Description: Saxophonist, singer, and bandleader Ray Gelato has been instrumental in the swing revival in the UK, taking cues from legendary entertainers like Louis Prima. Grabbing the best of jump blues and the Italian songbook, Gelato and his band have returned long-lost favorites by Paulo Conte, Fred Buscaglione, and Renato Carasone to their rightful place: lighting up the dancefloor with mambo italiano. Backing Gelato on this special evening is Philly's swingin' big band extraordinaire, the City Rhythm Orchestra.
