Riccardo Grosso Blues Band loves to push the envelope of sound and energy of Blues music.

With silky and raspy enough vocals delivered by harmonica virtuoso Riccardo Grosso, this quartet stands-out for his take no prisoners approach, tight sound and greasy atmospheres.

An electrified harmonica far from sounding like the next Little Walter (inspired more by Paul Butterfield, Junior Wells and saxophones), a guitar with a stylish scholar attitude and sense of melody along with a tight-heavy and rocking rhythm section with some really Bluesy drums and a solid-rock bass.

Aren’t just words that can’t really describe what you may experience?

Riccardo performed with Johnny Sansone and John Fhol (Dr.John) while living in New Orleans, played with the Original Blues Brothers Band (video).

He played in International Blues Festivals touring Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Austria, Croatia, Poland, Slovakia, Italy with his band (featuring Massimo Fantinelli on bass and Stefano Pagotto on guitar) and performing in music clubs (mostly outside of Italy) as well.

Grosso and the band published two albums reviewed, aired and/or sold in Europe, U.S.A., Australia, Chile and won rave reviews both from media (“Real strokes of genius” – Roots Time, BE) and artists like Charlie Musselwhite, commenting “That’s Tremendous!” the sound of the band.

"That's why I love to take strictly Blues songs AND songs from outside this label but still with some good Bluesy meaning in them and use them as repertoire for my band. I'm in love with all the great Blues artists but I'm not and never be the kind of guy who is going to sound this or that artist riff. You'll never hear me saying 'did you hear that lick taken from Butterfield, Walter, Sonny Boy?' I think it's childish and I think music is just one whole thing where different accents are spoken and you can't say things taking other folks' stuff." - Riccardo Grosso
