Hi, my name is Sandy Gennaro.
During my 50-year career in the music industry, I was honored to tour the globe and record with world renowned artists such as Cyndi Lauper, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Bo Diddley, Johnny Winter, The Monkees, Joe Lynn Turner, Michael Bolton, Benny Mardones, Craaft, The Mamas and Papas and Jon Paris.
I have taught over 25,000 students through my involvement at The Collective in NYC, where I inaugurated the Music Business program. I have also been a counselor at the Rock and Roll Fantasy Camps.
My time teaching in the classroom is what opened my eyes to the idea that there were a few vital ingredients that enabled me to overcome and thrive as a performer and in my personal life. Using this knowledge and experience, I created my keynote presentation about beating the odds.
During my time as a keynote speaker, I’ve became known as “The Rock and Roll Thought Leader” and have spoken to companies and organizations such as FedEx, Belmont University, Pacific Hotel Management LLC, Sam Ash Corp., The U.S. Space and Rocket Center, The Collective NYC, The School of Rock and many others.
