Chris Ruggiero Biography

Chris Ruggiero takes his audiences on a journey through the golden age of rock and roll, breathing new life into the timeless music of the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Chris has been described as an “old soul”, a millennial whose approach to his concert appearances is more in line with that of a bygone era than it is the artists of his generation.
No stranger to live audiences and television audiences in the northeast, Chris first came to national attention when he performed in concert on one of PBS-TV’s coast-to-coast broadcast specials, which still airs to this day. Since then, Chris has been traveling around the country delivering his unique brand of vintage rock and roll and sharing his passion for the classics. He’s shared the stage with artists such as Bobby Rydell, The Duprees, The Drifters, and many many more. It seems almost pre-ordained that he’s now working the same stages as the artists who he grew up admiring. An East Coast Music Hall of Fame 2020 Nominee, he performed at the Music Hall’s 2019 induction ceremony alongside Tito Puente, Jr. singing the iconic song Tito’s father wrote, “Oye Como Va.”

There used to be an old adage in the publicity business, “any publicity is good publicity”.  However, I’m sure legendary public-relations professional Gary Schweikhart would have much preferred not to be in the headlines himself as an accident victim.

When Clint Holmes walks out on any stage the space immediately transforms into one of those superstar entertainment venues in Las Vegas, (ground zero for some of the world’s most thrilling performers). That’s how it was in the Razz Room in Boca last night as the man who keeps better time than my Apple Watch and who can’t sing a note or make a gesture that isn’t dazzling and exciting gave a special gift to the Boca audience.
