John Goroly – Trumpet

John has been playing trumpet since the third grade. He has worked with local orchestra, swing and wedding bands. After extensively checking out the local music scene, he formed Down and Dirty in 1997.

Over the years, some of Long Island’s best musicians have worked with the band. Being an educated marketing specialist has come in handy with running and promoting the band. He has lived in the Long Island community all his life and has a wonderful family.


Mike Pasco – Guitar & Vocals

Mike began his proffessional career with pop-rockers The Move, recording and playing clubs throughout the tri-state area. After making the finals of the Kiss FM-Budweiser Showdown and a spot on Star Search, the band
signed with Cheryl records.

Eventually Mike left to pursue a solo career writing, producing and recording his own material.

In the nineties, Mike once again hit the road; this time with rockers Talon recording and gigging all over the metropolitan area with a noteable performance at New Yorks China Club.

After several years of gigging the Long Island circuit with The Nothin Fancy Rockhouse, Little Rock & Cover Up, Mike finally found his home in Down & Dirty; where his funky guitar playing and gritty vocals are a perfect compliment.
