About
When you want some ambiance from Rome, Naples, Sicily or Olde Brooklyn/Bronx: choose Gruppo Di Gondolieri -- the quintessential NY-based Italian folk band performing in full Gondolier costumes and authentic Italian and Italian-American music using authentic instrumentation like accordion and mandolin.

Solo Di Gondolieri is our solo live accordion performer, perfect for small and large events where you'd like a little flavor of Rome, Naples or Sicily!

From O SOLE MIO to Dino & Sinatra and classical crossover ala Bocelli, with vocals in Italian and English.

Band leader and founder Papa Bavarian has recently performed at Carnegie Hall and House of Blues Boston and will be appearing in an upcoming HBO miniseries, among many other credits to their names.

Gruppo Di Gondolieri has recently performed a tour of Arthur Avenue's Little Italy summer concert series and has entertained the NYC Wine and Food Festival which was featured on The Food Network.

Perfect for cocktail hours and weddings, beautiful, romantic music from Venice, Naples and Rome, can be hired as SOLO accordionist or mandolinist or as a full TRIO.

Performers can play in your choice of either full Gondolier costumes or in suits.

Choose from our classic TRIO configuration of accordion, guitar and sax or mandolin OR our SOLO DI GONDOLIERI -- solo accordion singer or mandolin singer.

Josh did a wonderful job playing the piano and singing for a family funeral. His voice is soothing and he was sensitive to our needs. I was a bit unsure at first given all of the accordion and band type samples of his work that were so different from what I was looking for, but I saw and listened to sample where I could clearly hear his voice and I knew that he was the right person for this special job. He was professionally dressed, kind, compassionate and an absolute pleasure to work with. He played and sang my selections beautifully and where I deferred to him to choose music, it was perfect. I am so happy with my decision to work with Josh. Thank you Josh.

We loved Smitty's!! They are talented and lots of fun. We hired them for an Oktoberfest party, and plan to hire them again for a different venue. Highly recommend this band!
