Q&A: VINNY "VIN A." ADINOLFI III

QA_Vinny_AdinolfiIII_LD_t1024.jpg

BY BROCK RADKE 
FEBRUARY 8, 2019

Consisting of father Vinny Adinolfi, his sons Nicky and Vin and their high-energy backing band, the Bronx Wanderers trekked from New York to Las Vegas in 2016 and immediately began building a reputation for one of the most rollicking rock shows on the Strip. Covering everything and everyone from Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons to Bruno Mars, BW’s 90-minute sensation outgrew its first Vegas home at Bally’s and has relocated to The Linq, taking the stage at the Mat Franco Theater six nights a week. Las Vegas Magazine's Brock Radke caught up with singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Vinny “Vin A.” Adinolfi III to find out where this unique, genre- and era-spanning act is going from here.

You’ve been performing in Las Vegas for more than two years, but how long have the Bronx Wanderers been the thing for you?

Since birth! I’m just kidding. The Bronx Wanderers started in 2006 with my brother and I and my dad and his friends. He got a bunch of cool people from the neighborhood to do the band with us, guys from the Earls and the Regents and the Tokens. My brother and I were the only two young dudes. We started progressing and were eventually playing 250 dates a year, just always on the road, and the guys never got to see their families where we were lucky because we were with our family. So they had to leave. But I told my dad, don’t worry about it, Nicky and I had our own band. So now it was a 50-year-old musician going on the road with a bunch of 18-year-olds and everybody loved it.

And you eventually decided you wanted to do a show in Las Vegas. Why was that so important?

Mainly it was for my dad. I was young and had no idea of the whole Vegas thing, but I liked the idea of having people come to you as opposed to you going to them. Dad was a record executive for 30 years and he looked up to Wayne Newton and the Rat Pack and Tom Jones and it was his dream to be one of those guys. We had no idea it would work out. I’d ever seen my dad so excited as when he’d get on that elevator at Bally’s every day and Wayne Newton was in the same elevator going to do his show. He was just, “Can you believe this? Do you kids even know the gravity of this?”

You just moved the show into the larger Mat Franco Theater at The Linq. It’s a big move.

We’re excited and nervous about it. The team (at The Linq) told us, “Just do what you’re doing. You’ve earned this.” And Mat Franco couldn’t have been cooler. That kind of support has been a calming force. And we’re adding a bunch of new stuff to the show, new screens, new costumes and adding a lot of new moments to the show. We can’t wait for people to see this new installment.

There’s so much energy at that property right now. Does the excitement from other new features at the Linq carry over to you guys?

Oh yeah. They just added that new zipline (The FlyLinq) and it’s bringing a ton of people and there’s a new convention center under construction. It’s a really cool location right between Harrah’s and the Flamingo which is kind of our demo, but we’ve got a bunch of young guys in the band and we’re hoping more young people will come to the show. My whole goal with Bronx Wanderers is to get an age group from 8 to 88, to have something for everybody. It’s not an easy task but when you do it right, it’s so rewarding.

What about adapting off the stage? Do you feel you’ve become a real local Las Vegan?

I immediately fell in love with Las Vegas because there’s so much going on musically. It’s not like anywhere else. But I’ve definitely been able to do some fun stuff when I have time. I really like going to Giada and having a nice glass of wine. I’m pretty tight with Anthony Cools and he brought me to Axe Monkeys (an indoor axe throwing range). One of my favorite things out here is Musashi, this really cool (teppanyaki) restaurant that’s open until 4 a.m. This town is a lot like New York where everything is open 24/7, it’s just a lot more chill. New York has that anxious vibe where people are rushing around even when they don’t need to be somewhere.

The Bronx Wanderers have been a touring rock and roll show for a dozen years but the later part of that run was spent trying to get to Las Vegas. Why? It was for dear old dad.

“My dad is a big believer in having a five-year plan,” explains Vinny “Vin A.” Adinolfi III, who forms the core of the group with drummer brother Nicky and record label exec and producer-turned-entertainer father Vinny. “The first five-year plan was to start a band and be in all the oldies shows in the New York area. Peter Noone or Tony Orlando or someone like that would play and we’d open that show. And then we went on tour around the country to try to become our own thing, and that was the next five years, headlining.”

