News concerning the musical career of Simone Venturi and the band Meez Pheet has appeared on this site a number of times over the past two years.

Their two singles were placed on the best online stores like iTunes : “My Pretensions ” and “I Do not Like It”. They participated as guests at the Pistoia Blues 2013 Blues Festival, Camigliano, Torrita Blues Festival and appeared in positive reviews in the magazine Blues.

The repertoire of the band is “black”, a complicated and fascinating tangle of NU Soul, Hip Hop, Funk, Jazz all at the service of the groove and ‘ interplay. A tribute, both in the original songs and in covers, to the greats of soul music.

In February they launched a crowd sourcing appeal to raise money for the recording and production of a new CD (article here)

We believe that we are making something new in Italy and we would like more people, all around the world can listen what we have to say – Meez Pheet
Meez Pheet are: Fiorella Ekwueme (vocals), Simone Venturi (keyboards, backing vocals , groovebox ), Fabio Pierotti ( guitar ) , Fabrizio ” Leo” Leo (bass) and Andrew Giannelli (drums).

That crowd sourcing appeal was successful, they went on to record their new CD and this weekend they celebrated the release of the disc with a party and concert at Villa Libano.

An exuberant, loud and fun filled party it was too with dancers filling the music room at the Villa and spilling out into the courtyard.

In one of the quieter moments just before the concert the above interview was recorded with Simone Venturi and Andrea Guzzoletti during which the news was officially announced that Meez Pheet have not just got a new CD on the market but they are now signed to Andrea’s Even Eight Records – publishing house.

A mente fredda ( non lucida purtroppo … è lunedì mattina e sono in ufficio ) desidero ringraziare tutti coloro che sono venuti al Release Party dei Meez Pheet. E’ stata una bella serata resa possibile certamente da voi tutti che non vi siete risparmiati in applausi, partecipazione e calore. Tra i tanti mi senti di ringraziare, oltre naturalmente ai Meez Pheet tutti, quindi Fiorella, Fabio, Andrea e Leo , la mia bimba Serena , la mia famiglia e soprattutto la mia stoica nonna che alla veneranda età di 92 anni se n’è stata li tranquilla fino a mezzanotte e mezzo battendo diversi giovanotti ( almeno nei sui confronti ) che non hanno retto il colpo e mio fratello Giuseppe Jos Venturi senza in quale nemmeno le prime copie del CD sarebbero potute arrivare in tempo. Ringrazio poi tutti gli amici che sono intervenuti: Rick Lorenzetti, Monica Bertolozzi, Flavio Pulerà, Freddy Delirio, Maurizio Poli, Marco Del Papa, Massimo Ceccarelli, Federica Del Carlo, Geoffrey Collins-White (nostro pronunciation coach), Mirko Muccini, Monika Pawlikowska, GeiGei Cardellino, Keane. Ringrazio poi tutto lo staff del Nuovo Circolo dei Differenti che ci ha ospitato nella bellissima cornice di Villa Libano.
Un pensiero particolare va al mio amico Fabio Pierotti. Un abbraccio bro. – Simone Venturi
