    What a fantastic concert last night (8/4/17) in our gazebo concert series. It was a great evening, fantastic harmony, extraordinary personalities, such a a wide variety of music spanning all generations, a Motown medley that was out of this world, and even special effects. So enjoyed singing along and had a wonderful time throughout your very entertaining show. The Symphonics aim to please, and they certainly did! Hope to have you gentlemen back again.

    Mela, It is our pleasure each and every night to step on the stage and give our best. We sing from our hearts. Mike, Jason, Howard and myself have a magical sound. We practice every week and always add new songs. We do not play off a set list but we are very good at reading our guests and play the songs that we feel they want to hear. I make a lot of our tracks and there is a lot of detail that is put in to create our sound. We have over 3000 tracks. If we had a band that would add around 4 to 6 pieces and put our cost factor so high we could not play small venues. Your kind words will stay with us every night we step on the stage and that will help us give an even better show. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU.

    When I walked into the ballroom Saturday night and these guys were waiting to begin their show, I couldn’t help thinking, “where are the rest of them”. All the other oldies groups that I have seen in the past have at least seven, sometimes even ten, musicians in their ensemble. However, once these humble gentlemen started to sing, I was absolutely mesmerized. I am not a big dancer, but there was no way that I could stay in my seat with these four entertaining showmen. Their music is so eclectic that there isn’t any age group that wouldn’t enjoy these outstanding performers. There is no way ever that a DJ track could ever be used as a substitution. As your name proclaims, you are SYMPHONIC. Thank you for a wonderful evening full of fun, and I hope to see you again real soon!

Another Sold Out Night 

The Cameos, Park Ave, Ray Cetrell, DJ Augie, M.C Johnny Mangia and The Symphonics played to a sold out crowd at The Brookside last Saturday night. 460 people packed the newly renovated hall. Everyone enjoyed the entertainment but the service was slow and some dinners were not served until 11:00 pm. Another show is in the works for October and a venue has not been determined. We will let you know when the details are complete.

Next question, Why don't we use a band? 



This is a simple one. Musicians that play the kind of music we play usually are playing music for a living. They work 3 to 5 nights a week and go where the money is. We are limited in our gigs because we all have day jobs and family's. The next issue is cost, if we added a band our cost would be at a price that we could only do large venues. Using electronic tracks (not mp3's or studio tracks) we can control each instrument. Most all groups use some kind of sequence or have more than 8 people in the band and that brings us back to cost. Our music is played on Roland MIDI sequencers and we have 2 on at all times. The more people you have in a band the more opinions you have to deal with which at times creates more trouble than it's worth. The last reason is that for all the years we have each been playing, we have connected with so many people that they enjoy the songs we do. We are always learning new songs from yesterday to today and getting new fans every night. We also do sound from the stage and have 10 mixes going plus 2 main mixes. We are happy making a fair amount of money and still able to play local venues.
Thank you to everyone who supports The Symphonics. We plan to give you our best each and every night and remember we are a vocal group with tracks.

Until next time,

Stevie V

Question was, Who were the original Symphonics. 

The group started in 2002. The members were; Steve Vervaet, Michael Schiavo, Rich Gutches and Joel Katz. Joel left the group after a few months and was replaced by Gary Bonner who wrote the song Happy Together and performed by Flo and Eddie (The Turtles). Gary left the group after 6 months and was replaced by Ron Febba. The group continued on until 2011 when it was revamped to the current lineup. Steve Vervaet, Michael Schiavo, Jason Gecek and Howard Hulin. We should have called the group MAGIC. It take's 7 people or more to create the sound that we produce with 4. We found that we can give a great show at an affordable price. We can perform from small parties to major events.         

The picture below is from our first gig.

Rich, Steve, Michael and Gary.
