“For 35 years Gelotti has been proud to support the local arts and artists in our community! As a poor kid from Paterson I hope to be a shining example of what can happen when we give kids opportunities, said Mike Guerriero, Chief Executive Officer of Gelotti. “We love the arts and are so happy to provide a platform like this for musicians to share their talents with the world.”
