Sandy DeVito

Sandy DeVito was born in Newark, New Jersey in 1932. At the age of 11 he began teaching himself to play the guitar. Like so many players of that era, Sandy didn’t study formally in a college classroom, but rather learned and developed his art by gigging in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area. He soon became a strong disciple of New York’s incomparable Chuck Wayne.

Always the consummate accompanist, Sandy performed with Julie London, Vickie Carr, Julius LaRosa and Tony Martin to name a few. He has recorded with Les Paul, Charlie Byrd, George Barnes, and the Ray Charles Singers. He has played with Cal Collins, Bucky Pizzarelli, Joe Diorio, Ron Eschete, Mundell Lowe, Jeff Linsky, Jeff Berlin, and shared the stage with Peter Nero. His premier album entitled “Solo Guitar” was released in 1982.

One of Bob and Cindy’s closest friends, Sandy now plays and teaches at The Music Room in Escondido, CA, and very much enjoys his well deserved status as one of Southern California’s most sought-after guitarists and educators.
