Shout Sister Shout:

"It was a hot crowd in Norfolk, especially for a Sunday matinee, and The DiGis responded with a brilliant show, a work of art, Bruegel's Peasant Wedding Dance with touches of the Water-Lilies at Giverny. Thrilling tight three-part harmonies delivered with a wacky jazz feel by three women who inspire each other. The DiGis are real sisters from Brooklyn with real individual lives, menfolk, small children, and the trio is only for fun, but if America is looking for a hot new vocal group that combines the Boswells with the Percales and the Wailin' Jennys, here it is right here."
— Garrison Keillor

About the Album:

Recalling the jaunty harmonies of such 1940s stars as the Andrews Sisters, these three singing sisters from Brooklyn put on an irresistible show. Veterans of A Prairie Home Companion and New York performances from cabarets to Carnegie Hall, the sisters bring their signature sound, accompanied by their friend, one of Broadway's hottest music directors, Rob Fisher (Anything Goes). Shout Sister Shout was recorded LIVE at the Virginia Arts Festival early in 2013. It is the first full-length release from this incredible singing trio.

About the Artists:

The DiGiallonardo Sisters

The DiGiallonardo Sisters — Daniela, Nadia, and Christine — started singing together when they were kids Brooklyn. They still call Brooklyn home, and they still love stacking up those three-part harmonies. Now, Daniela teaches social studies at Brooklyn's Mark Twain Intermediate School for the Gifted & Talented; Nadia is a pianist, composer, arranger, and singer; and Christine is a singer and actor whose credits include Two Gentlemen of Verona (Shakespeare in the Park Festival).

Rob Fisher

A recognized authority on American music and musical theater, Rob Fisher spent four seasons leading the Coffee Club Orchestra for Garrison Keillor's American Radio Company. He is creator and artistic director of the annual Lyrics and Lyricist series at the 92nd Street Y. For his work as music director and conductor of the Tony Award-winning Encores! series at New York's City Center, he was presented the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Special Achievement.
