Patrick Battstone

Patrick Battstone Dec 2010 Patrick Battstone began performing music professionally at the age of 14, playing in various rock, blues, and R&B bands in South Western Ohio. By the time he was 18, he had received lessons from Stan Kenton and Gary Burton, had been mentored by Oscar Treadwell (Oska T), and had played with James Brown’s recording sidemen as well as members of the musical “Hair”.

In 1973, he attended Berklee College of Music and soon after became a student of both Mme Chaloff and Charlie Banacos. During this time he performed at various Boston venues, both as a solo pianist, and as a member of various ensembles. One of his bands, which featured hometown friend Grover Mooney, opened the fabled 1369 Club in Cambridge. Later, they collaborated in booking the Green St Station and the Arbor House as well as hosting late night jams sessions.
