Steve Laudicina was born and raised in Long Island, New York. He was first introduced to the blues at age seven when his parents brought him to an Eric Clapton and Jimmie Vaughan concert. Both fascinated and inspired, he began taking guitar lessons with New York City jazz guitarist Nick Russo, and has not put down the guitar since.
At age fourteen, Steve moved to South Florida where he began playing shows with local punk and metal bands and did a small amount of traveling. At age eighteen he occasionally played with the Gypsy Blue Acoustic Revue where he met Jp Soars, and decided he wanted to play the blues full time.
Steve then formed local blues band, Bobby and the Renegades, where he made a name for himself locally. He was able to hone his chops with influences such as: T-Bone Walker, Otis Rush, Tiny Grimes, Freddie King, Rick Holmstrom, and Magic Sam. He also began playing with South Florida jump blues band, The Regulators, and toured North America with The Rockin’ Jake Band.
Steve currently plays with JP Soars and the Red Hots, where he continues to learn and grow with his bandmates.
