After 30 years in the music industry, both as a performer and as a record producer, my wife and I decided to move from South Florida to Vermont to enjoy life in the most beautiful, natural and progressive state in the union. My first life as a musician encompassed playing keyboards with such greats as Eric Clapton, Procol Harum, Whitesnake and many other greats such as Jimmy Hendrix, B.B. King and too many top hits as a session musician to even recall. Eventually I moved into record production, producing hits for Peter Frampton, Ted Nugent, The Romantics (including the classic "What I Like About You" and the Grammy nominated album "1916" for the "loudest" band in the world, Motorhead.
After a couple of years in Vermont, we opened a cafe in Newfane, Vermont called the Newfane Cafe and Creamery where I first began to make and sell gelato. We sold our share of the cafe after about a year but the gelato took on a life of its own and over the last few years went from a dipping cabinet in Newfane, Vermont to a production facility in Brattleboro, Vermont and an emphasis on wholesale pints and restaurant suppliers. I put the same dedication and art into my gelato as I did as a world class musician. I believe you can taste that difference in our product, a genuine Vermont essence of whole ingredients, fresh organic fruits and pure Vermont grass fed milk. I'm enjoying my second act as an artisan gelato maker as much as my first act as a rock'n'roller and I hope you all will come along with me on this second wild ride.
