Bruno Mollica, ambassador of the “Greatest Little City in Florida”
As a long time resident and ambassador of Venice, Florida Bruno welcomes you to “The Greatest Little City in Florida“. As an entertainer, promoter of the arts, DJ, and artists Bruno has plenty of experience when it comes to Venice. His passion has always been to promote the small to mid sized business that line the downtown streets.
*While still in his teens, Bruno entertained at the Piccadilly Nightclub in Columbus, Ohio. One evening the club owner hired Wolfman Jack to DJ a promotion. While Bruno assisted Wolfman in front of a capacity crowd of 3,000 people, Bruno realized that it doesn’t matter if you’re working with a crowd of 30 people, 300 or 3,000. “You have to perform like it’s 3,000.”
Bruno went on to own Fashion Plus Modeling & Dance Company of Ohio for nearly 20 years. He was also editor and publisher of the Fashion Magazine that was distributed throughout the buckeye state, specializing in fashion shows and talent bookings. Bruno made his singing debut among many of his colleagues at a V.I.P. Fashion Show in July of 1992, and in 1993 signed on with the RollerGirl Show Tour. Upon retiring the agency, the duo’s singing act continued for ten years in Ohio and throughout Florida during the winter months. While averaging about 40 shows per winter, they were booked from Disney World Parks to Eagles, Elks, Moose Lodges, VFW’s, and RV parks throughout Florida.
The Tour started in Jacksonville and moved down the Gulf Coast & throughout the Florida Keys. Bruno would then stop at his parent’s house in Key West for a week of “Island Time” with his folks before heading up the Keys, doing more shows, as the tour moved up the Atlantic side of Florida and to in-land bookings. We repeated that route 2 to 3 times per season, while visiting our winter friends and favorite vacation destinations.
During the 2000 tour, Bruno fell in love with Venice the night before entertaining a full house at Bay Indies Mobile Home Park. The next morning, he went downtown and found “The Greatest Little City in Florida”, which is one of my trademark statements.
When Bruno first moved to Venice, he worked as “The Singing DJ” at the Lake Placid & Arcadia Moose Lodges, Papadon’s Italian Restaurant, Snook Haven, several Country Clubs and The Flying Bridge Restaurant most every week. Bruno sings many of the songs that his family used to listen to on the radio and television in the late 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, line dance music and some of today’s trendy songs. He is also the host of “The Best Oldies Karaoke Show in Florida.”
