The dance will feature The Tony Cafiero Band, generously sponsored by Laticrete International, Inc.. Anthony Cafiero is an accomplished pianist heralding to Connecticut ’s shoreline from the New York City area in 1987. Mr. Cafiero’s musical versatility allows for him to exercise his musical talents across a large range of formats and styles and have afforded him the opportunity to play with some of the best of bands and area musicians in Connecticut . Additionally, Mr. Cafiero enjoys singing jazz and popular “standards” when soloing for private parties, cocktail hours, retirement communities, and for upscale restaurants and bistros. Employing a modified piano style and technique made popular by Fat’s Waller called “stride piano”, patrons often comment on the uniqueness of the sound as well as the smooth marriage of songs from a bygone era to this type of playing. Mr. Cafiero is also busy working as a piano and Hammond organ “sideman” for many popular area bands including but not limited to the "Anthony Cafiero Band", “West of Yesterday”, the “To Dye For band”, “Whiskey River”, the “Bart Bryant Band” “Garry and the Moodswingers” and the “Elm City Blues Project”.
