More than 100 people sat down in the main piazza in Castelnouvo last night (which had been closed to traffic for the occasion) and enjoyed freshly roasted chicken and some swing music from the Barga band, The Aristodemo’s.
The band came together in the winter of 2009 when local musicians Alessandro Rizzardi (mandolino), Keane (bodhran and cajón), 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.
The special guest last night was Mirco Capecchi on double–bass
