A HUGE welcome to the one and only Cathy Belfiore! A lifelong musician, Cathy began her music career at a young age performing with her sisters as a family group: The Belfiore Sisters. Cathy and her sisters covered a lot of ground performing regularly at The Winesburg Inn and several area festivals, clubs and organizations. They landed a spot as regular artists on "The Gene Carroll Show" out of WEWS Cleveland and spent several years performing with Live Shows at Kings Island, Darien Lake, Geauga Lake, Cedar Point and The Mutton Hollow Theater in Branson, MO.
Cathy has been playing the guitar since age 8 and has taught private lessons for over 30 years. Cathy is very active leading contemporary worship at her local church and is also very passionate about building and developing youth worship bands. She is very proud of her past and present guitar students and youth worship team members, many of whom have gone on to study music and play professionally.
In addition to Sandtown, Cathy performs with Walt Sanders and the Cadillac Band and can be seen doing an occasional duo or trio gig at one of the local wineries or clubs and festivals around the area. She has subbed as the Christie McVie part for Rumours and was also involved in the early stages with Dave James and the Alien Blues Project.
Cathy holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communications with a minor in Music Performance and a Masters in College Student Personnel. Cathy works full time for Oberlin College and resides in Bellevue, Ohio with her (3) multi-talented boys.
SandTown is proud to announce the addition of new guitarist and vocalist, Brian Papazian to the band. Having grown up in a musical family, Brian began playing music at an early age and has honed his skills on stages along the Erie Shores in various bands and projects since he was a teenager. His talent is unmistakable to anyone having the privilege to see him perform. Brian's style is an eclectic mix of Blues, Rock, Country, Americana, Folk, & Delta. He currently plays on the Worship Team at The Chapel in Huron, OH, and most recently completed a CD of Original Music entitled "Reborn."
