“As a singer, guitarist and composer, Sal has touched all the bases that have rounded out a successful musical career. But with his recent work as a solo artist, Baglio embarks upon a new path that looks backward in the most delightful way.
Baglio’s music and solo performances dial up a past that is easily imagined in a less-distracted age where music bursts boldly out of a car’s AM radio on a summer drive or floats in the imagination of a young solitary artist learning to strum his first guitar.
New paths or old, Baglio projects a welcome sense of place, family and friends, a “pocket full of memories” where streets named London and Liverpool strike more than mere fancy allusions to the Beatles, the Kinks and others. They set fire in the mind of a young artist that will forever remain in his persona. Free of the demands of the music industry, Baglio is liberated to recall the past without sentimentality but with a flourish of great stories that underpin his new songs – songs that aim for the gentle heart.
Baglio will never be separated from the impulsive spirit of “American Fun”, the hit he wrote with his legendary Boston band, The Stompers, that remains absolutely joyous in its sing-along refrain. Yet, as he ages (and we with him) Baglio reveals where all that great music began and why. His solo performances, powerful, filled with humor and touched by the reflections of an artist still at work, are not to be missed.” – Frank Conte
In the spring of 1994, Greatest Hits…Live was released. To celebrate, the band played a series of summer shows, highlighted by a return engagement on City Hall Plaza in front of 20,000 people. Following these shows, 17 years of playing together had seemingly come to an end. Until……
In the summer of 2000, the Stompers re-united and released Record Album, a 21-song compilation covering the years 1978-1986. They played sell out shows all summer long, giving their fans more of that high-energy rock and roll they had been missing. The Stompers have not recorded since 1986 yet continue to currently sell out shows filled with a multi-generation of fans.
Founder Sal Baglio has released several solo records including Loudah by his new band, The Amplifier Heads, released in November 2019. Sal also is a longtime member of 3 time Grammy Award winner Tom Hambridge’s touring band The Rattlesnakes.
