The Bands of Jimmy D'Angelo
June 23, 2012
NEMO (The New England Musician's Outlet) will present a reunion of The Bands of Jimmy D'Angelo featuring the original members of The Joneses, DNZ, Mad Angel, Pretty Poison, August and Deep 6.
In the late 60s, there was a Worcester band that stood alone in popularity. The Joneses were regarded as "the coolest band around" by anyone's standards. Jimmy D'Angelo (guitar/vocals) will be reunited with brother Joe D'Angelo (guitar/vocals), drummer Rob Zicaro and bass player Marty Norris for their first appearance together in over forty years. The Joneses were later known as DNZ.
Jimmy D'Angelo will also be joined by all the original members of Mad Angel, featuring bassist/vocalist Donni Thayer. Drummer Louie Santoro and guitarist/vocalist Paul Tringuk will then join Jimmy and Donni for a reunion of the band Pretty Poison. Bass player Al Gallo, who plays in Jimmy D'Angelo's present band, Deep 6 (with drummer Dave Balcom), will take the place of bassist Jamie Pease (who died in 2006) and be joined by guitarist Scott Hanley and Louie Santoro (drums) for a reunion of the band August.
Very special guests for this show will be Farren Butcher, Inc. featuring guitar/vocalist Charlie Farren (Joe Perry Project & Farrenheit) and guitar/vocalist Jon Butcher (Johanna Wild & Jon Butcher Axis).
