In addition, there will be great music to enjoy by local and regional acts including Pino Marelli, The Simone Vitale Band, Ray Massa’s Italian Band, Dino Valle, and many more.

They have been acclaimed for their ability to captivate the younger “Pop Culture” audiences while simultaneously thrilling established fans of Italian & Swing music. You can see them every night during Festa Italiana!
