France DICARLO as Keith Moon

Playing since the age of 11, France hails from New York. He began his band career playing high school dances, and extended beyond into the original scene with guitarist Mike Time and formed The Revs, Freddy Frogs, Dr Jimmy and the Who Show (tribute to The Who), and The Cream Revival Show (tribute to Cream). Touring New York to Florida, They went back to New York and played the circuit a few years. In 1986, France was introduced to Deacon LeBaron who pulled him into his project Fats Deacon and The Dumb Waiters with Wayne Kramer and Robert Watson. After establishing the band and getting signed to Ames Griffin Records, they set off on a tri-state tour headlining such venues as The Ritz, The Palladium, Electric Circus, C.B.G.B.’s, Left Bank, Rum Runners, Malibu, The Pier, and Central Park. They also supported a benefit concert with Rick Derringer, Johnny Winter, The Kinks, and the New York Dolls, Afterwards, Deacon disbanded The Dumb Waiters and he and France began a new act titled Baron Puppet. After completing an LP and video with Mick Rock (David Bowie), with huge success with the local Tri State music video stations then France decided to head to the west coast. Right away France played with numerous original and cover bands to find himself playing drums in the original band The Spill, (AAA) and landed an eight mouth residence at the world famous Kibitz room, Soon after, France decided to start up the Who tribute band again, this time calling it The Who Show. France has recorded in major studios all over the world, and with his lunatic madman antics he somehow manages to sound just like the greatest rock drummer of all time, Keith Moon. Friends of France tell him to be yourself, your France DiCarlo, a great drummer be yourself, France DiCarlo would say I love and respect Keith Moon so much I love keeping him alive through me, and I do.
