About Carl Fischer:

Carl Fischer is a versatile musician, acclaimed for his roles as a trumpet, flugelhorn, trombone, and saxophone player in the Billy Joel band.

His versatility and passion for music have established him as one of the premier brass musicians of his generation. Carl honed his skills at local venues such as the renowned Sonny’s Place in Seaford, NY, and the Brokerage in Bellmore, NY, where he played with groups like the Funk Filharmonik.
