In Kathleen's words:
"John is very talented in a lot of areas. I would say his brain is like a nascar engine. 'Zoom zoom' should be his modo. When it comes to gear or anything to do with engineering, he gets right into it and is passionate about solving equations. His voice is kind of like the glue in our trio. You can always hear the velvet he brings to the sound. His wife and his guitar are the two loves of his life. :) "

In Eileen's words:
"John is a fireball of talent, passion and energy. He is extremely gifted. Musically, but also intellectually, he is just brimming with ideas all the time. He always has some new random fact or piece of trivia to tell us. I love how he gets so into the music when we are performing onstage, and always wants to give it 150%. Besides the music, John is an avid reader, and "gets" things really quickly. He is very honest, and is open enough that you can have very deep and meaningful conversations with him. He is an awesome band-mate and older brother. :)"
