The Cinelli Brothers is a project born out of a common passion for the electric Chicago and Texas blues from the 60s and 70s, when brothers Marco (guitarist and lead singer) and Alessandro (drummer) decided to form an explosive team showcasing original repertoire in the style of Chess, Stax and Motown. Joining the two brothers on stage are Tom Julian-Jones on harmonica, guitar and vocals and Stephen Giry on bass, guitar and vocals. They champion a new generation of passionate musicians sharing in the love of Blues, Soul, R&B and the true authentic sounds that have made the blues a cornerstone of music history.

In September 2022 the band won the UK Blues Challenge and in January 2023 the band ranked number 2 at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, US. Their debut album Babe Please Set Your Alarm was recorded at the Soup Studio in London and the full live and analog recording was released in May 2018 on vinyl and digital format.

Music Republic Magazine nominated Marco Cinelli as Best Guitar Player of 2018. November 2021 the band released their second album “Villa Jukejoint” in conjunction with a SOLD OUT show at the legendary 100 Club in London. Recorded at home with only 1 microphone, the record has a unique vintage and retro feel typical of the ‘50s and earlier ‘60s!

In 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 the band has been nominated for the UK Blues Awards as “Blues Band Of the Year”. In January 2022 the record “Villa Jukejoint” was nominated for the UK Blues Awards as “Blues Album Of the Year”. In January 2023 the record “No Country For Bluesmen” was nominated for the UK Blues Awards as “Blues Album Of the Year”.

And now we have Almost Exactly, a brand new album filled to the max with vintage stuff: the best and most versatile retro bluesy rock’n roll, spcied with funk, soul and everything else that makes the Cinelli Brothers one of the hottest tickets in blues land. Go see and experience them live, but don’t you dare miss this album.
