Enrico Granafei has a long history of musical experience that encompasses both classical music and jazz. He received his degree in classical guitar from the Conservatory of l’Aquila in Italy in 1976 and his artistic career started in Rome where he soon became known in the musical community.  In 1992 Granafei received his master’s degree in Jazz Performance from the Manhattan School of Music where he was the only student of Toots Thielemans.  His love for jazz led him to New York City, where he soon started to perform in local jazz clubs including The Blue Note, Birdland,Visiones, Angry Squire, and the Bottom Line. He has performed extensively on the chromatic harmonica in the United States and continued to be a featured musician in major European Festivals, including Pori Jazz Festival (Finland), Euromeet Jazz Festival and Veneto Jazz Festival (Italy), and other jazz festivals throughout Italy, France, Spain and major clubs throughout Europe.

Granafei has been the owner and musical director of the prestigious Trumpets Jazz Club in Montclair, New Jersey since 1999.  One of the most respected players of the Chromatic Harmonica in the world today, Granafei continues to cultivate an audience for the instrument through his international performances.  As jazz pianist/historian Lewis Porter says: “This could be the start of something big for harmonica players everywhere.”

The Royal Scam is the world’s premier Steely Dan tribute band. Playing more than 40 of Steely Dan’s masterpieces, the band has helped to keep the compositions of Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, the spirit of jazz, rock, blues and the enthusiasm of fine musicianship alive in small clubs and major concert venues in the NY metropolitan area. The Royal Scam was started 21 years ago by founders Michael Caputo and Gino Amato, whose love for the music of Steely Dan has fueled the project and gained the respect and loyalty of many fans.

 

The Royal Scam has headlined and performed to sell out crowds at The Berks Jazz Festival for over 10 years, being on the same bill as artists like Dave Brubeck, George Benson, The Yellowjackets, Roberta Flack and many others. They have also performed at The Scranton Jazz Festival, Musikfest, The Bitter End, The Shell at Trump Marina, The China Club and Club Bene to name a few. The Royal Scam takes pride in performing the music of Steely Dan as close to the original recordings as possible. The band is delighted to be back at Trumpets.
