Pandolfi moved his family back to his hometown of Greenville in the mid-'80s and became a resident pianist at a local club until 1993. During this time, he also recorded his debut album entitled By Request, which was picked up by a national distributor and released in 1991. His work is in such high demand that his various material of Broadway show tunes, standards, and film scores have lead Pandolfi to sell nearly two million albums worldwide. His album roster also includes the critically acclaimed Please Welcome... (1993), Nights on Broadway (1994), and Evening Romance (2000).
Aside from his musical passions, Pandolfi established a fundraiser with the United Way in 1994, a benefit concert showcasing his comical talents while raising thousands of dollars for various charities.
