Joseph Russo

Lead Vocals

Joe's love for Freddie and Queen started when he won tickets to see them at Nassau Coliseum at the age of 10. As a musical theatre performer, he has proven his talent with lead roles in productions of Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Hair, both in the US and Europe.

Steve Leonard

Lead Guitar

Steve first discovered Queen while attending a Mets game at Shea Stadium. As the bases were loaded, it was "We Will Rock You" that caught his attention! He's into songwriting, recording, and really digs playing the guitar. Check out Steve's latest album "The Good Wheel". "Be Like Alfonso" and give it a listen!

Randy Gregg


Randy has performed on stages across the globe with world touring rock bands. Besides playing bass in Almost Queen, he mostly just watches Star Wars and listens to Cheap Trick.

John Cappadona


John is an absolute monster behind the drum set and a natural showman on the throne. Once behind the kit, he simply can't stop playing. John has an infectious energy that always keeps the audience entertained. If you happen to come across a guy singing a rousing rendition of "At Last" at karaoke night, that's probably John.

Some of Almost Queen's favorite venues and events include...

Stone Pony Summer Stage

Asbury Park, NJ

The Stone Pony Summer Stage is a favorite of Almost Queen, who consistently pack the 5000-person capacity venue with their electrifying performances. Joe and Steve, who hail from New Jersey, have been making the rounds in Asbury Park for years. They love to soak up the sun on the beach and rock the stages at all the local music spots. Asbury Park holds a special place in our hearts, and we are grateful for all of our fans who come out to rock with us at The Pony year after year.

The Capitol Theatre

Port Chester, NY

Almost Queen is always thrilled to have the opportunity to perform at the historic Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. This venue, rich in music history, has been a favorite of the band for years. The band loves to visit their friends at The Cap and perform for the beautiful people who come out to see them rock this special venue. The sold-out shows at The Cap have been some of the band's most memorable performances.

Party In The Park

Rochester, NY

We always look forward to the biggest party of the summer, appropriately called Party in the Park! Each year, thousands of people gather in Downtown Rochester to celebrate the music of Queen. It's always a joy to visit our friends and fans in Rochester and be a part of such a fun event.
