Salvatore Sparaccio, a handsome stud who plays guitar for Long Island-based rockers The Moonlighters, said on Feb. 26 in an exclusive interview with New York Concert Examiner Eric Holden that the band is set to make its debut on Apr. 5 at New York City's iconic Fat Baby's performance hall.
Fat Baby is a multi-level bar and lounge located on the lower east side of Mannhattan, and is both a rock and roll venue as well as a unique version of downtown New York City nightlife set in a Los Angeles-inspired setting.
"I'm happy to announce that The Moonlighters will be playing our first show on April 5th at Fat Baby's in New York City," Sparaccio said. "We are looking to share the show with one or two other bands to make it a great night. Please send me a message if you'd like to get on with us. Thanks!"
The first band for the historic Apr. 5 show is set to go on at 8 p.m. EST, but no official word yet on potential openers.
"We will have at least seven songs," Sparaccio added. "We're so excited for people to hear the new tunes."
The Moonlighters are one of the sexiest bands to come out of Long Island in decades. Former Permanent Me frontman Brian Kapler, a critically-acclaimed singer/songwriter, is the Moonlighters' main vocalist, while the studly Matt Baard rounds out the band's exciting riffage on guitar.
Baard, a devilishly adorable young man with a smile that drives the ladies wild, is well-known on Long Island from his work as singer for Brookside, but he makes a smooth transition to guitar ace with the Moonlighters.
As for Sparaccio, he's a former member of such Long Island teen heartthrobs as Perfect Endings and Big City Lights. Sparaccio says the band is looking for a permanent bassist to fill out the ranks.
