Best Entertainment Lineup in Festival History?

The 2014 Santa Lucia Festival includes entertainment for all ages. 2014 will carry an ALL Italian theme, and could be the best entertainment lineup in the great history of our celebrated festival!

Frankie Valli & Four Seasons Tribute Band known as Lights Out, Willie Fratello, and Mike Gurciullo will headline this special 90th festival.  Kathryn Bisanti and Mark Morello WILL again perform their brilliant Italian songs, as well as the Santa Lucia Festival Band & LaBanda



Lights Out (Frankie Valli & Four Seasons Tribute)

Lights Out is a four part, Tribute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, group that has been entertaining audiences for many years and focuses on the art of harmony and the pure sound of voices. With a lead singer who sounds almost identical to Frankie Valli himself, the group’s infectious personality and fully choreographed show promises to keep audiences wanting more even after the curtain closes.

Willie Farrell (Frato)

Willie Farrell is one of the country’s best known Italian comedians. The son of a gangster, Willie met mob boss Jimmy Hoffa, but admits he was too young to remember it. He’s performed in nearly every comedy club in the country, but now spends most of the year onstage at the Tropicana, Sahara, and Riviera Casino showrooms on the Las Vegas strip.

Mike Gurciullo

Featuring some of the finest arrangements from the big band era. Join veteran Las Vegas Entertainer, Michael “Gooch” Gurciullo and his swinging big band for this “Vintage Vegas Show.”
