‘Twas a beautiful July 31st evening, 2021 at the Key West Theater benefiting Nicky’s Celebration (a local non-profit helping local families fight pediatric cancer).
Me and my very recently assembled Wayne “Led” Sorbelli’s Tribute to Led Zeppelin Show band consisting of 12 of the loveliest, hardest working musicians I know, rotating duties as their personal and professional schedules provided, worked up 12 of Zep’s greatest hits for the event.
I am very proud of everyone I worked with and the results. Look at song credits for a list of a names of my friends/players/cancer fighters/cancer survivors/and those like myself who had lost someone very close to them via cancer. We assembled and kicked cancers ass on that night. We raised peace signs, fists, hope, and many screaming testimony’s!!!
No better way to start something like this than to come out of the gate shooting from the hip with my little electric ukulele – it’s the smallest thing I play but makes ME feel way way bigger than I am – so it empowers me on stage – funny? – I guess – but it’s the truth. So I felt like a giant on stage playing a pretty easy guitar song (that’s a joke) on a little ukulele with a guitar pickup installed in it . It was a way to empower me and set the theme for the night’s comings – we were going to kick cancer in the balls on this night like giants. Like the Hammer of the Gods!!!! (But in our own Key West kind of quarkie weird little island way)

Thank you everyone. It’s time to help some little Key West children/angels & their families that need some relief/resources. I love ALL of you. Thank you for any & all help spreading the word of the cause & this benefit show to support the cause. Having lost NICKY our 10yr old son after fighting blood cancer so bravely for a year that seemed like 10, this is top shelf priority for me & my family. I like to kick cancer in the teeth every chance I get.
It’s all so painful for Jamie & I & my dear daughter Leela – but at the end of the day – we’ve either helped, or we didn’t – but no matter the pain, the mental low LOW points, the tears, envy, jealousy, survivor guilt, guilt of the NEVER ending urge to block my bad memories in ways that are very destructive & debilitating to my mind body & soul & destructive to my family unit – I AM In this for life – I’ll help fight cancer & those fighting as long as I can in life & til death and perhaps even beyond if I can figure out how. I’m on the front line for GOOD!!!!!!
Greetings family, friends, peers, brethren, brothers, sisters, students, & anyone who loves to ROCK OUT for a good cause— or anyone who hates cancer as much as I do!!!!! !!!
My Led Zeppelin Tribute band is opening a show at the Key West theater on July 31st, 2021 called (Bustin’ out of Quarantine) & the band we are opening for is called the (Parrothead Massacre) & they do some heavier music mixed with some comedy & tongue-in-cheek stuff with their professional quality covers of everything from MotorHead to Metallica all mixed with a spectacular sense of humor.
I’ll be using different musician friends to play different songs of my set. So far I’ve got Mark UVA Gambuzza of Parrot Head Massacre singing one, Rebecca Morse Whitten, Johnny Van Plant & David Bryce Warren singing a couple songs each, David Bryce Warren & Jannik Khaer doing some drums & percussion, Francois Gehin & Carter Moore playing some bass guitar, Island Guitar’s piano teacher James KingIII on keys, Key West artist/musician Zach Jones on harmonica – and more songs and artists are coming together everyday.
The show is a benefit for my Wife Jamie & I’s non-profit 501c in memory of our son NICKY Wayne Sorbelli, who lost his battle with blood cancer at age 10 after a hard & very long year’s battle.
My family now is forever part of the war on cancer, it’s cure, its prevention & working towards early detection abilities (which would increase treatment success rate exponentially)
— but most importantly we help those families still fighting the battle right here, right now!
We are warriors now. We never had the chance to say “no I’m not signing up for this”. Jamie & I didn’t get to choose any of this – but here we are in a battle of the flesh, mind, & soul!!!! Helping families & their children with their battle.
I promise to forever fight this disgusting evil cancer until death!! Please Help Us?
