Gino Paoli, Angelo Branduardi, Fiorella Mannoia, Pino Daniele, and Domenico Modugno are only some of the renowned artists to which this project will pay tribute. In an event that combines the charming and soulful Marchese’s voice with Pejrolo’s talent and creativity in discovering new sounds and atmospheres, the audience will assist in an innovative, unique concert.

Prinze George
Julietta

Maryland-based Prinze George is Kenny Grimm (production/instrumental), Naomi Almquist (vocals), and Isabelle De Leon (drums). Grimm and Almquist grew up together in Prince George's County, where they met De Leon while she was in college. After forming the band in 2013, they exploded onto the indie scene with their breakthrough single, "Victor." The song rose to no. 1 on the Hype Machine charts, and both it and the band won the attention of music blogs, fans, and labels from all over the world. "Victor" was also selected for the movie soundtrack of Warner Brothers's biggest European release in 2014, Honig Im Kopf

Through My Headphones! calls Prinze George "a band that has all the makings of being one of the most talked-about new acts." With their follow-up single "This Time" trending to the top 10 on Hype Machine and the release of their most recent single, "Make Me," the band has been compared to Lana Del Rey and MS MR.

New York native Julietta takes us on a dreamy escape with her electro-soul-pop concoctions. Her initial training in musical theater set the foundation for the precise control of her expansive vocal range, which, coupled with the airy synths and deep beats (programmed by a team of producers), create a powerfully ethereal sound that flirts with trip-hop and the intensely mysterious atmospheres of Lana Del Rey.
