Bugsy Jones is a long island based Party Rock band. We focus on dance based material from the 60's 70s 80s and even some 90s. Party Rock is in the house....


Hey who knew...... at 13 years old Allen, Joe S and Lenny B. asked me to sing some songs with their band. What a blast.... We could do no wrong and what fun. As time went on and we started getting more serious. When we finally were old enough to drive, Allen and I made our way across the river and met the boys from Oakdale, Moose (Gary M.), Mike the Cap and little Bobby Jautze. What could be better, we all became best friends and the fun only intensified.  We rocked hard for a couple of years, playing pretty steady at all the local bars. Damn, life was good. Wayne, Conrad , Mario, George, Potter &  Buzzy just to name a few, were the people that makd this journey possible.​


Hailing from Miller Place, Long Island, NY. Pete Colletta has been playing the Long Island Club Circuit with various bands and solo for many years. In 2000 he formed “The Pete Colt Band”, and recruited Allen and Eddie who had just left the King Dog Band, as well as High School bandmate Tony Lombardi(now with Dead Ahead),and sax player Billy Rouge. They recorded one album of originals: “Pete Colt Rides Again”, and went on to play local club cover gigs. The band then went in separate musical directions.  Over the fifteen year period Pete played with and Co-fronted “Flashback” and “4 Hour Tour”, until reuniting in 2017 with Allen and Eddie, as first a substitute, and then a permanent member of “The Bugsy Jones Band”.


Allen has played bass in numerous bands over the years until one day joining with drummer eDDy  Mondini to form one of Long Island’s tighter and more potent rhythm sections. It’s all about the Bass…. In the pocket baby!​


Eddie was born in Brooklyn, and in the summer after 4th grade took up the trumpet. He was a natural; within two months he had learned to read music and play well enough to perform with the school band in a concert.  Eddie continued to play the trumpet through junior high, but his heart was set on the drums. Problem was that his music teacher wouldn’t let him make the switch, claiming he was too good to forsake the horn. But when Eddie moved to Long Island and Centereach, the jig was up and the gig was on. He quit the school band, bought a used drum set from a neighbor, and has been pounding out the beat ever since.​
