Early life

Calabro was born in Orlando, Florida and raised in Lakeland, Florida after his parents left New York in the late 1950s. He studied piano and accordion before settling to percussion with a concentration on mallets.

Attending college in Georgia, and receiving a B.S. in Communications, Calabro continued his music prowess in Atlanta and Athens, Georgia performing with several bands, most notably A&M recording artists The Swimming Pool Q's for a period of ten years and recording on their most recent album.[1]

His acting career began in the 1990s, as he traveled with fellow actor Emmy Collins from East to West coast, working on movie sets as an actor, stand-in or photo-double. Calabro's experiences led to the book Anyone Can Be in Movies.[2] He returned to Georgia from L.A. and began writing and directing.
