and the Big City Swing Committee
Vinnie Corbo is a well respected and predominant member of the Italian community. As president of the Grandsons of Italy, he has spent the past decade perpetuating Italian heritage and values. In 2009, he was awarded Italian Man of the Year for his charitable work and leadership.
Vinnie's family immigrated to America in 1903 from the small town of Avigliano near Naples in Italy. His father, Vincent Corbo, Sr. was the first generation to attend college receiving a Ph.D. in chemical engineering and eventually becoming the CEO of one the the country's largest corporations proving the American dream is truly possible for Italian immigrants.
Vinnie continues in his father's footsteps bringing Italian-American music and culture to audiences everywhere.

Now That's Happy Music, Folks!
Big City Swing Committee performs the classic Italian songs we all know and love. Their repertoire features hits by Louis Prima, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Sam Butera and Nino Rota. Your guests will enjoy singing and clapping along with the band as they sing in English and Italian!
The band also performs original Italian songs in the style of traditional Italian classics with youthful energy. These songs can only be heard by Big City Swing Committee. The songs "Mama's Sauce" and "Yell If You're Italian" never fail to get everyone up and dancing.
