The Official Home Page of Phil Ragno


My earliest memory of music was my Grandpa singing opera. He was a semi pro tenor back in Italy but gave it up when he immigrated to become a bootlegger.

I took up the violin at the age of 8. Peer pressure led me to the guitar by 13.

(Growing up in urban Jersey, it was cooler to be playing guitar then fiddling around.)

My playing consists of  long legato lines and funky/chunky rhythm. I guess Im a blues man at heart. I like playing electric and acoustic and have great stage gear for both. Good transportation, dedication, add a dose of old school loyalty and it pretty much tells my story.
