Pino Farina is a singer-songwriter from the Chicago suburbs. He has been playing and performing for over 20 years. In his early career, as a member of the indie-rock band Punsapaya, he toured the country extensively and in 2005 was awarded the Rock Album of the Year by the Chicago Music Awards. After some time off to raise a family, the band has picked up where they left off, and have been writing and recording new original material. Out of sheer passion for music, Pino performs acoustic covers that span a wide spectrum of popular music. Sharing his influences from The Beatles, Tom Petty, U2, The Eagles, etc, it is sure to be a great evening of music from the classic rock songbook of the 70's and 80's to some of today's current classics.
