Italo & the Passions is a band you will never forget. Five out of step dudes that have lived rock’n’roll longer than most twice their age. From the streets of New York, to the mountains of Virginia and Pennsylvania, they came together as one in the foothills of the Carolinas. Learning life on the stage and road, not letting school, or any other bring them down. Casey Taylor, Donnie Ross Seabolt, Drew Pack, Kyle Fletcher, and Italo have been playing in bands as early as the second grade. Sharing the stage with such artist as The Ramones, The Misfits, Dick Dale, and many other legendary acts before even reaching the age of sixteen. Moving from their hardcore-punk background to a more sexy, groovy, gritty, soulful rock’n’roll,in the veins of The Faces, The Rollings Stones, Joe Cocker, and Otis Redding they started Italo and the Passions in 2011. With a live performance that will keep you in awe, there is no stage to big or small. Through their raw energy and honest words, Italo and the Passions channel the true spirit of Rock'n'Roll. This is a band you don’t want to miss. Their debut album will make its world premiere spring 2014. Don’t Think, Just Feel…
