The Cinelli Brothers return to Blues At The Tropic in Ruislip West London playing songs from their new album 'Villa Jukejoint' as well as songs from their debut album and some classic blues tunes. One of the best blues band currently playing in the UK.
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 for live performances are; Tom Julian-Jones on harmonica, guitar and vocals and Stephen Giry on bass, guitar and vocals.
The Cinelli Brothers 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 album which comprises of 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 original song and Prince’s ‘Kiss’, played in a remarkable shuffle rhythm, went to number 2 in the IBBA (Independent Blues Broadcasters' Association) in June 2018.
The band has been featured in many music magazines including; Blues in Britain, Blues Matters, and Classic Rock.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.
On the 30th of November 2021 the band released their second album 'Villa Jukejoint' along with a SOLD OUT show at the legendary 100 Club in London.
Recorded at their home studio with only 1 microphone, 'Villa Jukejoint' has a unique vintage and retro feel typical of the ‘50s and earlier ‘60s!
'Villa Jukejoint' was February album of the month for the IBBA, which broadcasted a different song each week. The album has also been featured in the music media in the UK, Spain and the Netherlands, with fantastic reviews.
In 2020, 2021 the band was nominated in the UK Blues Awards for “Blues Band Of the Year” and have been nominated again this year for “Blues Band Of the Year” and “Blues Album Of the Year” with “Villa Jukejoint”.
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.
