JERRY CORBETTA - Lead Vocals, Keyboard
Former lead singer, keyboardist and founder of the melodically and lyrically oriented "Green-Eyed Lady" group Sugarloaf. Jerry has garnered notice ever since 1954, when as a feisty six year-old drummer, he was dubbed "a pint-sized Gene Krupa" by the Rocky Mountain News.

Fifteen years later, already a consummate virtuoso keyboardist, singer and songwriter, he formed Sugarloaf. Besides the often heard today, much praised "Green-Eyed Lady", the group found gold with "Don't Call Us, We'll Call You" in February, 1975. Life after Sugarloaf was just as artistically lucrative, with a solo album and a co-authored for Grace Jones hit "On Your Knees". He co-produced Frankie Valli's critically acclaimed album "Heaven Above Me", then was asked to join The Four Seasons for their Twentieth Anniversary Tour.

He continued to write, perform and tour as a full member for four years, supplying much needed keyboard color to the act and working hand-in-hand in the total production with Four Seasons mentor Bob Crewe. While working with The Four Seasons, Jerry also struck gold with the Roberta Flack / Peobo Bryson number "You're Lookin' Like Love To Me".
The summer of 1991 found Jerry performing as feature guest star, with the "30 Years of Rock 'N' Roll Show", before hundreds of thousands of classic rock devotees.
