MAZ” is the Lead Guitarist for THE TED POLEY BAND. Born and raised on the border of North Bergen and Jersey City, NJ, MAZ started playing seriously at age 13. His influences include the likes of Jimmy Page, Joe Perry, Ted Nugent, Pat Travers and Stevie RaeVaughn and Mark Hitt and many more.

At 16 he formed SSSTEELE ( A well known Jersey metal band that still have an underground following today), SSSTEELE enjoyed a good run on the Jersey Metal Scene for 10 years. Their album was produced by Dae Bennett (Tony Bennett’s Son).MAZ was voted best guitar player in NJ circa 1996 by The East Coast Rocker Magazine. Maz always kept busy playing more than 100 shows a year. After the break up of SSSTEELE…MAZ was in various well know cover bands on the Jersey Scene to keep himself busy performing. MAZ was asked to join THE SMOKE– MCA/MECHANIC RECORDS DIV. recording artists. Although that was short lived he was asked to join Steve Brown and PJ Farley from Trixter in a new project they put together called 40 FT. RINGO. They signed to Atenzia/Universal Records and released the album Funny Thing. While playing in 40 Ft Ringo, Maz shared the stage opening up for David Lee Roth, Alice
Cooper, Scoprions, Cheap Trick, Vince Neil, Ace Frehley, Jason Bonham, Foreigner, Faster Pussycat…just to name a few.

MAZ’s raw guitar sounds, with his unique and unmistakable back alley style and charisma radiates when he hits the stage. Because of his passion for playing his guitar, when Maz is not on the road, he performs with his band PUMP CITY, a well respected and energetic All Star Band on the Jersey Music Scene. His experience, passion, drive and dedication to any project he is involved in does not go unnoticed by his fellow musicians which led him to become Ted Poley’s (Danger Danger frontman) lead guitarist. Maz has toured the Midwest and Europe with TED POLEY BAND in the past five years with more dates to come in 2012. MAZ also performed in the video with TED POLEY BAND covering the song “Breathe” by Michelle Branch which can be viewed on Youtube which can be seen on link below.
