Walter Hochhauser, Carmine DeSana and Sal Sofia as The Jersey Boys

Walter Hochhauser was born in Brooklyn, NY, and moved to Florida in 1961 where he began singing in some of Miami’s most notable hotels. In 1980, he joined REUNION as the lead singer, playing local venues and Rock N’ Roll shows throughout the state and in the Bahamas. In 2004, REUNION recorded the CD “Miracles,” featuring Walter on lead for many of their arrangements. In 1999, Walter had the privilege and pleasure of recording vocal tracks for Dion DiMucci’s “New Master’s” Album, and today, continues to record songs with Dion being seen and shared through social media.

Carmine DeSena was born in Brooklyn, NY, and was one of the original members of the Creations and Riffs and in the 1970’s he sang with the Ribtones. In 1980, he moved to Florida, and teamed up with Joel Bressler to create REUNION, South Florida’s Premier Show Band. Carmine is also called upon by Dion DiMucci as Baritone on his video recordings shared on social media. Carmine has been influential with “keeping the music alive,” and has been a member of many well known Doo-wop and oldies groups, bringing decades of harmony experience, energy, and excitement to every show he performs in.

Sal Sofia hails from the Bronx, NY, where he grew up with a family of singers, musicians, and entertainers. With a deep affection for music and harmony, he became interested in the deeper vocal group sounds of the 50’s and set out to host his own show, the Doo-Wop Groove on AM/FM stations, heard throughout the New York area. Sal has been a collector of the “rare” sounds of the genre and moved to Florida in 2003, where he began singing with several local acapella groups, achieving notoriety with The Dons of Doo Wop, a successful acapella group. Today, he can be seen and heard joining Dion DiMucci with his strong second tenor style on recordings Dion shares across social media to all of his fans.

* Happy Halloween- Wednesday, October 31st, 2018!

from calendarpedia.com

What is Halloween?

Halloween is a celebration in remembrance of the dead that occurs annually on the evening of October 31. The name Halloween (sometimes spelled Hallowe’en) is a contraction of All Hallows’ Even(ing), meaning All Saints’ Evening, as it is celebrated on the evening before All Saints’ Day, also known as All Hallows’ Day. Saints have historically been known as hallows, derived from the Old English word hālig and related to the German word heilig, meaning holy.

Halloween is a mixture of customs of pagan and Christian origins. It originated from an ancient Celtic seasonal festival, known as Samhain, to mark the end of the harvest and to remember the dead that is celebrated from sunset on October 31 to sunset on November 1.

While not an official holiday, it is observed in a number of countries around the world, primarily in the West (North America and Europe) but also increasingly in Asian countries, as it provides commercial opportunities. In the United States, it is estimated to be the festival with the second-highest amount of consumer spending after Christmas.

Halloween is followed by All Saints’ Day (for which it is the vigil) on November 1 and All Souls’ Day on November 2. Together the three days of remembrance of the dead form the triduum (a religious observance lasting three days) of Hallowtide. People traditionally visit the graves of deceased relatives during this time. It is related to the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead.

***** Nino’s Pizzeria & Restaurant, 7120 Beracasa Way, Boca Raton, Florida 33433, (561) 392-9075.

Way back on March 20, 2008 Jeff Eats told you guys about Nino’s Pizzeria & Restaurant in Boca Raton.

Time for a little update on what is definitely one of the best “mom & pop” red sauce Italian joints in South Florida.

For your convenience the “original” story is printed below…gonna save you the trouble of scrolling around.

Anyway,

Just for background, Nino’s opened for business in Boca Raton in 1983-you mathematicians can do the math–for the rest of you-that’s 31 years ago. In something like 2005, it opened a second location in Delray Beach. Partners fall-out, one gets Boca Raton, the other gets Delray Beach. So now you know, the business angle here.

Now-just so we are straight, we are talking about Boca Raton- here. Absolutely-positively nothing wrong with the Delray Beach location–Jeff Eats (1) lives closer to the Boca joint and (2) Jeff Eats thinks that the food, service, ambiance are better in Boca Raton- but trust me Delray Beach ain’t exactly chopped liver either.

