Sal moved to Charlottesville from the Pocono area of Pennsylvania in the late 80's. A UVA student in 1969 for only a short time, he eventually received a degree in music from the BerkLee College of Music in Boston. Often found playing solo gigs or duets with vocalists, Sal has played numerous venues across the US and in Europe. He teamed with George Melvin, Jeff Decker, and Phil Riddle in the quartet "Blue Indigo", to record an album entitled "Catwalk".
