The Cinelli Brothers feat. Marcelo Naves Tuesday 07 April 2020 21:30 Boisdale of Canary Wharf Restaurant

Authentic Chicago and Texas blues with a modern edge!
 

The Cinelli Brothers is a project born out of a common passion for the electric Chicago and Texas blues from the 60s and 70s, when brothers Marco (guitarist and lead singer) and Alessandro (drummer) decided to form an explosive team showcasing original repertoire in the style of Chess, Stax and Motown.

Joining the two brothers on stage, Enzo Strano on bass and Tom Julian-Jones on harmonica and guitar. Their debut album Babe Please Set Your Alarm was recorded at the Soup Studio in London and the full live and analog recording was released in May 2018 on vinyl and digital format. The record went number 2 in the IBBA (Independent Blues Broadcasters' Association) in June 2018.

The band has been featured in Blues in Britain, Blues Matters, Classic Rock and other magazines. This album comprises nine tasty original compositions and three finely crafted covers. ‘Chain of Fools’ by Don Covay (an Aretha hit), ‘Back Door Man’ – which stays true to Willie Dixon’s number - and Prince’s ‘Kiss’, in a remarkable shuffle rhythm. Music Republic Magazine nominated Marco Cinelli as Best Guitar Player of 2018. Legendary radio and broadcaster David ‘Kid’ Jensen has played a different track from their album on six consecutive weeks of his United Djs radio show, naming them as his favourite blues outfit, and his favourite blues album in many years.

The Cinelli Brothers champion a new generation of passionate musicians sharing in the love of Blues, Soul, R&B and the true authentic sounds that have made the blues a cornerstone of music history.

“The best blues outfit since the Red Devils.” – Stevie Nimmo

“My new favourite band”. – Steve “West” Weston
