Playing throughout the east coast and extensively in this area for more than 25 years, Ed has enjoyed considerable time in numerous blues, jazz, funk, rock, and country swing bands. He’s been influenced not only by jazz guitarists such as Pat Martino, Wes Montgomery, and George Benson, but also by many great non-guitar giants such as Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane and Wayne Shorter. On the local scene, Ed currently plays solo and with his own bands, the Ed Chervansky Trio and Jazz Dreams and has played with such standout players as Bobby Buster, Eddie Buster, Jesse "Wild Bill" Austin and the Penfield Reefers.

JD is currently playing as a solo-acoustic act, as well as being bandleader of the Penfield Reefers band. During the past 20 years, he has lived and performed in the Chesapeake Bay area and Nashville before returning to his home state of Connecticut. During that time, he’s had the opportunity to play with members of the Kenny Rogers band, Kenny Chesney band and has written songs that were picked up by Confederate Railroad and Ken Mellons. He even shared the stage with bluegrass legend, Bill Harrell & the Virginians. JD has also recorded several of his own CD’s that have received some airplay on the radio.
