The Bronx Wanderers

So glad to see the great The Bronx Wanderers in their new location at The Linq in the Mat Franco showroom. These guys have been one of my favorite shows in Las Vegas since they got here. I have seen them many times and loved each time as each show is different as they perform each night with new material, but never leave out the favorites that their fans and audiences have come to love. The Bronx Wanderers have superlative vocals and musicianship, dynamic enthusiasm and a genuine love of the music they perform as they recreate and build an energetic bond with their audience.

The Bronx Wanderers show tells stories and plays music up close and personal. The father-and-son trio, flanked by their top-notch band, effortlessly perform hits made famous by the likes of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, Dion, Queen, Billy Joel and Bruno Mars. United by their passion for great music, The Bronx Wanderers are helmed to perfection by charismatic master entertainer Vinny Adinolfi, who is a former chart-topping record producer. He is joined on stage by his two sons - Vinny “Vin. A” Adinolfi III, an Italian Brian Wilson who sings, arranges and plays several different instruments, and drummer extraordinaire Nicky Adinolfi – as well as a killer hand-picked backup band, including Joe Bari, Fernando Tort and David Braun.

Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar opened at Town Square with a yum yum menu and an over 150 whiskey menu. Media was invited and I enjoyed some of their offerings. There is a reason for the name Big Whiskey. Many years ago a joking, favorite customer of a small tavern would tell the bartender he was only going to have one, so make it a Big one. So, Big Whiskey became a tradition and became the name of the original Big Whiskey’s. Congrats to the new Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar in Town Square and you too can now go and enjoy all they have to offer.
