Bonies & Hot Sausages

The history of Bonies & Hot Sausages begins between the end of the 90s and the 2000s. In that period Fabio Bonomi (bass player) and Simone Piva (guitar player) were part of a project that included long sessions of acoustic improvisation in the most various places; abandoned factories, warehouses roofs, woods. It often happened that there were some people to attend to everything and among them Alberto Fabbris (guitar and vocals) and Daniele Fabbris (drums) before as spectators and then as musicians. There was a magic atmosphere, 70’s style, but then their roads were divided for years on various projects until the year 2012 when, for various concidences, they meet gain to create new music that were inspired by the past moments. In 2017 Simone left the band and now Fabio, Daniele and Alberto go on playing the music written together.
Since 2012, Bonies and Hot Sausages share their rock music all round the pubs and festivals and in the spring of 2014 they also released a self-produced EP named “Ancient Jar”.

The Guy From The Hills

Blues from Italy

The Guy From The Hills

il progetto "the guy from the hills" nasce nell'inverno 2017 quando dopo anni passati a suonare in giro per l'Italia con le mie band ho deciso di omaggiare il mio amore per il blues, il folk blues ed il country blues iniziando un'avventura solista molto intima e minimale, vicina il più possibile alle radici di questa musica.
Dal vivo propongo un repertorio che spazia da mostri sacri come blind willie johnson, robert johnson, muddy waters ad artisti più recenti ed alcuni brani originali, il tutto suonato principalmente con la mia cigar box guitar autocostruita.

Band Member: Ivano Nichetti (cigar box guitar, chitarra resofonica, voce)

NSJB - NonSiamoJukeBox

Rock from Italy

NSJB - NonSiamoJukeBox

Eccoci ancora a Coiromonte, e questa è l’ottava volta in pochi anni. Ormai conoscete la nuova formazione con due chitarre, già presente allo Spirit of Woodstock nel 2016, nel 2017 e nel 2018. Gli anni avanzano ma abbiamo ancora tanta voglia di suonare e di mettere assieme pezzi nuovi per rinnovare sempre il nostro repertorio e regalare nuove emozioni.
L’atmosfera è sempre quella, buon vecchio rock – the good old rock – suonato per far cantare e per far ballare, muovendosi con i pezzi più veloci e lasciandosi coinvolgere da vecchie ballate. Il sound con due chitarre è pieno e caldo, le tastiere stendono un suggestivo tappeto musicale, i tasti del pianoforte marcano riff e melodie e basso e batteria sono lì a dare ritmo e movimento alla musica. Questo è quello che ascolterete, niente musica house, dance, hip-hop, techno, diavolerie elettroniche. Solo questi vecchi strumenti appartenenti all’anima rock per ricordarci e ricordare cosa era la musica di 40/50 anni fa.

Band Members: Fabrizio Battista (tastiere) • Mario Carlevaro (chitarra basso) • Moreno Ciana (chitarra) • Gisella Gallarotti (voce) • Rolando Maulini (batteria) • Giorgio Platini (chitarra)

Tommy Ocean

Singer / Songwriter from Germany

Tommy Ocean

Tommy Ocean is a singer/songwriter based in Breisach, Germany who is influenced by classic American folk music, records his music live, and brings his fans the kind of real human experience not often found in the modern world. Ocean is an original talent in today’s plastic sea and demonstrates the power that still remains in the simple combination of voice and guitar. His debut indie release, Tommy Ocean, is a fine introduction to his world and shows Ocean to be an excellent guitarist, a keen lyricist, and an easy, natural performer. His songs show traces of Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Johnny Cash, and James Taylor but Tommy maintains his own unique style in everything he does. A new EP, Live in Heidelberg, dropped March 1st, 2019.
Ocean’s journey into music began in childhood and continued into his teens, learning to play guitar and sing, but he then took a 20-year detour into a medical career. He’s only been all-in on original music since 2017 when he had his magic conversion experience playing and singing around a campfire in Northern Denmark to people who were amazed by his voice and skills. He had never connected with an audience like that before and now chasing that connection is all he wants to do. He doesn’t know if his music will change the world but he hopes it might bring some comfort to good people stuck in bad situations.
Tommy has played to receptive crowds in Cologne, Paris, Barcelona, London, New York, and many other cities and he’s been steadily growing his fanbase and personal brand. The music world is starting to catch on to Tommy Ocean and 2019 looks to be a big year for him. Fans of authentic singer/songwriters need to discover him today.
