Rock & Roll Reignited With Not Fade Awayby Jared Mancuso and Nick Gallardo
This is Rock & Roll Reignited! Inspired by the legendary music of artists like Buddy Holly, Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, and more, this new revue reignites Rock & Roll classics with sizzle, showmanship, and style.
Fresh off their national tour, Not Fade Away has performed to sold out theatres in over 150 cities. Now, the four-piece band brings the best of the ‘50s and ‘60s to Sarasota with such hits as “It’s So Easy,” “Rave On,” “Johnny B. Goode,” and more.
AURORA DUBOIS started off her musical journey playing piano as a young child but fell in love with the idea of playing bass just a few years ago, when she saw In Rainbows Live in the Basement by Radiohead. She has been busy playing the bass ever since. Outside of Not Fade Away, she started her own cover band centered around the music of Kruangbin, she has joined an original post-rock group, and put together an all-girl funk/soul group.
MIKE GALLARDO is thrilled to join Not Fade Away at FST! In his downtime, Mike tours with his band, Nightstand, who are slated to release their debut album, Spruce, this year. In addition to drums, Mike is an avid bassist and guitarist.
NICK GALLARDO is an established concert entertainer emulating the Rock 'n' Roll greats with live tributes Forever Everly, Valens to Valli, and the brand new Lucy and Ricky LIVE! Nick has also performed on over 40 cruises internationally portraying Frankie Valli with December ’63. Favorite roles include Leaf Coneybear in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (MAC Award Win, Best Actor), Duke in The Great American Trailer Park Musical (MAC Award Win, Best Musical), and Jinx in Forever Plaid.
JARED MANCUSO has been a performer and musician most of his life, with a degree in acting from Marymount Manhattan College. Some favorite roles include Billy Lawlor in 42nd Street, Mark in Rent, Dennis in All Shook Up, and Leo Bloom in The Producers. Jared has performed nationally as Buddy Holly in several productions of Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story since 2013 and started Not Fade Away in 2016.
