The Cinelli Brothers

The Cinelli Brothers have a passion for the music of the 1960’s, an amalgam of blues, rock and soul, and add a twist of contemporary style, making them a rising force on the music scene. Their appeal crosses all manner of boundaries, attracting a significantly younger crowd to their shows as well as pleasing the ears of older fans. Brothers Marco (guitar, keys, vocals) and Alessandro (drums, B/V’s) are joined by Tom Julian-Jones (guitar, harmonica, vocals) and Stephen Giry (bass, guitar, B/V’s). The band has released three albums to date:

Babe Please Set Your Alarm (2018)

Villa Juke Joint (2021)

No Country For Bluesmen (2022), featuring guests on every track, including Dana Gillespie, Ian Siegal, Big Joe Louis and many up and coming stars of the British blues scene.

The Cinelli Brothers tour widely in the UK and across Europe, playing clubs and festivals, delivering live shows of predominantly original material with high energy, great musicianship and showmanship. They have been nominated for UK Blues Awards and are establishing themselves as one of the leading lights of the UK blues scene. Definitely a band not to be missed!

Redfish Blues Band

“A four-piece oozing with style and talent” Blues Matters Magazine

The Redfish Blues Band have travelled a VERY long way in VERY short time. The U.K. Blues Award nominees have not only developed a distinctive and defining style of their own, featuring the astonishing vocal and guitar talents of Christian Sharpe and the awe-inspiring swirling Hammond organ of Steve McGuckin, they have collaborated with the very best in the blues community, as featured artists on the superb Cinelli Brothers-produced album “No Country For Bluesmen”, considered to be a recent “who’s who” of British musicianship. Christian Sharpe is the consummate master of his craft, delivering jaw-dropping dynamics, tone and phrasing, together with an unforgettable vocal range and soaring power. With Steve McGuckin’s “tower of power” Hammond/ Leslie, he is backed by the rock solid and sympathetic rhythm section of Rod Mackay (bass) and Steve Gibson on drums.

With influences including Clapton, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Jimmie Vaughan,
Booker T, and “all the Kings”, this must-see, must-hear band has developed a
delicious, bubbling gumbo of blues, soul, gospel and funk, with live performances
defined by both energy and restraint, and the visibly obvious delight of personal
interaction, in the moment, between performers at the very top of their game.
