Meet the Band
The idea of Rando TriBe started around 2002, in Hampton Bays New York. Sal Rando was living in a small apartment overlooking the Shinecock bay and loving life. "It was a great inspiration for writing music." Soon became roommates with brother Pete, and the Rando's discovered their ability to Harmonize in a magical way. Fast forward a few years and the two brothers separated for family and life stuff. Pete stayed in NY and Sal moved to Charlotte NC. The Original salt water songs (along with many new tunes) evolved into a bubble that just needed to burst. Pete moved to NC to record the Pig Latin project with Sal. "The project was originally done as a personal deal just to preserve some tunes I had written, and wanted to hear them finished." Pete eventually moved back to NY, and is currently working on finishing his personal project. Sal put the rest of the band together, and is working on new material. The Tribe continued it's momentum selling and giving away over 1,000 plus CD's and downloads. We are looking to break into the scene in a big way.
Sal Rando - Lead Vocals, Guitar
Sal was born and raised on Long Island New York. Music is in our blood with a Julliard scholarship winning mother and father that sang DooWops all the time. Been playing in the music scene on and off since the 90's. My biggest musical influence is The Almighty God. Had He not placed me in a worship band at a local church, my music would be a hobby at best. I don't want to be labeled a Christian artist, but I will stand by my faith as a believer. My lifestyle and mission in life is to strive to be the best person I can be, and help others do the same.

Jack Sutherland - Bass
Jack Sutherland a native Charlottean, joined the band in February of 2013. Jack has been active in Charlotte's local music scene, playing bass in a variety of funk, reggae and rock bands, studio recordings, and even impersonating Alex Katunich in a short-lived Incubus cover band. In the early nineties, Jack was heavily inspired by Fishbone's bassist Norwood Fisher, whose fun and challenging style of funk, rock and ska, encouraged Jack in developing his own style.
