The quintessential NY-based Italian folk band performing in full Gondolier costumes and authentic Italian and Italian-American music using authentic instrumentation like accordion and mandolin. From O SOLE MIO to Dino & Sinatra and classical crossover ala Bocelli, with vocals in Italian and English.
Members have recently performed at Carnegie Hall (January 2018) and House of Blues Boston (January 2018), among many other credits to their names.
Perfect for cocktail hours and weddings, beautiful, romantic music from Venice, Naples and Rome, can be hired as SOLO accordionist or mandolinist or as a full TRIO.
Performers can play in your choice of either full Gondolier costumes or in suits.
Great performer. Super nice guy. Highly recommend!
We had a blast with our accordion player. He was friendly and very knowledgeable with a great music selection. We hope to book his and/or the trio in the near future.
My Mother's 70th birthday party was an Italian garden party, and solo accordionist Josh was the perfect entertainment! He dressed as a gondolier and performed a set of Italian songs that had us clapping and singing along.
Prior to the party, booked through GigSalad, Josh communicated with me about the details. He arrived promptly and ready to perform. A wonderful accordionist and an excellent showman, he brought the party to life with Italian music, and even threw in a couple of Polish polkas for my Dad! His personality and showmanship drew everyone in, transporting us to Italy, and within a few songs we felt as though he was part of the family- our long-lost Gondolier cousin serenading his great Aunt on her birthday. It was lovely. I am so grateful for his excellent performance and professionalism throughout the planning process. I would absolutely hire him again, and most certainly recommend him for any such event.
