Duo Joe Cardillo and Kenny Eng perform a mix of rock, blues, pop, top 40, R&B, Motown, hip-hop, cover songs, and everything in-between. Joe Cardillo studied saxophone under the Michael Monaghan (Boston Pops saxophonist) and graduated with a B.A. in Musical Performance and Music Education.

Eng is a self-taught guitarist. “I took piano early on,” he says, “but basically picked up the guitar by ear. When I discovered that I could figure out songs on the radio by ear very quickly, I thought I might try my luck as a guitar player.”
