Vito rings in the new year in two places this year!!! He’ll start with his one man show in Millbrook, NY with three performances at the Grace Church, Franklin St in the village. All part of a “village wide” celebration tradition that happens each and every year in the lovely town of Millbrook!! Families welcome, many other performers spread throughout the town, brought to you by the Millbrook Rotory club! Vito performances are 4 to 4:30, 5:30 to 6, and 7 to 7:30pm At the Grace Church! Then, Vito travels north to American Glory BBQ for THE wildest New Year this side of Pit Bull’s party! THE LINDSEY WEBSTER band will be ringing in 2015 with a bang!!!...
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)! Great accommodations at the Northern Inn and thank you Garrick for being a terrific host! Treated like royalty!!!
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! To get Frankie’s new CD, just email firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
