Ratso at the Levitt

WestportNow.com Image
The Levitt Pavilion was the preferred entertainment venue for many on a warm August night tonight as the five-piece Ratso band, led by former Westporter and guitarist John Gerardi (2nd l), played “original electric rocking blues” to the delight of the audience, some of whom danced to the beat of the band. Gerardi lived on North Avenue in the late 1970s when he was the leader of another band, “Rise.” Tonight was the first time that the Ratso band performed at the Levitt.
