When they were in high school, Rich Araldi and Jim Pappas spent every moment they could find playing music.  When they weren’t playing music, they were listening to music, or talking about music.

Jim Pappas (stage name Demetrios) has enjoyed great success from being music director at the most prestigious venue in Atlantic City to his current position as music director for the legendary Smokey Robinson.

Rich Araldi’s accomplishments, while seemingly more modest, have been exactly the right fit.  A life of service through music has seen Rich, after a stint as a touring musician, as a church music director over the past three decades, a music educator, and over the past thirty years serving the senior community through music at a robust pace.  Rich’s non-profit organization “Sammy 16” provides music for those without the means to access it.

This September, for the first time in over forty years, Jim and Rich will be playing together once again.  The duo will be picking through their favorite songs from years gone by, songs that have special meaning to them, sure to be some of your favorites too.
