They say you have to suffer to sing the blues, play hard to do rock, and possess the wounded heart of an urban player to pull off soul, and Boccigalupe & the Badboys, straight out of the gritty musical history of Asbury Park, New Jersey fit that lofty bill. Boccigalupe & The Badboys are not a tribute band or copy band but the REAL THING. Fronted by legendary ASBURY rocker Tony Amato a.k.a Boccigalupe the band epitomizes the determination and drive that great musicians feed off of to produce incredible live performances.
