Sacramento, Calif. - In 1964, the world was deluged by a flood of mind-altering variations on a relatively new theme called Rock and Roll. The Beau Brummels, led by the rich, moody vocals of superlative front man, Sal Valentino, exploded on the music scene with the Top 20 hit Laugh, Laugh.
Considered the first American band to respond to The British Invasion and ironically, pioneer Country-Rock music, the Beau Brummels went on to release such classic top 40 hits as Just A Little, Don't Talk To Strangers, and You Tell Me Why.
As The British Invasion evolved into a whole new era of psychedelia, The Beau Brummels decided it was time to pursue their separate musical muses with Sal going on to lead the big-band musical experience known as Stoneground.
But this is the 21st Century and today, Sal Valentino is back sounding better than ever. Sal's haunting voice is one of the most recognizable in music, prompting Ritchie Unterbeger, critic for The Rolling Stone and All Music Guide to claim:
"Sal Valentino owns one of the finest voices in mid-60's Rock and Roll"
Currently fronting The Sal Valentino Band, Sal has taken his 40 years of musical experience and crafted an incredibly unique sound featuring re-worked versions of his biggest hits and new songs penned especially for him by Sacramento's fastest rising star, Jackie Greene.
Many of the songs performed will be featured on Sal's up-coming, nationally released CD due in late Fall.
Sal's ability to craft great songs into uniquely individual experiences while drawing on his huge reservoir of classic Beau Brummels and Stoneground hits, make his performances compelling and sometimes nostalgic ventures into that rare place that only the great vocalists of our time dare to go.
