Welcome to Mario Romano's website.
Musician, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist sometimes Poet, Philosopher and Comedian.
As Founder and President of the Castlepoint Group, Mario has dedicated many years to the pursuit of excellence in business and philanthropy while setting aside his passion for music. Now after 36 years, Mario has returned to his music, embracing his talent and passion for the piano and jazz.
Mario's passionate return to the music scene was highlighted by a concert performance in December 2008 at the Rose Theatre in Brampton. Original compositions (Those Damn I Love You's) and new arrangements by Mario (Norwegian Wood) and others were performed for over 1000 patrons. Several performances followed, including at the Toronto Distillery District's "Art of Jazz" festival in the summer of 2009.
Mario and his quartet then performed a tour in Italy which was celebrated by national radio and television, and led to subsequent engagements.
Mario has played and recorded with the likes of Pat Labarbera, Roberto Occhipinti, Freddie Stone, David Young and Mark Kelso.
His last CD called "Valentina" was released in November 2010. His tracks were played on radio stations in North America, Europe and Japan.
His new album, "Fenyrose," will be released this month, featuring fellow musicians Roberto Occhipinti, Pat LaBarbera, William Sperandei, Mark McLean, and Nahre Sol. The first leg of his upcoming tour will include concerts in Italy and Israel in September and October.