The next five-year plan was all about Las Vegas, Vin continues, because his dad was such a fan of the city’s music scene and endless array of stars, the ones he worshipped working in the industry for decades. Guys like Wayne Newton.

After a Bronx Wanderers show in Florida, the Adinolfis met some of the producers who had installed “Menopause The Musical” in Las Vegas and they thought the guys and their band would be a good fit for the Strip. Flash forward to September 2016 when BW opened in the Windows Showroom at Bally’s, sharing the theater with none other than Newton himself.

IMG_8201-1.jpg

“I’ve never seen my dad as excited as when he’d get in that elevator every day to go up to the showroom and Wayne Newton would be in the elevator after getting done with his own show,” Vin says. “He was just, ‘Can you believe this? Do you kids even know the gravity of this?’ And it was so cool to hang out with Wayne even if we were starstruck. He’s so cool and down to earth.”

After a couple years at Bally’s, the group built enough momentum to move into a bigger room: BW opened this week at the Mat Franco Theater at the Linq, a 600-seat room in a casino with a lot of new energy. They’re hoping to take advantage of that energy and expand the show’s audience, which has always included different people of different ages and not just folks reliving the glory days of old-fashioned rock and roll.

“My whole goal with Bronx Wanderers is we want anyone from age 8 to 88 to be able to enjoy the music and the show together, to have something for everybody,” Vin says. “It’s just like those of us in the band, we’re all different ages and we all need to be satisfied with the music and what we do. It’s not an easy task but when you do it right, it’s so rewarding.”

The father-and-son trio and their bandmates — Joe Bari, Fernando Tort and David Braun — will continue to storm through classics from Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Dion, Queen and Billy Joel, among others, along with more modern hits performed in the signature BW style. The scale will be greater at the Linq.

“I’m super proud of the guys in the band and the show’s entire staff because I wouldn’t be where I am without these people behind us and involved in this project,” Vin says. “If you surround yourself with the right people and they’re all in it with hearts facing the same goal, great things can happen.”

The Bronx Wanderers perform Monday, Tuesday and Friday at 9 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 4 p.m. at the Mat Franco Theater at the Linq (3535 Las Vegas Blvd. South, 702-777-2782) and more information can be found at caesars.com/linq.

The Bronx Wanderers will continue to charm audiences with the best 90 minutes of America’s Rock ‘N’ Roll songbook all on one stage when this high energy show moves to the Mat Franco Theater inside The LINQ Hotel & Casino beginning Monday, Jan. 28. 

Since opening at Bally’s Las Vegas more than two years ago, the father-and-son trio, flanked by their top-notch band, has performed more than 800 shows for over 70,000 fans, and was voted the Bronze Winner of the “Best New Act/Show” by the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s Best of Las Vegas Awards 2017. Popular demand has called for The Bronx Wanderers to move to a larger venue on The Strip, and while the scale of the production will be greater, the group will continue to provide their fans with an up close and personal, yet larger than life show. Audiences can still expect to hear hits spanning from the beginning of Rock ‘N’ Roll right through today’s tunes, including numbers from Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, Dion, Queen, Billy Joel and Bruno Mars, as well as some fun additions for the new show at The LINQ.

United by their passion for great music, The Bronx Wanderers are helmed to perfection by charismatic master entertainer Vinny Adinolfi, who is a former chart-topping record producer. He is joined on stage by his two sons – Vinny “Vin. A” Adinolfi III, an Italian Brian Wilson who sings, arranges and plays several different instruments, and drummer extraordinaire Nicky Adinolfi – as well as a killer hand-picked backup band, including Joe Bari, Fernando Tort and David Braun.

“We have loved performing for our fans in Las Vegas for the past two years, and are so excited that we have this opportunity to play in a new, larger theater at The LINQ, which will allow us to take the show to a whole new level,” said the band and show’s founder, Vinny Adinolfi. “This isn’t just your parents’ Rock ‘N’ Roll. Audiences will leave the show singing and feeling like one of the famiglia. I am living my dream!”

IMG_8590.jpg

“This is a one-of-a-kind show! The Bronx Wanderers provide the best musical time you will experience on one stage, or dare I say, ever!” added Kathi Glist, one of the show’s producers. “When 20 year olds in the crowd are jumping to their feet, clapping and yelling to hits from the ‘50s to present day, right alongside 70 year olds, you know this is one rockin’ show you’ll never forget.”

