Checkmate to a Music Mate
"Her Craigslist ad was pretty ridiculous," admits the soft-spoken and handsome Catalano. "You can tell she had training. She didn't write me back at first, so I wrote her again with more info. I included that I was in jazz band in high school." Catalano got Spina's attention with the words "jazz band."
"I knew that to be in jazz band you had to have talent," Spina says. "You have to be able to read music and play with a group of people." After a screening at the bar Spina worked at, the two got to work practicing. "I actually felt a really good vibe right away, just with the music we were discussing that we both liked," she says.
