Tom Mac Group

arena2

The Tom Mac Group is a diverse, multitalented musical group playing a unique mixture of originals and cover tunes in the Group’s own creative style. Although their music ranges across several diverse styles of jazz, folk and rock their main forte is playing Cuban music (Buena Vista Social Club) and James Taylor cover tunes, but not mixing the two together. The infectious and creative music that flows from this band is an experience not to be missed.

The STEVEE NIX musical journey consists of the best tracks in modern/alternative rock by the likes of O.A.R., Kings of Leon, Neon Trees, and Black Keys to name a few.

One of the Festivals favorite performers comes back after a couple years off. Since his appearance on Dick Clark’s, “Your Big Break” television show in ’2000′, Denny had become one of the top Neil Diamond tribute artists world wide. His voice has an uncanny similarity to that of Neil Diamond’s distinctive baritone voice and his stage presence is second to none. This Neil Diamond Tribute act is truly one of the best in the nation.  By the way, his kids are the Family Jewels, Lucas, Spenser, and Sarah.

Kashmir

kashmir_with_title

This is Kashmir’s second appearance to Festa Italiana, last appearing in 2010. Formed in late 2001, this Led Zeppelin Tribute band is based on substance.  KASHMIR seeks to re-create the mindset of a 70′s Zeppelin Show utilizing authentic vintage stage gear, costumes, and special effects, with attention to great detail in a non-pretentious way. But most importantly, KASHMIR does not take liberties on “improving” the music. “Led Zeppelin should be played as it was using only the equipment available of the day and should be reproduced “dead on” with great respect and admiration.”  KASHMIR performs Led Zeppelin’s entire catalog including but not limited to Led’s Zeppelin’s movie The Song Remains The Same.