Anyway,

Jeff Eats has never “officially” counted the number of times-I’ve eaten in/taken out from Nino’s–but I’m guessing 70 maybe 80, let’s just say it’s a lot. I want to tell you, that not- even- one- time was the food not right on the money–same for the service. Real simple… its soups, salads, pizzas, calzones, subs, pastas, entrees are all delicious. Off the top of my head, I would match Nino’s veal chop parmigiana ($22 soup/salad, pasta side, garlic rolls), its chicken cacciatore on the bone ($17.95 soup/salad, pasta side, garlic rolls), its chicken scarpariello on the bone ($17.95 soup/salad, pasta side, garlic rolls) and its shrimp scampi ($22.50 soup/salad, pasta side, garlic rolls) up against South Florida’s best “mom & pop” and “upscale” players. While I’m on the subject of food, Nino’s plain pizza is always on the money and the joint makes what it calls an “upside down Sicilian” pie that is a work of beauty–if you go, get it!

You maybe wondering why the sudden “gushing” about Nino’s?

Last night, Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and some dear friends- ate dinner at Nino’s and we got to discussing “various” Italian joints–and like a bolt of lightening–it hit me as to how really good Nino’s stuff is! Just that simple! Real fast-right off the top of you head, other than Nino’s–name a “mom & pop” red sauce Italian joint that does chicken cacciatore and chicken scarpariello on the bone…you do know, that’s the only RIGHT WAY to make those dishes–but that’s just my take-on the-thing!

You can check menu/prices at www.ninosofboca.com.

Nino’s Pizzeria & Restaurant is open 7 days a week 11am-10pm.

March 20, 2008
***** Nino’s Pizzeria & Restaurant, 7120 Beracasa Way, Boca Raton, Florida 33433, (561) 392-9075—&—13900 South Jog Road, Delray Beach, Florida 33445, (561) 499-3988

Nino’s is one of my favorite “mom and pop” Southern Italian joints in South Florida. I could be going out on a limb here, but I think that after you have tried this joint, you will also become a big fan.

Just so you know, the Boca Raton location has been around for something like 25 years…the Delray Beach location has been in business for about 3 years. Over the years, I have eaten in the Boca location something like 30 times and the Delray location twice…although the menus are almost identical, I like the food, ambiance and service in the Boca restaurant better…call me a creature of habit, but I really feel at home when I enter the Boca joint…from the way I am greeted at the front door, to Nino the owner waving and talking from behind the pizza counter to the customers…the food and service in Delray Beach is just fine, but there is something “special” about the Boca location.

Although Nino’s seemingly “follows” the standard pattern…Soup or salad, garlic rolls, entree with a pasta side…this joint makes some of the most delicious dishes and pizza that you have ever eaten. I would personally match its veal chop parmigiana—bone in chicken cacciatore— bone in chicken scapriello—shrimp scampi entrees against any Italian restaurant down here in South Florida.

Like I said before, Nino’s has been around for something like 25 years. The Boca Raton joint is jammed for dinner 7-days a week and has a takeout business that seems to be never ending. The Delray Beach spot has also developed quite a following…but my heart belongs to the Boca joint. Both joints are open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.

Great food. Great service. Pizza joint prices…

By the way, Nino and his wife Josephine own Josephine’s Italian Restaurant which is located on Federal Highway in Boca Raton. That’s a story for another day…but Josephine’s is a very good “white table cloth” joint.

He’s shared the stage or has worked with Jason Bateman, Ed Asner, Shirley Jones, Robin Williams, Harry Anderson, Ray Romano, and Jon Stewart. Peter’s also written for such stars as Academy Award nominee Chazz Palminteri (A Bronx Tale, Bullets Over Broadway.)

LOU VILLANO

Lou Villano grew up in Brooklyn singing the songs of some of the most popular singers from the 50’s & 60’s – Paul Anka was one of his favorites. While Lou was arranging his shows he remembered how many of his audiences would comment that his resemblance and vocal styling is very similar to Paul Anka. They asked “Why don’t you do more songs by Paul Anka”? That’s when Lou acted upon their advice. Lou becomes Paul Anka performing his hits – Diana, Lonely Boy, The Longest Day, My Hometown, Puppy Love, Destiny and so much more. Within the show are songs Paul Anka wrote for singers like Buddy Holly, Frank Sinatra, Tom Jones plus hit songs from some of his fellow songwriters and friends Frankie Avalon & Bobby Rydell. Lou is receiving rave reviews and standing ovations from his audiences performing this show. It’s a show that you are going to remember as you walk out singing the songs that you loved so much by such a talented songwriter and singer.
