About the band –

Tony Sgro – Musical Director , Guitar, Vocals – Tony has had the opportunity to be in many different bands, switching between drums, keyboards, guitar, and vocals. Sgro has written several original songs for films including, The Neighbor, Take Back The Night, and Back Fork. He is now honored to be the musical director of this amazing, one-of-a-kind band! The idea was to create something that no one has done in Las Vegas. To tell the story of how Italian and American artists changed the rock and roll landscape. Thus was born Limoncello! Partnering with some of the most talented musicians in the country made it all come together. Now, playing guitar and contributing vocals, Limoncello has become the most unique and innovative band to have come around in a long time. Get ready to rock! Italian style..

He brings with him a level of talent and experience that is beyond reproach.  Being Italian, from New York, and having the coolest first name ever, how could we not have included him?

Darrell, who is based in Las Vegas, spent several years with Cirque Du Soleil as the bassist for their popular “Mystere” show in Las Vegas.

Highly sought after, she has also performed lead vocals and toured with preeminent bands, including Meat Loaf (2014- his final tour in 2016) and Dweezil Zappa (2016-2019). After graduating from the University of Michigan’s Musical Theatre program, she has appeared in over 50 stage plays and musicals.  She enjoys the privilege of having performed in all 50 states and in 15 countries.

Anthony White – Drums, Vocals – Anthony is an outstanding drummer, guitarist, and vocalist. Also hailing from New York, he started his musical journey at the age of 16. He moved to Las Vegas and joined forces with Mark Slaughter, and formed his first band Xcursion. Xcursion recorded 2 albums and had a huge following throughout southern Nevada. When he was 21, he recorded demos and played throughout Southern California. Ultimately, he teamed up with Marc Ferrari of Keel, to help form what would become Cold Sweat. Cold Sweat recorded their debut album in 1990 and toured the U.S and Europe with DIO. Anthony went on to form one of the first Kiss tribute bands. He toured with Cold Gin, which included Chris McLernon (Cold Sweat, Saigon Kick), Jamie St. James (Black ‘N Blue) and Tommy Thayer (Black ‘N Blue, Kiss). Cold Gin enjoyed huge success touring across the U.S and Japan.  As the 3rd “Tony” in the band, he provides the legitimacy that Limoncello had previously lacked.  Anthony now spends 6 months out of the year at his villa which overlooks the Amalfi Coast.
