“The highest compliment that can be paid Cavanaugh is that there
are moments when his skill and enthusiasm steal focus from the
mesmerizing activity taking place below him. The same can be said

earned his stripes playing with Tower of Power, Celine Dion and
Luther Vandross, among others.”- Daily News

“John Scarpulla opened the night with a funky jam on Tenor Sax
which lead into the band chanting “Funk Filharmonik, Fu, Funk
Fil-harmonik”, that had everyone chanting along and set the momentum
of the night. Scarpulla is a long time member of the “Funk” (as
they are called by their loyal followers), but has ventured off
to play with the Tower of Power for three years during the 90’s”-Good
