Welcome to the Shane Diiorio Band Website.
April 8, 2017 – Band News:
After our next gig at Paddy’s Tavern on April 13th I will be winding down gigs for the rest of the year. I have thought long and hard about it but I think it might be time to try something new or just do some off-side guitar work in another band. If gigs come in I will take them on but I have decided not to pursue chasing them anymore at least till the end of the year. I think the plan moving forward into 2019 is to probably mix things up musically and band wise too.
Many thanks for all the support over the years and I will see how we go later in the year about
