PASSAIC, NJ -- Counter Revolution, an authorized distributor/fabricator of Silestone[r] quartz surfaces and natural stone, showed its customer appreciation in grand style, with a first-class barbecue at its facilities in Passaic, NJ. The party was not only complete with food, drinks and a live band, but also gave its guests the opportunity to meet some of the leading actors from HBO's hit series, The Sopranos.

The company, which is owned by childhood friends Leonardo (Lenny) Ventimiglia and Thomas Landers, received its big break in 2003, when it was awarded the exclusive Silestone distribution rights for North Jersey. Those in attendance at Counter Revolution's party were loyal customers, family members and friends, who have supported Ventimiglia and Landers in their business venture. One of the most exciting highlights of the evening was the arrival of Ventimiglia's younger brother, John, who plays the role of Artie Bucco on The Sopranos, as well as two of his colleagues, Steve R. Schirripa (Bobby “Bacala” Baccalieri) and Vince Curatola (Johnny “Sack” Sacramoni). The three actors warmly granted requests from guests to pose for pictures and sign autographs, but also found time to enjoy the food and entertainment.

In addition to the entertainment, Counter Revolution also had several tables where representatives from Silestone[r] and Formica[r] Stone displayed their products. And at the end of the evening, there were several door prizes raffled off to several guests.
