The Phil Firetog Trio, a band that mingles texture and layers to create music that draws their audience into ‘an experience’ of sound, rhythm and cadence, continues to evolve and emerge as unique among the crowd. The members of the Long Island trio, Phil Firetog (Vocalist/Guitarist), Johnny “Pots” Potocnik (Drummer) & Charles Buonasera (Bassist) have entertained the industry’s toughest critics & built a loyal fan base since the trio’s formation in 2015.

Each are seasoned, diversely talented musicians who blend their individual and distinct styles to craft a sound that is truly rare. Singer/Songwriter Phil Firetog develops music that is rich and intricate that spans the spectrum from clean to grit and ambient to rocking by mastering acoustic guitars with pedals and distorted amps. Johnny “Pots” Potocnik & Charles Buonasera fill the spaces with complex & rhythmic grooves, intriguing listeners while they connect on another level outside the lyrical storytelling.

Currently undertaking an expansion project to include new talented artists for special live performances, PFT has further enriched their signature sound. We welcome our new members to the new “Trio and Co.” and will continue a busy schedule of live performances while composing and arranging new material to be recorded and released in the near future. It’s clear that Trio and Company will continue to reshape and reinvent itself in this ever-shifting industry, while staying on the edge of new sounds and genres – never losing the essence of the core trio: ‘Rare and Transformative’.
