Bocci & The BadBoys take the stage to celebrate the release of their newest CD : Never Needed Anyone The musical histories of the members of Bocci and the Badboys are as extensive as the history of the Asbury Park music scene itself. Asbury Park born-and bred keyboardist Tony Amato, a.k.a. “Boccigalupe,” has been a member of almost every band that was part of the 1970’s Asbury Park music scene. Centered around the Stone Pony, the Fastlane, the Upstage Coffee House and other clubs, that same scene gave then-budding musicians like Bruce Springsteen, Southside Johnny, and later, Jon Bon Jovi a chance to hone their skills before rising to international prominence. All of the members of Boccigalupe & the Badboys are veterans of hundreds of gigs in dark, smoky bars where sometimes the audience amounts to a handful of people. Through it all, they’ve honed their chops to the point that they know how to work together on stage and in the studio.
