Few shows on the Las Vegas Strip can claim to have found success simply by being, quite like The Bronx Wanderers at Bally’s Las Vegas can. After all, while this family band is no stranger to performing sold-out shows, they’re here in Vegas with their own theater, and that’s a page right out of the lead singer’s (and family patriarch) lifelong dream.
Maybe that’s what separates this shows from others like it – the infectious energy, the nostalgia, the stories of lead singer “Yo’ Vinny” Adinolfi, along with his two sons, Vinny “The Kid” and Nicky “Stix” – the family band is nothing short of dynamic, and genuinely happy to be playing on stage. It’s refreshing to see, and the talent of Vinny “The Kid” on the piano, along with Nicky “Stix” on the drums can’t be understated. But it doesn’t end there – each family member is multi-talented and switches instruments with ease. Some families just “have it”.
The story goes like this: patriarch Yo’ Vinny was a long-time gold-record producer for several well known bands, including Jim Croce, Alabama, Reba McEntire and more. He found his own success in his profession, but it didn’t quench the fire in him to have his own band, as the industry left an indelible mark on his soul. Years later, after having two sons of his own, friend of the family Chazz Palmintieri helped him pick a band name, The Bronx Wanderers, and encouraged him to get out there an pursue his dream. The rest, as they say, is history. Following 12 successful years of traveling across the country performing to sold-out audiences, The Bronx Wanderers found their home on the Vegas Strip.
Guests can expect to hear renditions (some traditional and some with a modern twist) of songs by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, along with The Beach Boys, Queen (amazing!), and much more. It’s truly America’s songbook, live on stage. The Bronx Wanderers is performed daily at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are priced at $49.99, $59.99 and $79.99 (VIP, including a meet and greet), plus tax and fee.
