The year was 2006 and here we were, just three parties deep into our new venture that was Faded Industry Entertainment. Young, naive, and stupid, we found ourselves celebrating our new found success with copious amounts of alcohol atop a new boutique nightclub located in Pittsburgh’s Strip District called PURE. Our bottle service waitress comes to our table and says, “Hey, aren’t you those Faded guys?” and at that point, we feel as if we’ve already made it. 2am is way too early to end a night like this so we continued the party at the only after-hours spot available, Club Erotica. And that is also the night when we met the man who ran it all, Vince Isoldi, the Godfather of Pittsburgh…
Vince Isoldi’s story will become mainstream as he starts in A&E’s new series, The Godfather of Pittsburgh.
For Vince Isoldi nothing is more important than family. Some may say he’s a gangster but according to Vince, he’s just a good businessman. An entrepreneur with a sordid past, Vince has built an empire in Pittsburgh, from nightclubs to real estate, all in hopes of providing a better life for his family. Unfortunately, getting to the top means making a lot of enemies and in Vince’s case some of them are family. “Godfather of Pittsburgh,” follows Vince as he balances his family life while trying to walk the ‘straight and narrow’ and still succeed in business.
The series premieres Monday, November 10 at 10pm ET/PT on A&E. The eight one hour episode series will follow Vince Isoldi, his wife, Carla, sons Enzo, Adolfo and Romeo and father-in-law Junior Williams, the last of whom is “the Numbers King” of Pittsburgh.
