Keyboards - BRIAN HOROHO
I've been playing keys and singing since I was 8 years old. During high school, I played in several bands, some of which got outside gigs which was a huge thrill. I got a degree in music education from West Chester University and began teaching high school choir. On my weekends i worked as a music director for several different churches. I did that for about 20 years. However, in the last 8 years I decided to get back to my "band playing roots" and became a part of CTO Grand Central. It's been very exciting to be able to play with incredible musicians on a weekly basis at weddings and corporate functions. I love it here at CTO!
Guitar - MARK CONBOY
Mark got his first electric guitar at the age of 16 and played in local bands in the Philadelphia area. He enjoys playing and singing all styles of music. Mark has been involved with writing and recording his own music and touring with original, cover and tribute bands. He currently enjoys playing guitar and singing for CTO Grand Central.
Bass - GEORGE THOMPSON
George was born in Philadelphia but has lived in South Jersey for most of his life. He started playing the bass at about age 13 and has been playing in bands ever since. George played in the junior and senior high school jazz bands and had college-level music theory classes in high school with a very hip music teacher who steered me in the right direction. After high school, he studied at the Haddonfield Music Conservatory for about a year and also took lessons from various teachers. He then started out playing in bars and restaurants at a very young age in Philadelphia and South Jersey area, playing original music and covers. George eventually landed a position with a band on Long Beach Island and played there 6 nights a week for 10 years. After that, he joined a band that did strictly private parties all over NJ, PA, DE, and NY. Then a position in Grand Central became available. George is thoroughly enjoying his time working with CTO Grand Central. He loves to be able to entertain couples and their families/friends and be a part of one of the happiest days of their lives.
