Eleganza!

Eleganza!, formed by Brian Vanderwerf, guitarist/vocalist for the Estrus Records band The Midnight Evils and the celebrated Chooglin' (Fat Possum/Big Legal Mess Records), is a 3-guitar ROCK AND ROLL attack featuring Vanderwerf and Chooglin' bandmate, Jeff Johnson, and ex-Ol' Yeller's Greg McAloon. Also on board is the legendary Tony Zaccardi of Romantica & Kruddler on bass, and his longtime partner in crime Tim Baumgart (Wizards Are Real/Big Ditch Road/Kruddler) on drums.

The band played First Avenues' BEST NEW BANDS SHOWCASE and have opened for The ALABAMA SHAKES, CHARLES BRADLEY, BOB LOG III, LEE BAINS III & THE GLORY FIRES, LEFT LANE CRUISER, BUFFALO KILLERS, MEAT PUPPETS, BOBBY BARE Jr. and so many more....
