2017 Judges


Tim's love of music was a driving force behind the creation of Holiday Express. He learned to play piano as a child and, after college, formed Tim McLoone and his Atlantic Coast Band. However, sports also had a significant influence upon his life. As an alumnus of Harvard's All-American Track and Field Team, Tim parlayed his interest in athletics and entertaining into a career as a sports announcer. He has done broadcast work for the U.S. Olympic Trials and was part of the Emmy Award-winning broadcast team for the New York and Los Angeles Marathons. In fact, Tim put his track and field background to use when covering the New York Marathon, jogging alongside the runners as he reported on the event.

Bobby Bandiera is an American rock guitarist, singer and songwriter from New Jersey. Bandiera played rhythm guitar for Bon Jovi in live performances from 2005 until 2015 and was lead guitarist for Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes. Bandiera and his band have backed Bruce Springsteen at benefit concerts

Layonne Holmes is a vocalist who spans multiple genres. She currently leads two bands: The Motor City Revue, an 11-piece Motown soul band; and The New Standard, performing music made famous by jazz greats such as Billie Holiday, Etta  James, Sarah Vaughan and Nina Simone.  She also sings backup for the Matt O'Ree Band, and is a member of Tim McLoone & The Shirleys, as well as a volunteer with The New Jersey Shore-based non-profit, Holiday Express.  

The New York Times hailed Pat Guadagno as"A well-traveled troubadour with a remarkable repertoire" calling his performance "A musical journey, always an unpredictable ride".
Not many Folkies would be as comfortable onstage with Peter Paul & Mary or Roger McGuinn as they would with Stevie Ray Vaughn or BB King; But Pat Guadagno finds a way to contour each performance to fit every bill from America to Delbert McClinton, to Blue Oyster Cult.
