The Cinelli Brothers + Breezy Rodio


The Cinelli Brothers

You won’t get a better evening of the best in Blues anywhere in the UK when on Friday we host the Cinelli Brothers supported by rising US Blues star Breezy Rodio. The Cinelli Brothers have come a long way since first appearing at St Harmonicas a few years ago. Now acknowledged as "One of the best blues bands playing in the UK and Europe!”, The Cinelli Brothers are a London based four-member band comprised of italian brothers Marco and Alessandro Cinelli, Tom Julian Jones, a London native, and Stephen Giry from France. The band tours extensively in the UK and Europe, and won the 2022 UK Blues Challenge being named the best blues band in the UK. They went on to win the silver medal (2nd place) in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in March 2023. The Cinelli Brothers' passion for the blues/rock music of the 1960s and 1970s underlies their original material, which defies categorization but can best be described as an amalgam of blues, rock and soul with a twist of contemporary style, crossing boundaries and attracting both older and younger fans to their shows. The band has released three albums to date, and recently recorded a new record in Woodstock, NY, scheduled for release in the beginning of 2024. The Cinelli Brothers have recently returned from an International Blues Cruise playing along side Joe Bonamassa; we’re delighted to welcome them back to St Harmonicas this Friday.

“One of the very best blues outfits you’ll hear in decades, The Cinelli Brothers… Destined For Blues Stardom…” - Music Republic Magazine

And this is a double header as The Cinelli’s have insisted that Breezy Rodio supports this evening. Fabrizio Rodio billed professionally as Breezy Rodio is an Italian born, American based Chicago blues singer, guitarist, and songwriter. He has been based in Chicago, Illinois, for over 20 years and has released six albums in his own name. By any standard, Breezy Rodio’s blues odyssey has encompassed quite a few more miles than that of most up ­and ­coming musicians now riding the competitive Chicago circuit.

His latest CD, “Underground Blues” is a combination of traditional and modern indie Blues. Produced by Texas Guitar legend Anson Funderburgh. Recorded at The Wire Studios in Austin, TX in 2022 by Stuart Sullivan.

"Breezy reaffirms his crisp, clean mastery of electric blues guitar, displaying a keen sense of tradition and proving himself a convincing vocalist as well."

"Breezy has become one of the top players in town, fronting a band that breathes the very essence of blues."

” Breezy Rodio shows that he is well enough entrenched in the Chicago blues community to summon an A list of accompanists and guests from Lurrie Bell to organist Chris Foreman.......immaculately tasteful vocals and guitar, displaying a noteworthy affinity with the legacies of T-Bone Walker and B.B. King.”
