  • From what I have read here, this is the place to be. Good food and good entertainment combined. Great stuff.

  • Last night, I enjoyed attending the fundraiser for Dennis Burke (RIP) held at this beautiful place. I saw many of the entertainers from Hooked on Entertainment participating in the celebrations. Starting with Bob Pantano and Lou Costello from 98.1 and 92.1, respectively. First Ladies of Rock & Soul performed and then came entertainer after entertainer. Joey M from La Piazza Restaurant in Wildwood, NJ sang as well as Lou (the shoe) Porecca, to everyone’s pleasure Jimmy Lee sang, Kenny Jeremiah sang Hero and Get Up Get Down Get Funky Get Loose and told of his long standing radio hour on Tuesday nights with Pepper Paul that he would always play that at his last song. Tommy McCarthy was called up to speak for his long time friendship with Dennis Burke. Many other artists were there in the crowd, there was Greg Martiello, Vic Rubino, Greg Armstrong and Frankie (Dinner with Diamond) Derosa. Bobby Beato’s band of Purple Reign also performed, Jimmy Lee sang a couple of hits, the original band of Soul Survivors also performed and then asked Kenny Jeremiah to sing Expressway to Your Heart with them, which was the first hit for Gamble and Huff which ushered in The Sound of Philly (TSOP). My favorite opera singers were Mike Jones and Marc Antonelli (Sal Dupree trained) and they sang a duet that had everyone in awe. Each had a chance to sing a solo as well. I was able to video Holly Faris as she paid tribute to Tina Turner. Finally the show stopper was when Patti Lattanzi & Billy Carlucci came out and sang their notorious opening number for their radio show which includes Dennis Burke’s name in the lyrics. Wow! I am sure a lot of money was raised and on top of all that Bob Pantano personally invited the Burke family to call him if they ever have a need. Wow! The man who I admired the most for his acts of servitude was Bill Balis, owner of the Adelphia Restaurant; he worked tirelessly serving and making sure everyone was served in good time until the end of the night, where he could still be seen helping the staff to break down and put away tables, etc. Wow! Two thumbs up!

    • Thank you Shannon!!! Bill’s main goal is to make his customers happy and help the staff whenever possible. We are glad you enjoyed the event and hope to see you soon!
