Entertainer Bios:

6:30 pm – 7:30 pm Hillside Theater Stage
Singer, Songwriter, Composer, Musician.
Sydney native ALFIO has one of the greatest voices in contemporary music today. This highly charismatic tenor/crooner offers a refreshingly cool and modern throwback to the legendary singers to which he is often compared. Captivating his audience with equal parts music journey, powerful vocals and comedic banter, ALFIO effortlessly brings all generations of music lovers together in one audience; and regardless of whether he sings in English, Italian or Spanish, all languages flow as one. With a talent that is uniquely his own, one thing is clear – ALFIO is traveling in his own lane and doing it his way. Alfio recently recorded a PBS concert show which will air on PBS stations across the country in August.

The Holidays
8:00 – 9:30 pm Hillside Theater Stage
The Holidays replicate the original sounds of the past with freshness and vitality. Their repertoire of tunes will take you through the 50's, 60's, and 70's and will keep you both entertained and tapping feet to the beat of the music, which has an endless abundance of energy and charisma. Front line singers Sam Ferrella, Josephine Crooks, Walt Lendl and Wayne Zollinger are backed by a group of musicians who are second to none! Along with their strong lead voices, the Groups vocal harmony is outstanding!
