Vinny And Vin A of The Bronx Wanderers are gracing the stage of Ruth Eckerd Hall’s Kate Tiedemann And Ellen Cotton Cabaret Theatre for three live performances in March 2021. Believe it or not, the Bronx Wanderers were first launched in 2006 basically as a whim.
Vinny Adinolfi had already enjoyed plenty of success as a gold-record producer, label executive and publisher for Lifesong Records, Cashwest Productions, Blendingwell Music, Sister John Music and PKM Music. With gold records for albums such as Dion UK Return of the Wanderer, Henry Gross’s Shannon, Jim Croce’s first three albums as well as his Greatest Hits and Greatest Love Songs albums, Alabama’s Dixieland Delight, Reba McEntire’s Does He Love You, George Strait’s You’re The Cloud I’m On, The Spinner’s Heavy on the Sunshine, and many more, Vinny was prodded by friends and family to put together “a rock n’ roll band” that would feature his 10 and 14-year old sons. The boys were already turning into little music dynamos, so Vinny decided to have some fun and to give it a whirl.
“These guys are infectious. I love them.” – Tony Orlando
Almost a decade later, the Vinny And Vin A of The Bronx Wanderers have turned into somewhat of a sensation with performances everywhere from casinos such as the Mohegan Sun to major performing arts centers around the country. Fans marvel at the group’s ability to recapture the original sound of the hits in the Vinny And Vin A of The Bronx Wanderers’ repertoire. Thanks to Vinny’s producing expertise and his own musical talent, even songs by the major hitmakers such as Frankie Valli and Paul Anka sound virtually note for note “true” to the studio versions that became such favorites. In addition to its authentic sound, the Vinny And Vin A of The Bronx Wanderers have become known for their terrific stage presence and high energy shows.
Of course, Vinny and the rockin’ band contribute mightily to the energy level; however, “Vinny’s boys” now also have their own original music rock band and they bring that seasoned energy and strong “wow” factor to the Bronx Wanderers’ show. Vinny’s friends and colleagues from his years with Cashwest Productions read like a Who’s Who in the music industry. Names like Dion, Chazz Palminteri and Danny Aiello have inspired Vinny and his dynamo sons to really take the show to the highest level. Today, the Vinny And Vin A of The Bronx Wanderers perform hundreds of shows every year. They will be the first to tell you that they are “living the dream”!
Ruth Eckerd Hall presents Vinny, and Vin A of The Bronx Wanderers live in the Kate Tiedemann and Ellen Cotton Cabaret Theatre at Ruth Eckerd Hall for three nights, Tuesday, March 16, Wednesday, March 17 and Thursday, March 18. All shows are at 7:30 pm. Reservations may only be made online beginning Friday, February 5 at 10 am. Vinny and Vin A will take the stage each night with new material but will not leave out the favorites that their fans and audiences have come to love.
Since forming in 2006, The Bronx Wanderers have toured the country, playing pop/rock classics spanning six decades in front of sold-out audiences everywhere. The show covers all musical bases and hits an out-of-the-park home run with audiences of all ages every night. This is more than just an amazingly talented family band. The Bronx Wanderers are a heart, a sound, a feeling, and a harmony that goes right to the heart of the crowd, getting them singing along and up on their feet like no other show can do.
