Thank you all for the wonderful feedback!
A.A. from New Haven, Ct: You guys blew us away. What a fun evening! Please let us know if you play in the area again!!
T.M. from New Milford, Ct: Can’t believe you learned our “special song” on such short notice. It really put the party over the top! Rockin’ music and dynamite vocals
J.W. from Easton, Ct: I just can’t thank you enough for playing at my parents 40th Anniversary party. Your professionalism and enthusiasm made the evening a success beyond our expectations.
P.J. from Branford, Ct: Give me a break!! No, I mean it. I need a break. I’m exhausted from all the dancing and singing we did yesterday. We’ve been throwing our annual party for about 11 years now and we’ve never had a band that invited us to come up and perform with them. My kids were blown away. They never knew Mom could sing! Thanks for helping to rekindle those “glory days”. See you next year for sure!!
T.L. from Eastchester, NY: Wow, what a great selection of tunes! Thanks for making the night a tremendous success.
D.L. from Stratford, Ct: Caught you guys at the Windmill last night with a bunch of my buds. You let my brother come up and play harmonica with you. How come nobody does that anymore? You guys are old school in the best possible way. Thanks for a great show and letting Tony jam with you. He’s a local star this morning!!!
B.W. from Oxford, Ct: Wish we didn’t have a noise curfew. We would have kept your band through the night. We really appreciate all the “extras” you gave us (special songs, a little overtime, etc.). You guys are real pros. Thanks
And my favorite: Really??? Great balance of sound, drive and volume with killer vocals. Something very rare today. Did I say rare? Let me elaborate. Not only do you sound great but all of you sing. OK, that’s pretty good. Every one of you is a very accomplished musician. That’s also pretty good. Selection of tunes ranges from classic rock to blues to southern rock (a little something for everyone). Bass player is the lead vocalist. Now, that’s something you don’t see! Bass player/lead vocalist also rips some awesome FLUTE SOLOS-UNHEARD OF. Absolutely loved the gig. Will be seeing you often. YOU ROCK.
Raging Gracefully is a four piece classic rock band from the Fairfield/New Haven county area in Ct.
Utilizing drums, guitar, bass, keys and an occasional flute, they cover some of your favorite hits/groups from the 50's-70's (and beyond) including The Beatles, Rolling Stones, CCR, The Band, Santana, Procol Harem, the Animals, Jethro Tull and many more.
Frontman and bassist, Steve Cinque, is the musical director and lead vocalist for the group.
Steve drives the band with powerful vocals and solid bass lines and even throws in a few flute solos.
Possessing a substantial vocal range, Steve can handle anything from a soulful ballad by the Eagles to a gut-wrenching rock tune by Bob Seger. A true veteran of the music industry, Steve has played throughout the Eastern U.S. and Internationally over his extensive career.
A native of NYC, Steve now makes his home in New Haven, Ct.
Drummer, Mike Bimonte, keeps everyone on track with his tight beats and adds his vocals to a few songs.
Mike has more than 25 years experience working as a percussionist in Community Theatre and has worked in more than 100 productions. Over his career, Mike has opened for Tower of Power, Alexa Ray Joel, Mavis Staples and Frank Zappa's Project Object Band and has played in some high-profile venues including the Shubert theater, Woolsey Hall and the New Haven Music & Arts Festival.
Mike calls East Haven, Ct his home.
George Leka, on keys, provides those classic piano, organ and string accompaniments that identified so many songs from that era and picks up some vocals along the way, also. The brother of the late performer/producer/song writer Paul Leka (most notably Na, Na, Hey, Hey, Kiss Him Goodbye – Steam and Green Tambourine-The Lemon Pipers), George was destined to be a musician. George really “struts his stuff” on classic songs like Whiter Shade Of Pale (Procol Harem), Locomotive Breath (Jethro Tull) and House Of The Rising Sun (Animals).
George and Steve have collaborated on several other musical projects over the years. Trumbull, Ct is where George hangs his hat.
Guitarist, Ron Jovanelly, brings a fourth vocal to the mix and adds the signature sounds of groups like Santana, CCR and The Hollies. Another veteran of the music scene, Ron and Steve have also collaborated on projects together over the years. Ron has the uncanny ability to capture the “feel” of artists like Carlos Santana, John Fogarty and Stevie Ray Vaughn which really adds to the musical experience.
Ron is a resident of Milford, Ct
