Tammi Savoy & Chris Casello at Twang Fest #4 - Milan, Italy


Twang Fest # 4 June 14, 2019 - Peyote Cafè, Magenta (MI) The Twang Fest returns to Peyote Cafè in Magenta, the fourth edition of the Italian twang guitar festival. It was 1957 when an American guitarist, Duane Eddy, started to forcefully play the bass strings of his Gretsch "Chet Atkins", after having slipped the amplifier into a metal container to increase the echo effect. The sound that came out was called "twang" by the listeners, as if to define the nervous impact of those strings that rang on their turntables. From that moment the "twang" has become an obsession for rock and roll, surf, rockabilly, blues and jazz guitarists (just think of the "twangoso" sound of Jim Campilongo). And the Twang Fest, with the excuse of this verb onomatopoeia, wants to celebrate a musical world, bringing together, in the same evening, some guitarists who love and practice twang daily in their musical activity.

This year the exceptional guest is the great CHRIS CASELLO, guitarist from Detroit, but who lived for about 20 years in Nashville, now residing in Chicago. One of the best guitarists in the world, specializing on the streets of Nashville to the sound of country, rockabilly, surf and vintage blues. It combines great technique with the art of entertainment. His telecaster will show you the stars.

From Slovenia there will be the young and talented Urban Zotel. Guitarist who trained on Jimmy Bryant records but also at the court of TK Smith, Tommy Harkenrider and Kid Ramos. Western swing to the nth degree for this young European guitar ace From Milan there will be Marco "Python" Fecchio. A veteran of the southern sound of the United States, devoted to the sound of Ry Cooder, lover of chicken picking.

Guests of the evening will be Tammi Savoy, a singer from Chicago, very young and talented, who recently received the Ameripolitan Award for best singer in the world of rockabilly for women. Next to the stage a Vintage Corner where some really rare and valuable guitars, brought by C’esco’s Corner and Vintage Choice, will drool those present.

The end of the evening, as for the three previous editions, will see everyone on stage for a thrilling final guitar twang session. In short, if Duane Eddy were here we are sure he would be very proud of how his "idea" of 1957 evolved after 62 years.

Australian Tour at Meeniyan Town Hall

Tammi Savoy & The Chris Casello Combo

Friday 5th July, 2019. 8pm

MEENIYAN TOWN HALL

Imagine a young woman with a powerful soulful voice that nails the classic 40’s,50s and early 60s R&B and rock and roll sounds. Match that with a great stage presence and drop-dead gorgeous looks with a perfect visual adherence to mid-century vintage style. Now combine her with the killer rockabilly instrumentation of slapping upright bass, swinging drums and virtuoso guitar and you’ve got Tammi Savoy and The Chris Casello Combo.
Tammi grew up listening to classic rhythm and Blues, rock ’n’ roll and jazz. She is the baby sister of the multi-platinum contemporary R&B Group “Next”. Tammi however digs deep into the roots of American soul. She effortlessly captures the feel and sounds of Ruth Brown, Laverne Baker, Sarah Vaughan and other greats. Tammi Savoy is also the 2019 Ameripolitan Award recipient for Female Rockabilly Artist.
Chris Casello is a veteran of Detroit, Nashville and Chicago music scenes. He was the 2017 Ameripolitan Award recipient for Musician of the Year and voted Nashville Scene’s “Honk Tonk Hero” and Critic’s Choice in 2012. Chris is also a 2nd generation inductee to The Rockabilly Hall of Fame, and enjoyed long working relationships with ‘50s greats including Johnny Powers, Jack Scott, Billy Lee Riley and the truly legendary Bo Diddley. He has also worked professionally with Wanda Jackson, Wayne Hancock, Marty Stuart, Rosie Flores and others. He has performed everywhere from The Lincoln Centre to the Grand Ol’ Opry.
After meeting at a gig in Chicago a couple of years ago, Tammi and Chris started jamming and recording. The recordings from those sessions started receiving an overwhelmingly enthusiastic response from those who were privy to hearing them. The group has released a six song CDEP and a 7” vinyl record on Swelltune Records and has made appearances at Viva Las Vegas, The Nashville Boogie, The New England Shake-Up and numerous other festivals – from rockabilly, blues and jazz to hot rod shows – in the U.S. and around the world.

Tammi Savoy & The CC Combo at Symco Weekender - Symco, WI

Every second weekend in August, the little town of Symco, WI comes roaring to life in a celebration unlike any other.


For years, traditional hot rods and kustoms from around the Midwest have gathered together on the Unionville Thresheree grounds to step back in time. Behind them, they pull Shasta and Scottie campers loaded with vintage luggage. The roof racks are strapped with mid-century Rollfast and ColorFlo bicycles. Our extended family comes together in a very unique setting.


