So many great situations developing for our favorite Vito! He’ll be turning up in many new venues here in the Hudson Valley and beyond! Look for Vito’s “Little Rock” making their debut in various locations in and around the area, “Little Rock” will be playing Vito tunes leaning toward that swampy, funky, bluesy sound! Americana meets the roots of roots! One date to save is Saturday June 25th (Vito’s Birthday Bash) where his mighty band will kick off the Millbrook Arts Group Summer Concert Series at the bandshell on Franklin Ave. in the lovely village of Millbrook, NY! At the end of February, Vito is honored to have been asked to participate in one of the coolest Singer-songwriter series...

Man! What a blast playing 2 nights at Delta Blue with Professor Louie and the Cromatix! so many friend’s on the walls too! Murali, Slam, Petey, and many more were there before me (anyway)!

NRBQ vocalist when the band was signed to Columbia Records by Clive Davis himself! Frank Gadler has a brand new come back CD entitled “Cause of You”, Vito had the honor of not only playing on it, but co-producing it as well! Like a dream come true working in and around NRBQ members past and present. Vito was 8 or 9 when his sister would crank up “Scraps” in the backyard on an old high fidelity phonograph player. The Frank Gadler band has been making a few appearances on the eastern seaboard and may be coming to a town near you, Willi Amrod and Danny Sheehan are in the mix!

Vito jumped at the chance when asked if he could engineer a recording session that involved Maceo Parker and Pee Wee Ellis. If you’re clueless about who they are, you might want to go see the new movie “Get On Up” to learn about these legends!!! Vito not only had the honor of recording them, he also plays on Willi Amrod’s “Everywhere is Out of Town” CD with Pee Wee, Maceo AND Fred Wesley!!! Vito, Maceo Parker, Willi Amrod and Pee Wee Ellis!
