Rolando Alvarado

Rolando Alvarado

Rolando Alvarado: Having studied music since childhood, Rolando relishes the process above all, approaching each musical context he works in with an honesty and respect for the craft. He credits much of his development in his formative years to New Jersey-based musician Bob Marriner and later to Slovenian composer Dr. Jerica Oblak, with whom he studied composition while earning his music degree from NYU.


After his time in New York, Rolando spent nearly two years in Santiago, Chile, working extensively with saxophonist/composer Diego Manuschevich and playing throughout the country. Since returning to the States, he has stayed active in the tri-state area, as a sort of musical chameleon, with his avant-metal trio El Drugstore, indie/noise/surf outfit The Vandelles and numerous rock and jazz ensembles.


You can find him on the interweb at


Gear: Rolando uses Fender Bass Guitars, String Emporium Upright Basses & Ampeg Amplifiers.
