contributed From a press release sent to the Valley Indy by the office of Ansonia Mayor David Cassetti Aug. 4:

The official ribbon-cutting and grand re-opening of Ansonia’s Banko’s Music took place Thursday (Aug. 3) as more than 50 folks packed the late afternoon ceremony.

Those in attendance included Mayor David Cassetti, state Rep. Linda Gentile, Valley Chamber of Commerce President Bill Purcell, former Banko’s owner Joe Salvati, new owner Joe Shapiro, Second Ward Aldermen Lorie Vaccaro, Fifth Ward Alderman Joe Jaumann, and Seventh Ward Alderman Frank DeLibero.

The popular music destination business in downtown Ansonia dates back to 1955.

Shapiro recently bought the business, which has undergone a top-to-bottom renovation and façade makeover.
