Rob Murphy- bass, backing vocals
Got a little boom in your big truck? Are you gonna open up the doors and turn it up? Maybe stomp your boots in the New England mud? We’re gonna watch you fall in love...with the Stefanie Jasmine band!
To help with that, Rob Murphy brings a wealth of diversity - in part, age diversity - and music diversity to the band with the influence of multiple styles playing Metal, Rock, Alternative, Pop, Country, R&B Music in many successful Wedding, Corporate Event and Club bands such as Syrinx, Escape, DZ, Skinny Dog, Dick n Jane, Hot Mess, Whiskey Wild and now Stefanie Jasmine Band.
It isn’t all about the bass as he also leads vocals on some of the hottest country songs out there and puts the Red in Red Bull with his energy on the stage. Rob enjoys reading Nicolas Sparks novels, watching I Love Lucy re-runs, long walks on the beach, an umbrella in is his Shirley Temple and a 5 string Buckeye Burl Sadowsky Bass. He also fancies a girl in a truck with a red sundress with an ice cold beer pressed against her lips begging for another kiss.
Erin Murphy-Dunn- guitar, backing vocals
Erin brings her guitar playing talents, songwriting experience, vocal support, and harmonies to Stefanie Jasmine's band.
Having been in many bands over the years, including fronting her own original band, she is very much at home on stage. She also brings industry knowledge to the table as she holds certificates in music business and music production from the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
When not performing with Stefanie and the band, Erin can likely be found writing and recording music in her home studio. (Or, as a self proclaimed 'bird nerd', chasing squirrels away from her bird feeders!)
John Coviello- drums
John has been playing drums since the age of 8. Growing up, John involved himself in any musical situation he could find; school bands, jazz bands, percussion ensembles, theater pit bands, pop bands and the all-important Garage Rock Bands.
At age 18, John found a job managing the legendary Jack’s Drum Shop on Boylston Street and immersed himself in the burgeoning Boston Music scene of the 80’s and 90’s.
Working steadily in many different bands, which included a stint with national act Eddie Money, John earned a position at Vater Percussion (a worldwide manufacturer of drumsticks) and also the opportunity to work with The Stefanie Jasmine Band. This band has become John’s main musical focus, and he looks forward to many years of boot-stompin’, ass-kickin’, booty-shakin’ music with Stefanie and the band.
Rob Panarelli- lead guitar
Rob adds his smoking lead guitar riffs to SJB, and also occasional Oooh and Aaah background vocals can be heard.
His previous bands include: Acoustic trio The Loco Locals , Whiskey Wild , The Shanna Jackman Band
Rob also has many years of experience teaching guitar after graduating from UMASS Lowell with a Music degree in Performance and Music Business.
These are a few of Rob's favorite things:
