The DiVita's come from a heritage of musicians that can be traced back to the "old country". This Father-Son duo brings the sounds of authentic Italian and other romantic music to a variety of settings to provide an atmosphere of class and elegance to any gathering. The two share a love for this culture and music that shines through in their refined attention to detail. Though the delicate sound of guitar and accordion has been a trademark sound of the classic serenade, the duo is supported by an upright bass to complement the group's traditional acoustic nature.
Joe DiVita has been playing music professionally for 17 years in different groups and ensembles ranging from jazz to Caribbean music. He has been playing music since age 5 after taking after his father's lead on the family Wurlitzer. This multi-instrumentalist earned a performance degree from the University of the Arts and has been playing around the nation in a plethora of establishments and positions.
Philip DiVita has been playing the accordion since early childhood and was featured on the Ted Mack Amateur Hour at age 9; chosen from 500 contestants in the Philadelphia area. He traveled and played with a six piece band and cut two records in the late 1950s and 60s and has since gone on to establish himself as a successful engineer, entrepreneur and businessman.
Now, the two musicians bring the generations together with performances of timeless music sure to bring a special charm to your cocktail or dinner event.
