Max Gazzè Meets NYC
Hit Week is the only music festival outside of Italy that promotes Italian music, artistry, and culture worldwide. Within the United States, Italian superstars Max Gazzè and the band Negrita will be making stops in New York as well as Chicago, Boston, Miami, and Los Angeles. But the party doesn’t stop there as they will also be making their way to Canada, UK, Japan, and China. For those interested in catching Max Gazzè while he is in the area, he will be performing in New York for just one night at the Highline Ballroom which is located in Chelsea.
Gazzè has become a legend being in the industry as a singer-songwriter and musician for over 25 years. He is known throughout Italy for his pop rock style and high-pitched voice. He not only has a successful solo career but is also a part of the popular trio called Fabi Silvestri Gazzè along with Niccolò Fabi and Daniele Silvestri. Gazzè has an interesting history as he was born in Rome but spent much of his childhood in Belgium given that his father was a diplomat at the Italian embassy there. At a young age, he learned how to play both the piano and bass guitar and from that point on, he launched himself into the music world by performing frequently at nightclubs in Brussels.
He has nine solo studio albums and his most recent one that came out last year entitled Maximilian topped Italy’s music charts and even went platinum. The single “La Vita Com’è” in particular was a huge hit and the most played song on the radio at the time. Even if you are not familiar with Gazzè, his songs are very upbeat and catchy so the fun rhythms he creates will definitely be stuck in your head by the end of the night. Be sure to catch him live at the Highline Ballroom in Chelsea on Wednesday, October 12th!
