3rd Annual Italian Walk Of Fame

Mark it off in your calenders, September 5th/2011 the stars will come out for the 3rd Annual Italian Walk Of Fame.

I’ve been invited to perform at the Gala Awards dinner and from what I witnessed last year,

it will definitely be the place to be and become a highlight of my year.

The IWOF, co-founded by Jimi Bertucci(Abraham’s Children) and Marisa Beaco-Lang, aims to contribute to the preservation of Italian Heritage by recognizing and celebrating the acheivements of Italians locally and worldwide.

It is appropriately located on College St. in Toronto’s Little Italy, the city that is home to the largest community of Italians outside of Italy. Stars are placed permanently in the sidewalk and unveiled during a red carpet ceremony followed by a gala awards dinner.

Previous inductees include:

2009-Connie Francis, Giancarlo Giannini, Johnny Lombardi, Julian Fantino, Phil Esposito and Rudolph Bratty.

2010-Armand Assante, Enrico Colantoni, Dean Martin, Frank Mancuso Jr. and Frank Iacobucci.

Come and celebrate the stars at this year’s Italian Walk of Fame, you won’t be disappointed.

What an amazing Canada Day weekend, the weather was superb and the people were out in numbers on one of the busiest weekends of the summer. I had an awesome time performing for this years 14th Annual Corso Italia Festival. The festival is a wonderful opportunity for the whole family to experience the food and culture of Toronto’s own Corso Italia on St. Clair.

Over 30 bands/musicians perform live on street corners, patios and balconies.
Lined up along the street as well you’ll find vendors, games and fun for all.
In addition, food and beverage retailers offer a mouth-watering selection of tastes and flavours.
Corso Italia boasts a variety of superb stores and services,including bakeries, book stores, fashion boutiques,
food markets, beauty salons, gift shops, jewellery stores and more.

This year’s line up saw the likes of some great acts like: Cobra Kings, Yiannis Kapoulas, Claudio Santaluce, Sambacana, Inner Soul, Puente del Diablo, Mississauga Big Band, Grupo Rey, Havana Express, Toronto All Star Big Band, Imbayakunas, Silver Elvis, Magic Matt and Johnny Scat.
