Bobby Wells

The Infernos Band, America’s #1 Show Band and the area’s premier live performance group, has been on the music scene since 1977. In recent years their fame has grown and they have had opportunities that even the most famous main-stream bands would only dream of. The band has performed for President Obama and past Presidents as well, performed at the Inauguration Gala’s for former New Jersey Governors Jon Corzine and James E. McGreevey, entertained the Spanish Steps and at the Piazza Navona in Rome, Italy and performed at the Waldorf Astoria for the families of the NYPD, NYFD, doctors and EMS workers who were on scene at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

New to the band in 2011 are two vocal powerhouses adding flames to the already burning fire of The Infernos, Robin Filippone and Chris Baamonde. Robin and Chris will join fellow band mates Kenny Simmons, lead singer and former member of the three-time Grammy Award winning group The Commodores, Richie Rosato, former lead singer of the world famous group The Duprees, Vince Torrell, nationally acclaimed as one of of today’s greatest crooners and aficionado of Francis Albert Sinatra, and Bobby Wells, founder of The Infernos, musical leader and former musical director for several musical acts including The Duprees.

Backed up by a burning rhythm section headed on drums by the “Fabulous” Anthony Parente, including Joe Paris on Zyndrum Percussion and guitar and vocals, and the most exciting and talented horn section around led by trumpeter and horn arranger, the extraordinary Michael Lamparello and under the direction of Dr. Joe Sasso as their musical director and world class guitarist, this exciting and spectacular ensemble can never fail. Anytime, anywhere, magic happens! The Infernos have performed at hundreds of venues and weddings, and are regarded as the premier NJ Wedding Band.
