Following that tradition, Tornado Alley offers an array of styles from the American back roads that will have you feeling like you’re on a cross-country road trip with your radio on. Tornado Alley captures the feeling in song, of traveling from New England’s folk scene to the Bluegrass Region, across the Texas prairies, up through the Rockies and out to California. Audiences at Tornado Alley’s shows have truly been caught up in the band’s sound and have helped to make a good fan base.

In 2008, his debut full-length album “Destination Moon,” produced by Andy Farber and accompanied by Farber & his Swing Mavens octet, served up a dozen chestnuts, including the title track, “I’m Gonna Live Till I Die,” “Come Fly with Me” and “Straighten Up and Fly Right.” Showcasing 13 masterful musicians, the project includes tenor, baritone and alto sax, trombone, trumpet, piano, bass and drums. And now, Costanzo’s follow-up disc, “Can’t We Be Friends?” – released on Daywood Drive Records raises the torch to fever pitch, featuring a five-piece rhythm section comprising piano, guitar, percussion, bass and vibraphone. The triptych of 10 songs, which again pays homage to musical heroes who painted the original brush strokes on American standards, thematically personifies Costanzo’s romantic relationships over the decades, embraced with a vibe he describes as “George Shearing meets The Nat King Cole Trio meets Milt Jackson.”
