Samsara - local band

“Samsara” is comprised of local talented New York teenagers from Queens and Long Island.

Dylan Trif (Lead Vocals) is just 15 years old, while Charlie LoMonaco (Lead Guitar and Backup Vocals) is 17 years, John Devito (Lead Bass) is 18. Ben Bustamante (Drums and Backup Vocals) is 15 and Brendan Sandhovel (Bass and rhythm Guitar) is 16.

Charlie, Ben and John began playing music together at an early age through a local music school. Years later, they connected with Dylan and Brendan and formed what is now Samsara.

Samsara draws influence from several styles including, grunge, blues, funk, metal and alternative. They play originals as well as some fun deep cut covers.

Samsara’s objective is to rise up in the traditional rock music scene as well as to add a different dimension to the style of music they play both artistically and creatively, thus attracting new listeners in all genres.

Currently performing at clubs and music venues on Long Island and New York City while also playing venues in the whole tristate area.