The Union Thresherman's Club was formed back in the days when Symco was still known as Union. It was in this setting that Larry Werth started building the little town of Unionville along the banks of the picturesque Little Wolf River. In 2017 we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Symco UTC . The half century of hard work that has passed is a testament to the Werths and the UTC, and their commitment to preserving history. The Union town hall, built in 1896, was transferred to its current location where it is known today as The Unionville Saloon. Various buildings that are now spread throughout the town were relocated from around Waupaca County. The new structures such as the blacksmith shop and the entrance barn were built from lumber cut from the working saw mill on the grounds. These buildings are filled with antiques, equipment, and advertising from a simpler time. Oversized display barns feature dozens of running vintage tractors and some of the largest Fairbanks-Morse engines operating today. Overlooking all of this is the bridge that once spanned the Little Wolf River on Hwy 22 in front of the grounds.


Each summer, the rumble of open headers and the sounds of rockabilly fill the air. The smell of delicious food drifts on the breeze, past the gear heads tuning their mini bikes for the drags on the dirt track. Fellas enjoy a cold PBR while their gals browse through vendors and look at new attire for the pin-up contest. Guys wander the swap meet in search of that illusive final piece for their current build. From the vintage camping area comes the laughter of families cooling off in the river. This unique setting provides the backdrop for the most anticipated annual event in the Midwest . The Staff of Symco Hotrods & Kustoms, united with the UTC, are proud to be continuing what we have achieved here over the years. We look forward to sharing this special place with generations to come.


Symco Hotrod & Kustom Weekender would like to thank the hundreds of volunteers and the UTC staff who donate their time to help make this weekend special. Without them, we could not put on this show. We are also very grateful for the support from multiple car clubs in Wisconsin and surrounding states. This many clubs united to keep this show alive only adds to the unique nature of our event. Most of all, a huge thank you to our brothers and sisters throughout the Midwest who drive their cars and share them with us. Without you, there is no show.

Soul Spectacular Aretha Franklin Tribute at Fitzgerald's - Berwyn, IL

Soul Spectacular: A Tribute to Aretha & the Classic Soul Era

Sat, Apr 06 2019, 9:00pm - $15 - Tickets

Doors open at 7 pm.

Aretha Franklin was a trailblazing icon and virtuosic musician whose voice cut straight to the heart of things. She was, in the words of Billy Preston, “the best f*ckin’ singer this f*cked-up country has ever produced.” An extraordinary talent deserves no less of a tribute than a full-on dance-your-ass-off party experience—a revue that harkens back to Motown’s Motortown Revue or The James Brown Show. An event!

Chicago’s Soul supergroup Soul Spectacular honors her departed majesty with Soul Spectacular: A Tribute to Aretha & the Classic Soul Era. On April 6th, 2019, they’ll be be bringing the party to Fitzgerald’s with a star-studded line-up of the city’s best young singers, all paying tribute to the Queen and the music of her era. Sam Trump, Meghan Murphy, Elisa Latrice, Tammi Savoy and the Spectaculars—a funky-as-hell rhythm section complete with costumes, horns, and back-up singers—back this rotating revue of Chicago’s best R&B singers. And when we say best, we mean best.

After years of putting on shows with The Second City, The Kennedy Center, as well as the band he founded JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound, guitarist/director Billy Bungeroth and master musical director, improviser, and Second City alum Julie Nichols started to explore the idea of resurrecting the art of the Revue: concerts that have the thought and direction of a theatrical experience. The result is an homage, a celebration, a cathartic night of music and dancing as this group bands together to send off one of the greatest Soul singers to ever walk the Earth.

Ameripolitan Awards - The Guesthouse at Graceland, Memphis,TN

Ameripolitan Awards - The Guesthouse at Graceland, Memphis,TN

Ameripolitan – This thought provoking word is intended to be an invitation to discuss the future of the music that is important to so many of us. By leaving the hopelessly compromised word “country” behind and exclusively using the term “Ameripolitan”, our intention is to reestablish this music’s own unique identity, elevate its significance and help reinvigorate it creatively. Also, because of our place in history, we have the privilege and responsibility to pass a great musical tradition on to future generations who will otherwise have no direct connection to this music.

We believe this extra effort is necessary because, for the majority of people under the age 50 years old, their country music experience has been vastly different. As far back as the 1970s, corporations began descending upon country music. Executives, disdainful of the great musical tradition they had inherited, were placed in charge of country music. With ruthless efficiency they separated the music from its roots, redefined the brand, until finally, they succeeded in remaking country music their own superficial image. Today, the only remaining vestige of tradition in country music is the name.

The days of debating the definition of what is, and what is not country music now seem irrelevant. No one involved in producing country music today can even begin to comprehend the argument. Alabama and Lynyrd Skynyrd are classic country to them. 

In our opinion, it is time to concede the point, leave them all to their own devices, and put the whole unpleasant chapter behind us. Once we have stopped wasting our time defending the “good name” of country music or decrying the ill-suited alternatives, we can go back to where the record skipped and continue on from there.

The Ameripolitan Music genre is here. We invite all of you who love Ameripolitan Music to help spread the word.
