Transplanted from the woods of North Jersey to whereabouts unknown, he’s on the lam I tell ya! International Jewel Thief/Bass Player Paul Galdi now playing with Bluestime, but you didn’t hear it from me. Oh he’s played all over the area with various covers, I mean bands..jazz trios, corporate gigs, you name it, you do what you have to when you’re on the run..His latest cover is a character named Crow, you can see it here..https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCP1l8HqMiE1Y5H2J-TipfVw

Anyway, so when not playing the part of International Jewel Thief or wowing them on the stage and screen in parts unknown, he comes to Pennsylvania to play the blues.
