Scott Savol, who gained fame while competing on the fourth season of American Idol, is the new lead male vocalist for “The Avenue,” an exclusive Jerry Bruno Productions band.
Savol, a Cleveland native, finished in fifth place behind winner Carrie Underwood in 2005.
In “The Avenue,” Savol will share lead vocals with two female vocalists, including another American Idol contestant, Tiffany Marchak. Marchak was a semi-finalist in season two, making the Hollywood round. She is a founding member of the band, which began at Jerry Bruno Productions in 2006.
While competing on American Idol, Savol’s raw talent and soulful voice won him enough votes each week to get him into the Top 5, as viewers continually responded favorably to his down-to-earth demeanor and spiritual attitude. Savol’s performing experience was limited to choir at Shaker Heights High School, festivals and church shows prior to endearing himself to American Idol’s worldwide audience.
“It's great to be back home, doing what I love to do with an amazing band,” said Savol. “It’s such a blessing, not to mention that ‘The Avenue’ helps bring fun and joy to the happiest day of anybody's life, their wedding day.”
Like most bands at Jerry Bruno Productions, “The Avenue” specializes in wedding receptions and also entertains at large corporate events and private parties with an occasional public appearance. In addition to featuring male and female vocalists with full harmonies, the band’s rhythm section is made up of seasoned professionals including Sammy Davis Jr.’s former drummer, Ray Porrello. The band performs covers ranging from jazz and swing to motown, disco and current hits.
“The Avenue” is one of the most requested groups on a roster of over 30 bands and 25 DJs at Jerry Bruno Productions, which has serviced Northeast Ohio, Pittsburgh, Columbus and other neighboring communities for over a decade. The company also provides live ceremony music, jazz groups and specialty acts, as well as uplighting and photobooth services for over 1,200 events a year. Each week, musicians represent Jerry Bruno Productions at Cleveland’s best venues, including the Horseshoe Casino and the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame as well as all the major hotels and country clubs.
