Redline / Bio


Wendy Sousa: Lead Vocals
Wendy Sousa has been on the music scene a few years now. Her past gigs started with a Waterbury based band called 'House Arrest", and then with a CT shoreline band called "The Violators". Wendy was later part of the formation of "REDLINE" a straight at you rock and roll band with a little country and a little funk.

Bruce Pettinicchi: Drums
Bruce's music career has spanned over five decades. His professional career started in the early 1970’s in Connecticut, playing with the bands Sextant and Stonehenge and opening for James Cotton, The Fabulous Rhinestones and James Montgomery.
In the late 1970’s, Bruce moved to California and worked in the LA music scene with the bands FBI, SASS and The MX for over ten years.
In the 1990’s Bruce returned to Connecticut and rejoined the local music scene as an independent contractor working with various local bands and artists in different musical genres. These include artists such as Nashville recording artist, Nicole Frechette, and local blues recording artist, Eran Troy Danner.
Bruce is currently involved with longtime friends in “E2, an Eagles Experience” where he plays and sings the songs of Don Henley and his bandmates, The Eagles.
Bruce has many musical influences and is a versatile drummer and vocalist, able to lock down a groove or belt out a ballad. He is extremely excited about joining the Redline line up.

Louis DiBacco: Bass, Backing Vox
Versatility is a key attribute of Lou's with his ability to play many different styles of muic-from Rock, Blues and Country, to R&B and Jazz. Originally from Pennsylvania, Lou has played weddings, corporate events, and private functions with several Connecticut based Rock and R&B bands including "Dyn-O-Myte Disco Review" "n2Wishin" and "Phil Thomas' "Solid Gold" and has opened for national acts including The Trammps and The Village people.

Wayne Ryznar: Lead Guitar
Wayne has been playing guitar for over 35 years, and has earned numerous recording credits for studio work and independent, original compositions in a variety of musical genres. He had the privilege of recording with the late Alton Ellis, and has written, recorded, and produced his own original music. Wayne is an ASCAP member, and his roots emulate from influences from the late 60’s and 70’s English rock era.

Jeff Shea: Keyboards, Vocals
Jeff’s been playing the keys since he was 4 and banging on the piano with his cap gun, and plays today with the same level of energy! But don’t let Jeff’s on-stage antics fool you – He’s a seasoned musician with thirty years of experience. Jeff started playing out in the early eighties with a group named Distant Image, followed by the all-original Necracid, Midnight Alarm, Three D, The Brightwood Rockers, Apricot Brandy, All In and The Spyders, not to mention the countless bands he’s sat in for. When Jeff’s not rocking out with Redline, you’ll find him with his wife and two sons in Torrington, where Jeff was born and bred.
