Q&A w/ Far Rock Blues Guitarist Bert Elliot

Blues musician Bert Elliot first moved to Rockaway when he was about 10-yearsold. There, he attended P.S. 114 for about three years, before moving from his uncle’s house on Beach 140th Street in Belle Harbor to the Ocean Bay Housing projects at Beach 57th Street and Beach Channel Drive in Edgemere.

Elliot first developed a passion for music after picking up the drums in fourth grade. He went on to graduate from Far Rockaway High School, before attending Queens College, where he worked toward honing his craft.

In 1978, he graduated with a degree in music composition, and just a few years later, wound up getting a publishing deal, to write background/theme music for network television.

“That kept me staying busy for a while during the 80s and up through the 90s,” Elliot said.

While composing music for MTV, Maury and Jerry Springer, he continued touring with his good friend and fellow musician, Gary Toms.
