a brief history
aspiring musician since age 6 when he saw a guitarist at a
wedding, Joe Renzetti credits an
uncle who was a sculptor for inspiring him to pursue a life
in the arts. In the early '60's, he played guitar on
"The Mashed Potato," "Tallahassee Lassie,"
and "The Bristol Stomp" by fellow Philadelphians
"The Dovells." During the 60's, Joe
Renzetti began arranging and in 1974 he arranged
Barry Manilow's hit record "Mandy" for Clive Davis.
In 1978 he won an oscar for Best Adaption Score for the film
"The Buddy Holly Story." From 1978 through
1997, Joe continued to arrange and compose for over 15 motion
pictures. Several years ago he transformed his 18th
century log cabin in Upper Bucks County, Pennsylvania, into
a state-of-the-art music composing studio, where he spends
his time composing his own music.
