The Vince Chiarelli Band

Vince Chiarelli comes from a bloodline of musical tradition. Starting when he was 18 months old, Vince showed everyone his singing ability and musical talent. Not only has he inherited his grandfather’s name, but is also keeping the legacy of his grandfather’s music alive. Vince embraces a philosophy in life that he adapted from his grandfather: “Be happy for everyone, and everyone will be happy for you.”

Vince’s grandfather, Vince Chiarelli Sr., started a record label in 1967 that Vince runs today. Vince grew up hearing stories of his grandfather playing in Nashville, writing songs and being well connected to the Chicago music scene. In Italy, Vince Sr. played with the famous Italian musician Franco LiCausi, who is known in the U.S. for writing songs in The Godfather movies. Vince studied this type of music with his grandfather and was taught a style of music that is truly authentic to the Italian-American culture.
