Ladies and Gentlemen...Blue Eyed Leo

Chuck Jennings is an artistic songwriter, vocalist and rhythm guitar player.

Allen "Vac" Vaccarello is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and songwriter as well. 

Together they have redefined epic sounds from the classic rock era with acoustic versions of intricate instrumentation on 6 & 12 string guitars, keyboard, a bit of harmonica, and an outstanding blend of "soul searing" vocal harmonies covering such renowned artists as The Beatles, Elton John, Crosby Stills & Nash, Simon & Garfunkel, America, and a host of others as well as more recent artists such as Snow Patrol, Guster, Sister Hazel, and Jack Johnson.

The duo often begins an evening with softer dinner music and ramps it up from there or can come out screaming & kicking depending on the venue...The duo will open June with back to back private events at Boulder Ridge Country Club on Friday the 1st and a private Kildeer residence on Saturday the 2nd. performing at a highschool graduation party.
