ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Everybody loves a wedding--especially a wonderful, lively and crazy ITALIAN one! That is why the nationally acclaimed, San Diego-based band, ROMAN HOLIDAY, decided to create the ultimate Italian Wedding CD, filled with lively and passionate Italian wedding favorites guaranteed to fill the reception hall with plenty of "AMORE."

As an added bonus, the CD features a 16-page "How To" booklet that takes the prospective bride and groom, wedding planner, or DJ step-by-step through an Italian American Wedding reception. The booklet describes each part of the reception itinerary and gives a history of the traditional Italian wedding songs played at each segment, which corresponds to a listing on the CD track.

Recorded live in a state-of-the-art studio using up to 25 performers, the musical selections include traditional songs to accompany the Grand Entrance/ Bridal Party Processional, the First Dance, the Father-Daughter Dance, the Mother-Son Dance, the Grand March, the Tarantella, the Cake Cutting and Money Dance. In addition, Italian wedding favorites such as "That's Amore," the "Chicken Dance," and "C'é La Luna Mezza Mare" are included. The CD also includes selections of swing, mambo, and tango music and even gives an outline of how to dance the Tarantella, a definite "must do" at an Italian wedding.

"If you ask people what comes into mind when they think of an Italian American wedding, they'll mention the good food and all the fun they had dancing to the music," said Tony DiBona, band leader and producer of the Italian Wedding CD. "All the cherished Italian American traditions come together at a wedding celebration and the music is truly the heart and soul of the Italian wedding experience-after the food, of course!"

The CD is a perfect choice for wedding couples of Italian American heritage who want to keep traditional customs alive but need a guide to help them along. "We packaged the CD so that the DJ in Topeka or the wedding coordinator in Baton Rouge can produce an authentic Italian American wedding-- even if the closest Italian community is hundreds of miles away," said DiBona.


"If you are an Italian American and are planning a wedding reception around your heritage, this is the guide for you. And if you're neither Italian nor planning a wedding, we bet you'll still be moved to clap your hands and move your feet when you listen to these lively and romantic songs," DiBona added.

It is also a wonderful compilation of favorite Italian songs, performed by excellent musicians, to be enjoyed by ANYONE who loves Italian and Italian American music.


The ROMAN HOLIDAY show band, now in its tenth year, has performed for festivals and corporate events in cities across the country and has appeared in several Hollywood films. Their lively and colorful show includes a wide repertoire of Italian-style music and dance.

Great love this seller!! Highly recommend!! Great music!
I am a dance instructor and this was the most authentic dance music I could find for an Italian Tarantella dance. Super fun communication, quick delivery and great value. I would strongly recommend this seller. Thank you!

We're giving this CD as Christmas gifts
We originally bought this CD at the Italian Festival in Pittsburgh and as soon as we heard it, we wanted more for our friends and relatives as Christmas gifts. The music makes you laugh and cry at the same time. . .che bello!

So Happy I found this Cd for my wedding!! It's TERRIFIC!!
I come from an Italian American family and wanted so badly to honor my heritage (and especially our grandparents who very badly wanted to see us marry "Italian" style) at our wedding but it was amazing how hard it was for me to find a band that knew the songs and customs. I thought I was destined for the run of the mill wedding band playing rock n roll or choosing a DJ who definitely wouldn't know anything about Italian songs or dances. My husband suggested the Internet - didn't think I'd find anything when to my surprise I found this CD by Roman Holiday. My prayers had been answered. All the songs that I could possibly have wanted were there and they even supply you with a handbook about the various customs at American Italian weddings and how to do the Tarantella (a must at an Italian wedding!) etc. My guests (even non-Italian ones) had such a BLAST - we had almost everyone on the dancefloor the entire night. Wine helped of course too but I have to give credit where credit is due ......thanks to the lively music of Roman Holiday we were able to have the wedding we always imagined. This is perfect for any Bride and Groom (of ANY heritage!) that wants a wedding that will be fun, lively and different from the "normal" (usually boring) American wedding. We give our two thumbs up for this CD for sure!!

Music even a German family could love
Our family is German from way back, so we were taken a bit by surprise when our nephew announced he and his fiance Angela were planning a traditional Italian wedding! We hit the internet to try to find information on how to plan such a wedding and find Italian wedding songs for the reception. . .and we found this CD. Honestly, we couldn't have done this wedding without it. The book in the CD took us through all the Italian wedding traditions. The best part of the CD is when the CHICKEN DANCE came up. . .all our German relatives went crazy, and of course the Italian side loved it too, so that song really bonded the families. Thank you Roman Holiday for the spirit that brought it all together!

Great CD, great response.
I own a wedding DJ company. I found this CD after countless weeks of searching for a good fun traditional Italian CD. I played a few of these tracks at the wedding and they went nuts! I bought a couple of other Italian CDs but they didn't impress me, this one is a must have for wedding DJs.
