EUROPEAN BOOKING (except France!)

Jimi Barbiani feat. Taucher, Mansutti & Tavian

There is now an interesting, revived blues rock scene in Europe. But only a few representatives have the quality that JIMI BARBIANI brings to light!

In his career so far, this outstanding guitarist has collaborated with Johnny Neal, the keyboardist of the Allman Brothers Band and Gov't Mule. He has shared the stage with artists such as Eric Sardinas, John Mooney, Johnny Neel, Tishamingo, North Mississippi All Stars, Devon Allman, Mac Ford, Andy J Forest, Buddy Wittingstone.

With Barbiani, not only is the foundation right, but also the groove and the rock & roll feel.

Barbiani - Taucher - Mansutti - Tavian is a jam band with a remarkable chemistry and a great sound that combines blues, jazz, rock and funk.

The unique sound of the Hammond organ of Pietro Taucher - one of the five best keyboardists of the genre - merges with the guitar of Jimi Barbiani - one of the best rock-blues-slide guitarists in Europe - and the accomplished drummer Alessandro Mansutti is in demand in the best jazz ensembles. 
Andrea Tavian on his base provides the right drive.


You could call it a "superband" made up of exceptional individuals. Their repertoire combines original material and a range of rock, blues, funk and jazz classics.

Vintage equipment including old guitars, amplifiers, Hammond organ, Leslie speakers and the band members' years of experience make up the trio's great sound.

Their passionate show convinces concert promoters and audiences alike. Blues is on the rise and has enjoyed increasing popularity in Europe lately, as the sales figures of Bonamassa or bands like the Blue Pills impressively prove. If you like down-to-earth, catchy blues rock, you can't miss JIMI BARBIANI.




Press quote: 

"In the U.S., Jimi Barbiani would be a sought-after guitarist.... he is warm, subtle and rigorous, in the Jimi Hendrix manner, he is a first class guitarist"

(Mauro Zambellini – Buscadero)


"...the guitarist is the absolute leader on stage, with an extemporized steady flow of inspiration and an excellent slide ability

...who doesn't lose anything in comparison with the most titled world famous guitarists."

(Riccardo Capelli - Chitarre)


Blues is on the rise and has recently become increasingly popular again in Europe, as the sales figures of Bonamassa or bands like the Blue Pills impressively prove. If you like down-to-earth catchy blues rock, you should give the Jimi Barbiani Band a chance and buy a ticket for the 'Ten O'Clock Train'. "One of the best blues rock albums of this year.

(Michael - Whisky Soda)


Only a few representatives in the newly inflamed blues-rock scene have the quality that the JIMI BARBIANI BAND brings to light again this time!

(Björn Backes - Power


"For me, the Italian is on a par with Bonamassa".

(T. Schmal - Rock Circuz)


Jimi Barbiani is a born live entertainer.

(Eric Schuurmans - Rootstime /Belgium)


Jimi Barbiani - The Ceasar of Slide



It is practically impossible to summarize in a few lines what Jimi Barbiani stands for. He is a living legend. Music can still teach us a lot today, and Jimi Barbiani and his excellent band is a great tutor.
