I spent many years as a songwriter and musician. I started playing the piano at nine years old and then to accordion since my father Aldo use to play accordion as was a child. There was also a time in 4th grade Catholic school that one of the 12 pupils in my classroom stood up in front of the class and played his accordion.

Born in the Bronx
I was born at Westchester Hospital in Bronx, New York to Aldo Enzo Castello and Victoria Rose Iasoni who were both Italian and also lived in Bronx with many other family members.

If you have watched the movie Bronx Tale, that pretty much explains why my father wanted us out of the area. As much as they loved Arthur Avenue and the abundance of family in the area, we were happy to be playing on the sunny beaches of Palm Beach County.
