This new site is a dream come true for me - finally, an expression of my thankfulness to all the fans, followers, and friends through the years, and hopefully new friends of the future.

Here you'll find a complete and official discography of my solo work, my productions, and recordings with Ambrosia; all of my songs from A-Z with key song lyrics; photos & memorabilia from my personal archives; personal stories including my music mentors Leonard Bernstein and Quincy Jones; global events I've music-directed/produced; discovery through "E-Things: Exceptional Works, Products & People"; my works of faith in the "Light" section; and surprises you'll discover as you browse the menu bar. The homepage photo is from Kauai - it's my friend Todd Rundgren's reflecting pond that is part of his open living room. I think it perfectly captures the rockin' aloha spirit I hope this site conveys!

Please enjoy and visit often.

BEATO BAND feat. david pack & FRED BEATO

APRIL 2015 RELEASE - TWO OLD FRIENDS REUNITE BY CHANCE 40 YEARS LATER TO FULFILL A HIGH SCHOOL DREAM

The year was 1968, and high school band mates David Pack and Fred Beato had just achieved the unimaginable – their 9-piece rock and soul group The Symbols of Tyme won the entire US Battle of the Bands in Atlantic City, NJ. They were just 15 years old, and they returned to their native Torrance, CA as heroes.

The band didn't last. David went on to Ambrosia fame, and Fred founded Beato Bags Inc, the #1 US manufacturer of drum bags. But now these two old friends have come back together to complete their 1960's dream. Beato Band is their debut album, combining fresh new songs with re-imaginations of classics they listened to when they were coming up as young musicians.

Beato Band has already received great reviews, industry buzz and coverage in huge outlets like CNN TV, NBC TV, The Washington Times, and Sirius XM. [PRESS RELEASE]

Napa Crossroads: A COLLABORATION WITH 5 NAPA VALLEY VINTNER FRIENDS. EACH SONG BASED ON A MEANINGFUL LIFE EXPERIENCE.

WRITTEN AND RECORDED IN NAPA VALLEY
RELEASED MARCH 2014 ON CONCORD RECORDS

"This was my dream-to-reality project of a lifetime. It really took root after GV Vineyards owner Jeff Gargiulo asked me to write a song with him for his daughter’s winery wedding titled "April Born In May", with help from country icon Billy Dean, who had introduced us. Then the 3 of us sang it for the wedding. That song is included on this LP.

You’ll want to read the carefully-written liner notes about the evolution of each song, and review sumptuous photos of a very special moment in time that David has captured much like a “song catcher.” To sum up this labor of love: “5 Years, 5 Wineries, 14 Songs, and Way Too Much Fun.”

Guest artists include Bela Fleck, the Doors’ Ray Manzarek, Todd Rundgren, Alan Parsons, David Benoit, Robert Schwartzman, Mindi Abair, Larry Carlton, Doyle Dykes, Rick Braun, and others.”
