    Biography :

    Peter Moscatiello  have been in and around the music since 1958. While attending P.S. 15 in Jersey City, New Jersey, he met Dennis Skipper (Skip), through his friend Louis Contey. Skip was into vocal harmony and was teaching Louis and his brother Jerome how to harmonize. They asked Peter if he wanted to sing and as Skip taught him the basics, he became hooked. But the driving force, the thing that lit the fire under him was hearing the song that launched Laurie records: "I Wonder Why" by Dion and the Belmonts.
