Born and raised in Buffalo, NY, Dominic Missana was integrated into the local music scene from an early age, playing his first shows on the saxophone and harmonica with local legends at only 13. In high school, he spent all of his time in the band wing, where he further developed his musical talent - and his love of jazz. He eventually won the best soloist award in jazz legend Wynton Marsalis' Essentially Ellington Jazz at Lincoln Center Student Competition. The competition introduced him to New York City, and inspired him to start his career there after college. 

Dominic attended the renowned Purchase Conservatory of Music, graduating with a degree in Jazz Saxophone, and moved to Manhattan shortly after where he still resides. Today, Dominic specializes within the rhythm section of many groups but is also featured playing saxophone and harmonica all over NYC.

Over the course of his career, Dominic has shared the stage with dozens of acclaimed artists, including Jerry Livingston (Rick James Band), David "Fathead" Newman (Ray Charles Band), Bernard Purdie (James Brown Band), Bruce Johnstone, Bobby Militello, Wynton Marsalis, The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Eric Alexander, Charles Blenzig, Zuri Appleby, Ben Williams, Marcus Strickland, Marcus Gilmore, David Frazier Jr., Gabriel Garzón-Montano, Bobby Brown, Ty Dolla $ign, Ledisi, Parliament Funkadelic, Snarky Puppy, JoJo Abot, Common, Wyclef Jean, and Action Bronson.

Today, Dominic plays with and musically directs local NYC acts such as ALLNAT, Quincy Vidal, Latasha Alcindor, Halley Hiatt, Rosehardt and Le’Asha Julius, and serves as the musical director for the Special Victims Unit, the house band on VICELAND's Untitled Action Bronson Show.
