Dennis DelGaudio - Guitar/Vocal

Ramsey Norman - Drums/Vocal

Only in New York City would you find a band steeped in classic country music with an Italian last name!  However, just like the city (and country) they call home, their music is more than just Country. It is a melting pot of Country, Rock-n-Roll and Folk, with a dash of pop sensibility and a pinch of jazz grooviness.  Uniquely American.  And they've only just begun...


Dennis DelGaudio - Guitar/Vocal

Guitarist/singer/songwriter Dennis DelGaudio is a native New Yorker, born and raised on Long Island, who started playing guitar at age 13, graduated Hofstra University with a BA in Music, and by the age of 20 was a full-time, working musician.

After a few years spent fronting his own band as well as guesting with the likes of the Turtles and Peter Noone, Dennis became the lead guitarist for the entire run of the Broadway smash hit "Movin’ Out” (2002-2005).  During that time, he had written songs featured in two independent films, “Class of ’83”, released in the Fall of 2004, and “Pope Dreams”, released in the Fall of 2005.  After “Movin’ Out” closed on Broadway, Dennis became the Music Director for the limited engagement/West End production of the show in the spring of 2006.  Upon returning from London, Dennis worked with various jingle houses in New York City and co-wrote/performed the music for two CNBC shows, “The Big Idea with Donny Duetsch” and “Conversations”.

In 2008, he traveled to Afghanistan to perform for troops and by July of that year, was asked to join the band for Billy Joel’s historic Last Play at Shea concerts.  Those two shows led to Dennis' becoming a touring member of Billy Joel’s band for Billy and Elton’s Face-to-Face Tour in 2009.  Most recently, you can catch him performing with The Lords of 52nd St. (members of Billy Joel's original band - Liberty DeVitto, Richie Cannata and Russell Javors) and 60's British Invasion artist, Billy J. Kramer.

His love of classic country music led him to forming Buck Linguini in late 2018.  Dennis' heart and soul rests with his new band. He currently lives on the North Shore of Long Island.

Steve Capecci - Bass

Steve Capecci began his musical career after graduating Berklee College of Music in 2008. Known for his dedication to playing authentic feels and his ability to establish parts that speak to the song, Steve has been a live bassist for singer-songwriters including Erin Barra, Jeffrey Gaines, Madi Diaz, and more. Steve has developed a reputation both as a forward thinking artist and as a throwback fundamentalist, recreating vintage feels and tones, while also pushing the envelope and developing his own voice. Working with Producer Victor “Ticklah” Axelrod (Amy Winehouse, Dub Side of the Moon), he contributed to a single for Rockstar Games’ “LA Noir” soundtrack, a reggae-cumbia infused remix of “Stone Cold Dead In The Market” by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Jordan, later released on 45 on the Swing-A-Ling label with legendary Dancehall toaster Dennis Alcapone.


Steve has done extensive work in traditional Jamaican roots genres such as Reggae, Rocksteady, Rub-A-Dub, and Ska. Working with producer Brett Tubin of Channel Tubes, he recorded and executive-produced Earl Zero’s “None Shall Escape The Judgement”, originally recorded by Earl in the early 70’s, and later associate-produced and played bass on the full length Uzimon released “Showdown” in 2012. Steve has worked both live and in the studio with countless 70’s and 80’s Jamaican recording artists including Sugar Minott, Johnny Osbourne, Cornel Campbell, Michael Palmer, Luciano, Screechy Dan, and others.  For nearly a decade, Steve has been the bassist in Full Watts Band, a 10-piece band specializing in recreating Rocksteady Music from late 60’s Jamaica. As the go-to bassist for saxophonist Anant Pradhan (The Skatalites), Steve has worked with Lester Sterling, one of the originators of Ska music in the late 50’s and early 60’s of Jamaica. 


Even though he has developed a reputation for warm tones, vintage bass lines, and “pocket playing”, Steve can been heard playing and touring extensively with 90’s “Regga-core” outfit The Pilfers. Described as a truly versatile player, he takes great pride in capturing the specific elements and tones that capture any given genre or style. Steve currently resides in Northern New Jersey with his wife and son.
