In addition to performing, Judah spends his off time writing and recording music with bandmates José D. Cruz and Andrew Berger and enjoying the magical world around him.

José D. Cruz is a multi-instrumentalist and performer based in Northern NJ.

In addition to this, José is a Music Director and Instructor at Porch Light Studio, Stage & School in Glen Rock, NJ, where he’s discovered a love for musical theater performance and instruction. Originally a classically trained pianist, José has since broadened his musical arsenal to include guitar, trumpet, bass, and percussion. He delights in reharmonizing church hymns and playing Runescape in his downtime. José also held a dog for the entirety of Judah’s wedding and it was the highlight of his life.
