Mario AKA 'the Nutty Boy' Brings you an evening of quality classic Ska & Reggae anthems, covering the major hits of the major names in Ska & Revival Reggae including: The Specials, Bob Marley, Madness, UB40, The Beat, Bad Manners, Jimmy Cliff, Dennis Brown and many many more.

Mario performs throughout London & East Anglia including Essex, Middlesex, Herts, Cambs & Suffolk.

Mario's naturally versatile singing voice, allows him to effortlessly switch vocal styles , from Bob Marley to Suggs (Madness) to Ali Campbell (UB40) to Terry Hall (The Specials) and many more, even getting down and dirty with a bit of Shaggy and Sean Paul etc.

Mario grew up with 2 very diverse musical passions from a very early age. From the age of 7 or so, Mario first experienced the music of Elvis Presley (Mario is already a renowned Elvis Tribute Artist), then at the tender age of 13, Mario heard Too Much Too Young by The Specials, and was instantly hooked by the modern Ska sound of Two Tone, Madness and the like, which later developed into a natural progression into Reggae of the late seventies and the early eighties, this being the foundation of Mario's current Tribute Show.

Mario's Tribute Show brings you the best in Ska and Reggae from the late seventies and early eighties and also throws in some modern Reggae classics for good measure. You can choose from his classic mix of Ska & Reggae tribute singing, to a show purely consisting of Ska or a show consisting of Reggae only. Or for a show really to please all the people all the time, Mario can even throw in some classic Elvis tribute songs if you wish.

Hi Mario, I wanted to contact you to thank you so much for last Saturday - the feed back was really great - everyone enjoyed the show so much, especially the Bride and Groom - we really had a great party that night and we are still all talking about it. You certainly made a huge contribution to the night - I do know there are photos about and as soon as I get hold of some, I will forward them on to you. Once again our thanks for such a great show - you definitely were a 'big hit' as far as everyone was concerned. Much luck to you for the future. Regards,
- Sue (Helen & Pete's Wedding, Clacton Golf Club)

I had the pleasure of Nutty Boy Mario performing at my 40th birthday party. He is the ultimate entertainer. I had relatives that were only popping in to wish me a happy birthday, but when Nutty Boy entered the room they were mesmerised and ended up staying the whole night! The audience of 100 ranged from 8 to 80 years old, all of which were singing and dancing constantly, a hard job for any entertainer. Encore after encore he played and the audience still wanted more!! My dad is a hard man to impress yet he told me that he has never been to such a great party thanks to Nutty Boy, Nutty Boy Mario is the top of my list for any event!
