With no more than a name originating from Andy Kaufman’s character in the hit television show “Taxi” and a big dream, the Vic Ferrari Band was founded in 1988. No one had any idea that the dream would turn into over 23 years of entertaining audiences in every type of show imaginable.
With over 2300 shows under the belt, the band has played a large assortment of venues ranging from Rockfest, Octoberfest, and Summerfest to weddings, casinos, and corporate events across the U.S., the Caribbean, and Mexico.
A love of music and a passion to entertain has driven the seven piece ensemble to excel in winning over any audience. Playing a mix of classic rock from the 60’s to today, and even tossing in a little country, the band is known for sounding as good as the original artist and sometimes even better.
The desire to always find a new and exciting way to entertain, the band has created the “Symphony on the Rocks”. The show is played five times a year with a 28 piece symphony combining forces to create a unique awe inspiring spectacle unlike anything else ever seen.
