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.
