"After 36 years, Mario has recently returned to the music scene practicing arduously and reawakening the young jazz talent within."


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 recently performed a tour in Italy which was celebrated by national radio and television. The tour was very successful and as such Mario has been asked to return next year.

Mario has played and recorded with the likes of Pat Labarbera, Roberto Occhipinti, Freddie Stone, David Young and Mark Kelso.

Mario's new CD called "Valentina" was released in November 2010. Radio stations in North America, Europe and Japan are broadcasting the songs on the CD.
