La Grange-based Johnny Alletto Band are set to bring their brand of original pop/rock music to the House of Blues, 329 North Dearborn, Chicago, Illinois, on Saturday, April 23rd, 2016. Headlining act Johnny Alletto Band are supporting their CD release entitled, “Geronimo“. Opening acts include, The Lucky Dutch, Margo Sky, Deep Fayed, RashidaBriana, and Rascal Martinez. Doors open at 8:00pm and tickets are available at LiveNation.com.
“The House of Blues is one of the greatest venues this city has to offer,” says Johnny Alletto, lead vocalist, guitarist, and founder of Johnny Alletto Band. “I’ve been dreaming to headline there since I was just a boy studying voice, and I know I speak for the band when I say we are all stoked!”
Alletto’s formal voice training carved the path for an eclectic journey across various types of bands and a cappella groups during his upbringing. His classical experience and pop sensibility sculpted him into a singer/songwriter who combines a warm, harmony-driven sound with relentlessly contagious hooks.
Life is too short not to take chances, especially on something that defines who you are. Alletto is the perfect depiction of a risk taker, and fortunately, it has paid off. After spending years as a trader for an investment firm, Alletto decided to make one final trade, to follow his heart and define himself as a professional musician. Alletto has shared the stage with such national acts as Barenaked Ladies, Sister Hazel, Matt Nathanson, Third Eye Blind, and Lifehouse. And, as would any true baseball enthusiast, the performances he holds closest to his heart are singing the National Anthem before the “Cross-town Classics” at US Cellular and Wrigley Field respectively. Now, together with bandmates Jeremy Gordon (lead guitar and backing vocals), Joe Magdaleno (bass guitar and backing vocals), and Tim Jones (drums), find themselves headlining the House of Blues Chicago.
