On what seemed like a spring day with bright blue sky and high temperatures, the annual Autumn Festa took place this afternoon in Barga Vecchia.
The Aristodemos were there to add their touch of swing to the event as chestnuts were roasted over open fires outside Da Aristos.
Normally for the Autumn festa there would have been mulled wine on offer but as the temperature was so warm it was more a case of chilled and iced drinks on offer.
The seasons are all upside down.
The Aristodemo’s are: Andrea Gonnella (Vocals), Keane (percussioni / percussion), Renato Marcianò ( Basso), Alessandro Rizzardi (Mandolino / Mandolin and Sax), Fabio Guazzelli (chitarra / guitar)
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 Aristo’s enoteca, with instruments in hand, and exciting ideas in mind and of course, passion in heart.
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.
