Fuoco/Folger/Castaldi Trio @ BOP STOP

The BOP STOP is excited to welcome back Anthony Fuoco, Garrett Folger, and Carmen Castaldi for a night of original compositions as well as some standards! Tickets to attend this event in person are $20 each. This event will also be livestreamed on BOP STOP's Facebook page at showtime. Accessing the stream is free but donations are encouraged and directly support the band.


Anthony Fuoco’s musical interests are in improvisation, composition, and classical piano repertoire. He frequently performs as a member of groups such as the Pulse Quartet (with Brad Wagner, Aidan Plank, and Dustin May), the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra, and the Wedmedyk/Fuoco duo. In 2020, he and William Wedmedyk released their recording Finding Home, featuring their compositions and improvisations. In 2019, his performance with Joe Lovano at the BopStop was recorded and featured on the NPR program Jazz Night in America. He also has extensive experience performing the classical piano duo repertoire with his wife, Christine Fuoco. He teaches piano, jazz, and pedagogy at Baldwin Wallace University. Anthony is a graduate of the University of Illinois.

Garrett Folger is a trumpeter and composer originally from New York State. A graduate of Baldwin Wallace Conservatory, Garrett is a teacher and regular performer with big bands and small groups throughout Northeast Ohio.

A gifted jazz drummer, Cleveland's Carmen Castaldi emerged in the 1970s, and spent decades as a highly sought-after sideman, working on the West Coast with artists like longtime associate Joe Lovano, Frank Strazzeri, and Keely Smith. In 2019, he paired with Lovano and pianist Marilyn Crispell for Trio Tapestry. Raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Castaldi started playing jazz drums in his youth. After high school, he honed his skills at Boston's Berklee School of Music, where he attended alongside fellow Cleveland native, saxophonist Joe Lovano. There he studied with noted performer/instructors Joe Hunt, Alan Dawson, and Ed Bobick. Graduating in 1974, he moved to Las Vegas and spent much of the next decade working with artists like Keely Smith, Don Rickles, and Sonny Stitt. Relocating to Los Angeles, he continued to find performance opportunities, working with a bevy of West Coast luminaries including Teddy Edwards, Bill Perkins, Frank Strazzeri, and Herb Jeffries. During this period, he was also a member of the Bob Gail Orchestra.
