Meet Aaron Norcross, Jr.
In September of 2006 Aaron Norcross, Jr. started taking lessons at a local music store in Wareham, MA. He was armed with a Red Fender Squire, the same color as Pete Townshend's guitar. Aaron wanted to be just like Pete; the windmills and jumps. The first song he learned on that Red Stratocaster was Pinball Wizard.
In 2008 he began playing local bars and clubs as a warm up act for various bands in the South Coast area. He continued to work hard through the next couple years woodshedding and gigging.
In April of 2012 Aaron went into the “Kid Charlemagne Recording Studio“ in Falmouth, MA with six songs; and over the next three months he recorded two covers and four originals including instrumental. The first song he wrote “Day to Day” received airplay in September of 2012 on “Wide World of Blues” with Peter Black on WATD Radio 95.9 FM in Marshfiedl, MA.
In March of 2013 Aaron Norcross, Jr. & The Old Dogs were born. From classic to contemporary blues and rockabilly, the band can be seen playing all over New England. Aaron continues to take lessons with Neal Vitullo, honing his skills and timing.
For the next 2 years the band plays all over Cape Cod appearing at The Melody Tent in Hyannis and other festivals around New England. In 2015 Aaron has gone back into record a new single “Rockabilly Road” at SeaSound Studio in Plymouth. Four more original songs are slated to be released in 2015
