The only Canadian Tribute band to be nominated best Elvis Tribute Band at The Elvis Industry Tribute Awards in Memphis, The Casino Brothers Band have been backing Elvis Tribute Artists from around the globe since 1999. From showcases to competitions, the band pours their hearts and souls into every performance, capturing the authenticity of each era of the king of rock n roll. The band will be making their Flaming Star Festival debut and are very excited to be involved.  The Casino Brothers Band will accompany the tribute artists for the Saturday night Showcase and the Finals on Sunday.  


The Casino Brothers Band began their journey in 1999 as a simple, no name, 3 piece band with band leader  Paul “Paco” Danesi on Bass, Marco Spadafora on drums, and Brian Wilson on guitar. They were performing with some of the local tribute artists at small soft seated theatres and Casinos in Ontario, Canada. Some of the tribute artists they backed up at that time included Anthony Von as Elvis, Bernie Jessome as Roy Orbison, Ray Anthony as Ritchie Valens, Jeff Scott as Buddy Holly, Billy Diel as Jerry Lee Lewis, Al Ross as Elvis, and JD Fortune (formally lead singer of INXS) as Elvis to name a few.
