Gene Casey formed THE LONE SHARKS having moved to Long Island's East End in 1988. The Lone Sharks became a mainstay in the late 1990s Hamptons music scene. Gene Casey and the Lone Sharks have shared billing and/or backed-up NRBQ, Link Wray, Sleepy LaBeef, Wanda Jackson, Bill Kirchen, Elvis Costello, the Who's John Entwistle, The Highway QC's and on one unforgettable night, TINY TIM. Several of Gene's roots-drenched songs have been used on the soundtrack to television and feature film, including FX Network's Justified and Sons of Anarchy; the 2012 thriller The Tall Man starring Jessica Biel, and the 2013 release The Killing Season starring Robert DeNiro. December 2012 brought the release of Gene and the band's latest all-original CD, Untrained an album celebrating the roots of contemporary Americana with 12 original songs that evoke the romantic sweep of 60s pop, classic Country Western and the raw untamed spirit of early rock & roll. The "main men" joining Gene in the Lone Sharks are Chris Ripley, drums, Paul Scher, saxophone and Tony Palumbo, upright bass.
