Phil Vassar to Headline Festa Italiana Sunday, July 21

Vassar Will Celebrate 20 years of Chart-Topping Hits in His Only Milwaukee Summer Performance at Festa Italiana

 

Festa Italiana organizers are excited to welcome back award-winning singer/songwriter Phil Vassar in his only Milwaukee summer performance at Festa Italiana Sunday, July 21 at 9 p.m. at Henry W. Maier Festival Park (Summerfest grounds).

 

Vassar’s Hitsteria Tour celebrates 20 years of chart-topping hits including 10 number one singles and 26 Top 40 hits. Vassar is sure to have Festa-goers rocking out to his reign of signature songs, including “Carlene,” “Just Another Day in Paradise,” “Six-Pack Summer,” “When I Love You” and many more. Vassar was racking up hits on the radio long before he even began his own recording career, which has thus far resulted in the release of seven albums, two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year trophies, ACM’s Top New Male Vocalist, and sold-out shows across the country.

 

“We’re thrilled to welcome Milwaukee favorite, Phil Vassar, back to Festa Italiana. He always puts on a spectacular show when he’s in town, and we can’t wait to celebrate 20 years of his music at this year’s festival. Phil is a fantastic performer who knows how to get a crowd moving and we look forward to enjoying all of Phil’s best hits in his only Milwaukee summer performance,” said Joe Emanuele, Italian Community Center president and chairman of Festa Italiana.

 

Festa Italiana takes place Friday, July 19 – Sunday, July 21, at the Henry W. Maier Festival Park on Milwaukee’s lakefront. Festivalgoers can take in all entertainment acts for the value price of only $10.00 for advance sale tickets now through July 18. Tickets are $13.00 after July 18 and at the gate.

Legendary KC & The Sunshine Band to Headline Festa Italiana Saturday, July 20

Experience this Grammy Awarding-winning band for the cost of a Festa admission ticket

 

Festa Italiana organizers are excited to welcome the iconic American disco and funk band KC and the Sunshine Band as a headliner of this year’s festival. The Grammy Award-winning band will headline Festa Italiana Saturday, July 20 at 9 p.m. at Henry W. Maier Festival Park (Summerfest grounds).

 

With over 100 million records sold, three Grammy Awards and an American Music Award, Festa-goers can dust off their disco shoes and shake until they drop with one of music’s most iconic groups! Celebrating 40 years of getting people on the dance floor, KC and the Sunshine Band defined the sound of the 1970s and is hailed as one of the decade’s most progressive bands, creating a groove that still resonates in modern pop music. The unique fusion of R&B and funk, with a hint of Latin percussion resulted in an impressive string of hits like “Get Down Tonight,” “That’s The Way (I Like It)” and “Shake Your Booty.”

 

“This year’s entertainment is one for the books. With the goal to create instant happiness through music, KC and The Sunshine Band is sure to have people of all ages grooving on the dance floor all night long.  With additional headliners soon-to-be-announced, we can’t wait to celebrate Festa Italiana with this year’s star-powered entertainment lineup,” said Joe Emanuele, Italian Community Center president and chairman of Festa Italiana.

 

KC and the Sunshine Band gave a voice to a generation, helped define an entire culture, and continues to make a lasting impact on music fans today. With over four decades of success, and having performed at every major sporting event in the world, the group, led by Harry Wayne “KC” Casey, has been in a state of perpetual renewal as they are consistently introduced to new generations of fans – thanks in part to their music being featured on numerous motion picture soundtracks, television shows and in national advertising campaigns. KC and the Sunshine Band are sure to get festival-goers out of their seats and onto the dance floor this summer!

 

Festa Italiana takes place Friday, July 19 – Sunday, July 21, at the Henry W. Maier Festival Park on Milwaukee’s lakefront. Festivalgoers can take in all entertainment acts for the value price of only $10.00 for advance sale tickets now through July 18. Tickets are $13.00 after July 18 and at the gate.
