14 Aug August 14, 2015 – 600th Show! Tenor of Illusions Joe Spinella
Joe Spinella – Opera Tenor Performing Magic and Las Vegas Show Entrepreneur
Joe Spinella was recently considered for a Grammy Award in three categories; Best New Artist, Song of the Year and Producer of the Year. And, Joe was named one of the top 5 greatest new breed of tenors in the United States! Joe is a tenor, songwriter, conductor, and is now building a stage extravaganza for Vegas. His tenor voice was described by Town Topics as “a solid Metropolitan Opera level performer.” Joe was discovered by one of the Metropolitan Opera conductors and was invited to work with Metropolitan Opera coaches in NYC. This began his regular sessions with Joan Dorneman, Luciano Pavarotti’s vocal coach of thirty years and Mignon Dunn, retired MET Opera Star, now vocal instructor. He is also a master magician, complete with illusions of his own. Joe’s newest endeavor, Tenor of Illusions’ “IllusionAria,” is a fusion of great Italian, Spanish and English music, with “David Copperfield” style magic. The show has been written about in U.S.A. Today, the Southwest Italian Magazine, U.S. News and World Report, and the GIA Mondo newspaper which is distributed in the U.S., London, Switzerland and Italy. Joseph has made three singles in the crossover pop genre under the producing/songwriting talents of Joe Vulpis, Lady Gaga’s first songwriter and producer. Joe Vulpis wrote two songs for Joe, “Trust in Me” and “Never Stopped Loving You.”
This show is our 600th! So, we wanted to spend a few minutes talking about the highs and lows of being an entrepreneur. Jim has a special 20 minute monologue for you to consider. Hope you enjoy!
