Vince Genella and his band The Business are an Instrumental trio from Northern New Jersey, consisting of Vince Genella on guitar, Roy Van Tassel on drums and Stevie Z on bass. All 3 have been in the music field for over 20 years, spread between playing in various bands, both cover and original, as well as teaching and audio recording/production. When they came together in late 2009 at Stevie’s recording studio, the chemistry was readily apparent and the band fell instantly into place.

Vince Genella & The Business have also been performing at various e

vents within the local tri-state area as well as playing trade shows and opening for artists Stu Hamm, Stryper and Larry Mitchell.

In addition, Vince hosts a few monthly events that allow his students as well as local talent to perform with him and the band, along with other professional musicians on stage. These events go under Vince Genella & Friends. Also Vince Hosts Open Mic Night with Vince Genella & The Business at Bardi’s Grill in Pequannock, NJ, every last Sunday of the month. Every Wednesday, Vince guest performs with Lou Pallo of the Les Paul Trio at Ruppert’s Restaurant.
