are a few reasons why I have been a big fan of this band for
the past years: First, the repertoireand the presentation of
the group takes me back to my first professiona job as a teenager
with the Louis Prima Big Band. I´m also very impressed
by the musicanship of the rhythm section and the horns. I cannot
imagine any other group handling this material much better.
band´s instrumentalists proved to be versatile soloists.
With a lot of feeling for rhythmic delicacy, with supreme tone
quality- even in quiet passages- the five musicans created a
sound authority as if there were at least twice as many musicans
on stage. The
solos were perfectly balanced. Just as long and extended, that
every musican could demonstrate his virtousity, but not too
long so that the band with there accompaning arrangements stayed
in the foreground. The singing was one single dance, engaging
and relaxed at the same time.....with lots of swing
It became really hot when Vitello Tonnato and the Roaring Zucchinis hit the stage. The band knew how to combine the Louis Prima Sound with Italian folk and entertainment without sliding into sentimental rubbish. The atmosphere raised and it got pretty crowded on the dancefloor.

"That´s happy music, folks", shouts Mr. Vitello Tonnato into his microfon and the atmosphere at the Night Club of the Bayerischer Hof verifies it. The Roaring Zucchinis played there music from the 40´s and 60´s, and cool businessmen got rid of their jacket and entered the dancefloor. Quite an experience!!
"They are not a secret any more.They have been widely celebrated in the munich scene and they started some firework at there debut at Valentin´s".
"......cause the Roaring Zucchinis offered Sunny side of the Street or Just a Gigolo not with ordinary lard but with finest olive oil.
