To Mask Or Not To Mask?

To Mask Or Not To Mask

Dear friends and fans,

it is madness but it is nobody faults. We were ready to rehearsal new songs, new sounds and ready to get on the road heading Slovenia and Croatia.

We are not making it this year. The elephant in the room is called “Covid 19” as we all know and it is keep on taking its live music toll too.

We got an email yesterday from Slovenia where they are telling us the government put more restriction to avoid groups of people standing close and spreading the virus again, due to a rising of infected people there.

We talked to the team at Jerry Rick’s Blues Festival – it should have been Riccardo’s third year in a row as performing artist. For everybody’s safety and health we decided it is wiser to reschedule our gig for 2021. Yes, we are positive (no pun intended) about next year: the coronavirus will be gone.

In the meantime we feel really sorry to not be able to see you all again, this summer, smiling, enjoying the music, dancing, drinking and…

We are all together into this and we will be back at our regular life sooner than soon!

Let’s stay in touch.

RG

 

To Mask Or Not To Mask

 

 

PS: let’s face it. It’s impossible to play harmonica through a mask. And we aren’t risking your health to perform one show more to satisfy the ego.

We love you all, and we know you feel it. – RG

2020 New Album On The Way

2020 New Album On The Way

After the new team-up with Flavio, Cocco and Federico and working the music the old way and with the old school in the heart (performing live and trying to do better at every chance – working behind the scene with rehearsal and idea exchanging) – Riccardo Grosso Blues Band is now mixing a new live album.

 

It was multitrack recorded on July 2019 at Seravezza Blues Festival and thanks to Giovanni Grasso and the guys of the team that we can’t thank enough – we had the recordings and sent the steams to Bill Roberts, an old school engineer from U.S.A who worked with some top names and mastered “21.12 – live at Teatro Del Pane”.

 

 

“Why another live album?”, you may ask.

 

I feel like it’s needed to comunicate what we are now, who these musicians are and what it means in matter of overall sound. The material was good and reflect a honest performance of what we were becoming and it captures us live, without any filter and it says…’ok, from now that’s what it’s coming’…” answers Riccardo.

 

The album is coming out at the beginning of 2020 and will be ready for the Austrian Bluesharp Meeting in April for sure…
