RICCARDO GROSSO BAND (IT)

Music-Style: Urban Blues


RICCARDO GROSSO BLUES BAND "This is great"
(Charlie Musselwhite)

Harmonica virtuoso and passionate vocalist Riccardo Grosso couldn't play anything else. He didn't choose to play the blues, the blues chose him, a musician under the wing of the devil.

To make a long story short, Riccardo started listening to the blues before he could say "mama", thanks to the records
that were played in his parents' house.

Riccardo worked hard and conquered and showed his talent on stages everywhere from New Orleans (USA), where he played with multiple Blues Award winner Johnny Sansone, John Fhol (Dr. John). During his stay in the USA he had the opportunity to sit in the garden of Charlie Musselwhite and to play and learn harmonica directly from the master himself.
 
With their music, the Riccardo Grosso Band thrilled their live audience and the in Switzerland, Austria, Germany, France, Croatia and Poland. In 2019, he played with the Original Blues Brothers Band as a special guest at the New Year's Eve concert.

Grosso left his secure job to follow his dream of being a full-time musician. Riccardo delivers an energetic show with his music rooted in the urban blues tradition and has his own unique style.

The band's music features songs with meaning and lyrics that have an impact and a message that you can relate to. He and his band show off their skills when they improvise during their performances, making each performance unique.

The Riccardo Grosso band has the ability to to thrill an audience.  Experience their extraordinary talent when you see them live.

 

These musicians love to play Blues and love to put their on spice on it. A natural path for this approach is the original material. Keeping the band personality on the songs while staying in the Blues frame
