We sing mainly an Italian repertoire, but I also can include songs from Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, Louis Prima, and Perry Como, as well as American pop from the 50's to the 80's.
We always arrive early.
We dress professionally and appropriately.
Our equipment and instruments are the highest quality available.
Dave Anthony Setteducati has been singing and performing on the guitar professionally for over 50 years, in all kinds of musical situations. He currently favors a Neapolitan and Italian repertoire, performing as a soloist and also with his group, Quartetto Ducati. The Quartetto adds an accordionist, a violinist, and a percussion to Dave's vocal and guitar.
In 2009 Dave was a finalist in the Guitar Player Magazine International Competition. He has 8 CDs to his credit, two of them devoted to Italian music. A proud moment for Dave came after he played a special event and a ten year old boy came up to him and said, "Mister, you're the best singer I've ever heard!!!" He has been featured on local radio and TV stations. His own show, Italian America Long Island, appears weekly on the Optimum Cable network.
Mike Giordano, accordionist, has won many contests and awards for his playing. He is one of Long Island's most sought after accordionist and keyboard player. His family has been playing accordion for three generations.
Lora Kendall, violin and vocals, is and exciting performer with the sweetest voice you can imagine! Her Italian heritage traces back to her grandfather, a founding member of the Order Sons and Daughters of Italy in America. Audiences love her!!
Paula Cali, vocals and percussion, has a beautiful voice and has performed up and down the East Coast and also in the British Virgin Islands. She is constantly complimented on her singing and percussion abilities.
