LaFlavour

Friday, July 9, 2021

LaFlavour began humbly in Massillon, Ohio in 1967. Twin brothers Pete and Steve Nervo (guitar and drums) joined with schoolmates Craig DeBock (guitar and sax) and Gino Milchak (bass guitar) to form the core of what would actually become several bands. By the mid-1970s,the boys had progressed into one of the hottest dance bands in the area, and eventually began traveling as the show band"Ragweed". Thanks to notable Akron club owner Arnie "Red" Shapiro, they came to the attention of top entertainment booking agent John Sansone from Buffalo, NY, who took over the booking for the band and decided to re-name them "Flavour". The Boys became "LaFlavour" with the release of the album "Mandolay" in 1980. The Boys are still bringing to audiences the highest quality live entertainment available anywhere, filled with the same incredible music, fun, and antics they've become famous for during a remarkable career spanning nearly 45 years!
