I was invited to review the Bronx Wanderers FIRST show in the Mat Franco Theater at the LINQ Hotel. Vinnie Adinolfi and his son Vin showed me backstage, behind the scenes and we all stood on the extra-large stage where I filmed their introduction for my show. This stage was much wider with more depth than at their previous hotel which now allows greater production value and they really took advantage of that!
We not only hear the songs but watch the Bronx Wanderers recreate the feeling, the mood of each song with fast moving, multiple sequences of dramatic effects, colors, lights, and imagery continually changing on three larger-than-life screens.
Vinny and Vin have fun with the musical numbers, adding their own interpretations and seemingly play with each song. Their emotional solos and duos are extraordinary, you never know what to expect at their shows.
The Bronx Wanderers perform the songs of the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, including songs from Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, Dion, Queen, Billy Joel and Bruno Mars and up to today.
I met with Vinny and Vin to interview them backstage in the Green Room, although it was not green, which will appear in my next article.
The MAT FRANCO THEATER
Michael Jackson, Shakira, Britney Spears, Cher, the Blues Brothers, and many other stars performed on this stage, in the room now called the Mat Franco Theater.
Before or after you see the Bronx Wanderers at the LINQ Hotel, there’s the High Roller, a 550 foot-tall observation wheel, an Auto Collection, and much more in the adjacent LINQ Promenade Shopping Center with their own restaurants and fun.
