Nino Toscano

I play Jazzy instrumentals, Jazz standards, R&B, Pop, Latin and more. I use a guitar Synthesizer, it adds synth sound to my Electric Guitar. I use Backing tracks made by musician friends and I, so I have a FULL band sound.

My Bio

I was born in Catania, Italy. I started to play guitar at age15. In 1974 I got offered a gig in Tokyo. I took it! I was playing with a seven pieces band named Casanova Sette.
   After Japan we went to Guam for six months. Then we toured the USA and Canada. Back in Japan, here in ‘76 the band broke up.
   I went back to Guam playing with the Roberto Fracassini’s Band.
In 1980 I moved to Honolulu, Hawaii. Here I played with Blind Date a rock/country/pop band. We started as a trio, we ended up as a quintet. In ’85 the band moved to Nevada. We played all over the state, sometimes we stretched to Oregon and Washington State.
   The group broke up in ’86 and I moved to Portland, Oregon. Here I played with a funk/ pop/dance band named The Toys. We played in the most reputable clubs and hotels in the area.
But Hawaii was calling again. I moved to Maui in March 1989. The best move that I’ve made! Ever!
Here, I’m living happily married, with Harumi, and raising a child, Aja.
Still playing and living to the fullest.
   As a musician, I must thank all the great player that I’ve played with, that knowingly or unknowingly taught me a lot about music and life in general.
