Expect an explosion of legendary musicians and an extraordinary night of gigantic guitar riffs, rousing dance tunes and locked tight harmonies.
THE SPAMPINATO BROTHERS: Joey Spampinato is a founding member of the legendary NRBQ, the fun rocking band who defies categorization by being the only band to have played the Berlin Jazz Fest and then the Grand Ole Opry! They might be considered a Rock and Roll band but the only true way to categorize them is under "FUN." Brother Johnny joined the band 25 years into the game and during Joey and Johnny's stint together with the Q, the band was featured on animated TV show "The Simpsons." After many years making great music together the brothers teamed up and became the brilliant songwriting, music-making, touring unit they were always destined for: The Spampinato Brothers!
