone? And who is Lumpy?
A: Gerry often soaks his fingers in olive oil and anchovies....that gives him the smooth tone with the extra salty bite on top. Lumpy is somebody we know who for 30 years has recorded the same 2 albums over and over and over again...he is also selfish and a bit of an egomaniac but he has a couple nice guitar licks that he copied off of other peoples records...
