Vic Ferrari plays Sunday

With no more than a name originating from Andy Kaufman’s character in the hit television show “Taxi” and a big dream, the Vic Ferrari Band was founded in 1988.

No one had any idea that the dream would turn into over 23 years of entertaining audiences in every type of show imaginable.

The Vic Ferrari Band will perform Sunday, Sept. 1 starting at 3:30 p. m. at the Calumet County Fair.

With over 2,300 shows under their belt, the band has played a large assortment of venues ranging from Rockfest, Octoberfest and Summerfest to weddings, casinos and corporate events across the U. S., the Caribbean, and Mexico.

A love of music and a passion to entertain has driven the seven-piece ensemble to excel in winning over any audience. Playing a mix of classic rock from the 1960s to today, and even tossing in a little country, the band is known for sounding as good as the original artist and sometimes even better.

Vic Ferrari is comprised of Mike Bailey on vocals, bass, horns and emcee; Wayne Peters on vocals and drums; Tom Bailey on vocals, percussion and trumpet; New Holstein native Russ Reiser on vocals and guitar; Chad Muenster on bass, guitar, harmonica and vocals; Ron Kalista on vocals and drums; and Aaron Zinsmeister on keyboards and vocals.
