THE PETER GUSMANO PROJECT
PGP (The Peter Gusmano Project) is a cutting edge rock 'n' roll trio delivering a blistering mix of rock guitar instrumental compositions and the best classic rock 'n' roll covers from the '70s and beyond. Started by Peter Gusmano, the group is a live project that was developed to promote Guitar for a Cure, a 501(c3) official charity (also formed by Gusmano). 100% of all CD sales are donated to Project A.L.S., and the project has thus far raised over $20,000 for A.L.S. research. Guitar for a Cure has been named as a top independent fundraiser for the charity for the last three years.
PGP, featuring Peter Gusmano on guitars and vocals, Ethan Meixsell on bass and vocals, and Ricky Martinez on drums and vocals, delivers a high-energy rock performance blending the styles of Zeppelin, VH, Pink Floyd, Sabbath, Aerosmith, and Thin Lizzy. The trio has been featured on the Fox 5 Morning show, NBC's Non Stop, Newsday, Ad Age, and Wes Houston's Presents, and it performs regularly around the Tri-State area at venues such as Crash Mansion, Highline Ballroom, and other Long Island music clubs.

Fifth of Bourbon's influences include Hendrix, Muddy Waters, Led Zeppelin, Allman Brothers, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Janice Joplin, and Howlin' Wolf, to name a few.
