Roberto Cassani & The Tickety-Two - 23rd Oct 2014

Roberto Cassani & The Tickety-Two - 23rd Oct 2014

As Music News said "If he wasn’t amongst us already, somebody would have to invent Roberto Cassani, he’s such a blast of fresh air in a tired, self-regarding world." A little bit jazz, a little bit swing, a little bit blues, a whole load cabaret, with a splash of Tim Minchin and Tom Lehrer thrown in for good measure  

Roberto Cassani is the delightful double-bass slapping child of a threesome between swing, rock ‘n’ roll and the musical cabaret of Milan.  Joined by the Tickety Two, guitar maestro Owen Nicholson and renowned drummer Dave Clelland, and united by a love of their families, a laugh, 12 notes and good biscuits, they do what nobody in music seems to do: have a laugh. And make no mistake: these guys can play!   Their first album was released earlier this year - produced by the legendary Martin Stephenson, it is a live session recorded in one day.   

 

“Italian genius!  You gotta see this guy - he's like nothing on Earth!  Outstanding!”Martin Stephenson – UK music legend

"One of the finest blues-based players on the planet - and a very funny guy at that!"  Frank Hennessy, BBC Wales

"Cassani rocks" Rob Ellen

A true emerging star with side-splitting humour and clever lyrics which will see him firmly in place as a national icon"  Alan Wilson, The Courier

I have seen the future of rock ‘n’ roll – well actually, beautifully judged Scots-Italian songs that bring a smile to your face and a tear to your eye – and his name is Roberto Cassani"   Ronnie Gurr, Scotland's music guru

Excellent, Marvellous! Some of the wittiest and more perceptive songwriting you’ll ever hear. A great album that will really, really bring a smile to your face"   Tom Morton, BBC Radio
