From the corporate strip mall wastelands of suburbia in Central New Jersey, Diego Allessandro’s trademark sound blending Americana with 80s and 90s pop and 2000s punk has earned him two nominations in the Asbury Music Awards Top Americana Band category with his former band Lot 25. Whether you’re on the floor showcasing your best moves or at the bar just listening, Diego Allessandro pairs his best songs with fun, electrifying covers that create an explosive, lively, and dynamic atmosphere for all. It’s no secret why raves “…[Diego] stamps his own identity on his chosen genre with a series of strong songs, which ooze blue collar imagery, and come fully loaded with hooks aplenty.” Diego Allessandro is a powerful voice in Americana music articulating both the American Millennial and the immigrant experiences.

While Catherine Wacha's debut LP is still in production she is playing her passionate music all around the state.
