We salute and congratulate Mr. Omar Hakim on such an achievement.

THE PLATTERS, THE DRIFTERS and THE COASTERS - Gabriella Ruggieri & partners


A unique Christmas show feat. 3 of the most celebrated bands of all time: THE PLATTERS (Rock n Roll Hall of Fame), THE DRIFTERS and THE  COASTERS.

I had the honor to play drums and percussion for this incredible line up, held on Sunday, December 11th at the Mohegan Sun Arena, easily one of the largest venues in New England.

Bruno Mars and Sting are among the other artists performing there to celebrate the Arena 20th anniversary.

It was a 2 hours non stop concert in front of thousands of enthusiastic music lovers, always singing along and clapping to classics such as "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes", "Charlie Brown", "Stand by me", "Only You" and many more.

"Down in Mexico" by THE COASTERS, appears on the soundtrack of Quentin Tarantino's "Death Proof". Oldies? Goodies for sure!
