About King Teddy
About Dan Rivizzigno
Dan Rivizzigno, the hot-blooded Italian of the group, is actually merely warm-blooded. He is frequently seen smiling and socializing, but has little patience for gabby drunks or uncreative hecklers. He plays with a joyous abandon that sometimes causes the strings of his guitar to break, but will then crush those feelings of joy in order to deftly re-string his instrument, unfettered by what he mysteriously refers to as his "emotional human side."

Instruments: 1974 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe guitar, Roland JC-75

Musical Influences: The Beatles, pop music from the 30's, 40's, 50's, and 60's, many rock bands from the late 60's and early 70's, anything that has a good melody

Other Bands: Afterglow

Interests and Hobbies: The Orioles, reading just about anything, traveling, the beaches from North Carolina and farther south, watching my son play baseball, science fiction both good and bad

Most Embarrassing Gig Moment: When half the band started one song and the other half started a different, yet similar song.  Who was responsible for the miscommunication isn't important.
