Pat Bianchi
Pat Bianchi is considered by legendary jazz organists Joey DeFrancesco and Lonnie Smith to be an upcoming star in the jazz organ world, making his mark in the United States and Europe and becoming widely recognized.
 
Born in Rochester NY, Pat began playing music by ear at the age of 6 on his first instrument, a small combo organ. At age 7 his studies continued in classical piano. From a musical family, he was being educated by both grandfathers and his father in playing basic jazz styles, big band and dance band music as well. Pat was able to absorb a large amount of musical knowledge within a short period of time and was out playing professionally by the age of 12. In his early teens, Pat's focus shifted towards the piano.
 
He enrolled in the Eastman School of Music community education division for classical piano and music theory studies. At the same time he continued to study jazz piano on his own while performing in various student jazz ensembles. Pat also played acoustic and electric bass in various school bands for a short time. Pat's interest shifted to jazz organ at age 16 after receiving Joey DeFrancesco's "Live at the Five Spot" record as a gift. Soon after, he acquired his first Hammond Organ.
 
There began his exploration of the Jazz Hammond world. From 1994-1998, Pat was a student at Berklee College of Music where he studied with an impressive list of jazz educators, receiving his bachelors degree in music performance in 1998. Upon graduating from Berklee, he relocated to Denver, Colorado to perform in Denver's historic jazz club El Chapultepec. It was at this club where Pat began building his impressive resume while working with the many musical legends showcased at the club. In October 2002, Pat moved to NYC for a short time, and returned to Denver in 2003.
