The Band

Paul Cotruvo (Beau Jangle) - Guitar/Lead Vocals

Since that time, he went on a quest of finding the perfect Band to join and fulfill his jangly need. The journey took him down many roads. Since the late 70's, Paul was a part of a very popular Country Rock Band "Sunstorm", a fun cover Band, "Straight Ahead" and currently an active member of another popular Band, "Cover2Cover". Also been a member of "Dream Posse" and the blues Band, "Tari LaCourt and the TLC Band". Also enjoys performing as a solo act, and as a duo, "Cover Story"
As a huge fan of the great Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and all things jangly, Paul finally found the perfect Band to get his jangle on.
