With a successful premier full length record that peaked as high as #3 on the iTunes singer-songwriter charts under his belt, talented musician Nick Santino decided that embarking on a headlining tour that featured striped down acoustic sets and an intimate environment for fans was next on his list. The laid back approach was not only focused on the environment Santino hoped to provide for fans, but also extended to the artists Santino asked to join him on the road. The Technicolors, Austin Gibbs, Brian Marquis and This Century opened for Santino, and the easygoing friendship throughout the group of performers helped continue the informal and relaxed, style that Santino was aiming for. This tour, aptly named The Long and Winding Roadshow, touched down in New York City on November 7th, where the intimate approach to touring and Santino’s goal to connect with fans on a personal level absolutely hit the mark.
