After leading his own rock band as a guitarist/vocalist in elementary school, John Egizi decided to pick up the trombone in middle school without realizing that his family had been playing the instrument for generations. Shortly after switching instruments, his father introduced him to jazz music, which Egizi became increasingly obsessed with. This obsession led him to attend LACHSA (LA County High School for the Arts) where he picked up the bass (acoustic/electric), began composing/arranging music both acoustically/electronically, and continued to develope his craft as a live performer while performing at places like the Monterey, North Sea, Toronto, Montreal and Playboy jazz festivals, and at the White House with artists such as Herbie Hancock, Wynton Marsalis, Christian McBride, Maceo Parker, Bobby Watson, Antonio Hart, Dianne Reeves.
After graduating from LACHSA, Egizi was awarded a presidential scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he currently resides, studying Performance/Electronic Production & Design. He has continued to perform with a wide variety of artists (Bilal, Peter Erskine, George Garzone etc.) while working as a core music tutor for Berklee and as a copyist/arranger for Onyx Productions (Ralph Peterson Jr.). Egizi plans on releasing his debut solo project before graduating from Berklee.