“Since their debut in 2016, The Bronx Wanderers have created the magic of rock and roll and connected with audiences from all over,” said Damian Costa, vice president of entertainment operations at Caesars Entertainment. “Their showmanship will be a fantastic addition to The LINQ Hotel & Casino.”

With superlative vocals and musicianship, dynamic enthusiasm and a genuine love of the music they perform, The Bronx Wanderers recreate the magic of the era and build an energetic bond with their audience. The show tells the stories and plays the music that will take you as close as you can get to having lived the actual experience.

Bronx Wanderers moving to Mat Franco Theater at Linq in ‘19

The Bronx Wanderers’ very name indicates movement. And the popular family act is on the move, hauling out of Windows Showroom at Bally’s and into the Linq Hotel’s Mat Franco Theater in January.

Making official what had been expected for weeks, producers Alan and Kathi Glist have secured a preview opening of 9 p.m. Jan. 28, with a media premiere targeted for mid-February. The show’s weekly show times follow the same type of fluctuating schedule employed during Frank Marino’s Divas Las Vegas residency in the theater: 9 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays; 8 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays, and 4 p.m. Sundays (tickets are $79, $89 and $109 for VIP; fees not included).

11517995_web1_BRONXSOULREVIEW-NOV04-16_012.jpg

As previously reported, the Bronx Wanderers’ final show at Windows is Dec. 23. Their next room is significantly larger (the Franco room seats 650 compared with about 200 at Windows), and the scale of the production will be larger for the guys in 2019. But as they say, the act has performed a bigger show to larger crowds across the country before settling at Windows in October 2016.

“We started in performing arts centers where our smallest crowds were 500-700, up to 2,200 seats,” the band and show’s founder, Vinny Adinolfi, said after Sunday night’s performance. “So to be in a 200-seat room was kind of a change for us.” Guitarist, keyboardist and singer Vinny “Vin A.” Adinolfi III added, “Wer’e excited to be back on a bigger stage, and excited that Caesars (Entertainment) is behind us.”

Bronx Wanderers, which includes sibling Nick Adinolfi on drums and a lineup of top-level musicians, is an energy-fueled, concert-style production of rock classics dating to their “patron saint,” Dion DiMucci of Dion & The Belmonts, whose every mention from the stage is met with a chorus of angels. The production covers the family’s roots in the Bronx and friendships with those from “the neighborhood,” including actor Chazz Palminteri and Tony Orlando.

Since arriving in Las Vegas, the act has become close with Wayne Newton,who has also headlined at Windows and is due to close his run Dec. 30 as the venue is converted into a showroom dedicated to magic acts.

11517995_web1_BRONXSOULREVIEW-NOV04-16_008.jpg

“Playing here the past two years, Wayne Newton has been a dream come true,” the elder Adinolfi said. “When I told him we were going to the Linq, he hugged me and said, ‘You know, things happen for a reason. This is going to be great for you.’ Ever since we arrived here, we’ve been surrounded by the greatest people.”

Onstage, the act plans a more extensive video and lighting production. Such a song as Billy Joel’s “Scenes From an Italian Restaurant” will now play to matching images of New York City. One highlight, a video montage of surf scenes performed to the theme from “Hawaii Five-0,” can be further developed.

“The video walls and lighting package is going to take the show to a whole new level,” Vinny Adinolfi said. “Each show will be its own little adventure for us to play.”

THE BRONX WANDERERS TO FEATURE SPECIAL GUEST PERFORMERS KEITH THOMPSON AND BEAU CASSIDY

LAS VEGAS (August 20, 2018) – The Bronx Wanderers will be joined by two special guests this week as the group’s Vin A. will be taking a much-deserved vacation.

It actually took two people to fill in for the very talented Vin A.! From Monday, Aug. 20 through Sunday, Aug. 26, well-known musical director, arranger and composer Keith Thompson will fill in on the keyboard and background vocals, with Beau Cassidy as a featured vocalist.

“Because of the parallel of being a part of a musical family and legacy and his great talent, Beau was a natural! Having produced Beau’s dad, David Cassidy, and The Partridge Family, Vinny Adinolfi is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Beau. Vinny will also perform some of his own favorite tunes,” said Kathi Glist, one of the show’s producers.
