The last night of the Fish and chips festival – Sagra del Pesce e Patate at the Moscardini Stadium in Barga was a swinging affair as The Aristodemos were there to add a musical presence to the event with their mixture of traditional Italian songs all laced with a heady mixture of swing.

As can be seen from the images above, this evening not just the Aristodemos took to the stage but also a series of their friends all joining in the fun.

The band came together in the winter of 2009 when local musicians Alessandro Rizzardi (mandolino), Keane (Percussioni), Fabio Guazelli (chitarra), Leo Gnesi (contro bass), and Andrea Gonnella (cantante) found each other in Da Aristo’s enoteca, with instruments in hand, and exciting ideas in mind and of course, passion in heart.

The addition of Ugo Menconi (Accordion) completed the line up and a new type of swing group was born.

Focusing mainly on forgotten swing Italiano from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s, The Aristodemos welcome you to jump back in time and into their salotto. You may also hear something contemporary swung into Aristo gear.
