Boogie Du jour, is Jeff Howell's newest venture forward; featuring music from his past, and paying homage to the 3 national acts he has played in over the past 35 years. Taking into consideration how bands of that level motivate their audiences, Jeff applies the same elements in any of his own bands. Nothing less than quality-controlled and true to form. This music will be played with the energy and subtleties it deserves. No filler‚ all killer. Brand new material, fresh off the grill, will also be incorporated.



Jeff began his music career as bass player/vocalist touring the east coast with popular, rock bands. Excelling to the ranks of nationals, after meeting Blues Hall of Famer, Kim Simmonds, Savoy Brown, along with Dave Walker, Savoy Brown vocalist. This lead him to meeting his mate, Roger Earl, of Foghat; with whom he travelled and performed all over the world. He also toured and performed with southern rock legends, The Outlaws, and recorded three of their CD’s. In 2010 and 2015, Jeff returned to Foghat, filling in for long-time bassist while on medical leave. During that time, he recorded Foghat’s blues cd, Last Train Home. It ranked #8 on the top 30 Releases of 2010, on Classic Rock Revisited. Along on this ride is vocalist/slide & electric guitarist Greg "Mize" Meisner; on lead guitar & vocals, Richie Roccisano and Jeff Rembecki on drums. All three bring their own unique strengths and experience to round out this lineup.

 


Mize began playing music when his fifth grade teacher taught him four chords on guitar that changed his life. It wasn't long after high school that he was on the road, fronting bands in rock clubs and college campuses. He rocked his hometown of Binghamton, NY for many years, until he became creatively exhausted and relocated to the Eastern shore of Maryland. It was there he realized the power of simplicity and took his music back to its roots. He performed solo throughout the east coast several years, before returning home and reconnecting with Tears current drummer, Jeff Rembecki. Late 2017, the two were joined on stage, one night, by ‚"special guest‚" Jeff Howell, to jam a classic Foghat version of Willy Dixon's, "Just Wanna Make Love to You". The seed was planted.

 


Richie Roccisano, on lead guitar and vocals, is a multi-talented individual. He was nearly born with a guitar in his hand, playing since the young age of 4. Richie brings a great ear and great touch to the band. He is also a very accomplished producer and recording engineer/owner of Big Time Music studio, in Interlaken, NY; where he also serves as mayor. He has worked with and recorded hundreds of bands and artists over the past decade, including, Jason Newsted (Metallica), Joe Bouchard (Blue Oyster Cult), Bob Kulick (Kiss), Rob Canavino (Overkill), as well as Jeff’ Howell's upcoming cd, Boogie Du jour.


Drummer Jeff Rembecki hails from upstate New York and is a veteran of the Northeast music scene. Touring the Northeast with his earlier bands Kuda and 11th Hour Jeff honed his skills as a solid foundation drummer who realizes where the pocket is. Most recently Jeff has applied his skills in the Las Vegas music scene working with members of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Quiet Riot, Stryper and Las Vegas blues legend Stoney Curtis among others. Jeff is now back in his original stomping grounds and eager to serve up a helping of Boogie Du jour! Bon Appetit.
