Born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, it all started, while still in diapers, (around 3yrs old) when my pops made me learn the accordion. See, coming from a strict Slovak background (former Czechoslovakia) I was raised with polkas and waltzes as my first major influence. So throughout my childhood I was thrown multiple instruments and told "figure it out" as there became a need for it in our ethnic, rockin' family band. (WARNING: slight use of sarcasm) As my 2 older brothers sang, danced and played their instruments ... I became sort of a guinea pig being able to pick up and figure out anything my dad threw my way. By age 6, I played the accordion, harmonica, recorder, and keyboard.
