Real questions from clients

Can you perform outdoors? (asked by Marina on 8 December 2020)

Response from Stefano: Yes, but we require a shady area to perform of at least 4 metres length x 2 metres depth, not far from an electric socket.

What else do you require? (asked by Marina on 8 December 2020)

Response from Stefano: We also need a dressing room to change clothes and washroom facilities.

Do you require parking close to the venue? (asked by Marina on 8 December 2020)

Response from Stefano: Yes, we have to install some heavy equipment (amps etc.) so the area where we play must be reachable by car.


In italiano

Il trio The Tuscany Swing Band nasce dall’unione di tre musicisti provenienti da estrazioni musicali eterogenee con un ampia esperienza professionale e con la stessa passione e curiosità per diversi linguaggi musicali. Con la stessa voglia di divertirsi facendo divertire chi ascolta.

Il Progetto. Il trio The Tuscany Swing Band nasce dall’idea di offrire uno spettacolo musicale di alta qualità interamente suonato dal vivo.

L’ottima preparazione musicale e la lunga esperienza professionale dei componenti garantiscono performance artistiche sempre di alto livello; così come lo studio approfondito del repertorio, la creazione di arrangiamenti originali e gli anni di pratica in ogni sorta di contesto: dai festival di strada ai concerti in teatri e auditorium, dai locali agli hotel di gran lusso e alle feste private.

Il sound. La chitarra, il pianoforte, il rullante e la voce sono strumenti ricchi di infinite sfumature e come tutti gli strumenti acustici sono in grado di sfruttare una illimitata gamma di dinamiche.

La voce calda e avvolgente si alternerà con le improvvisazioni strumentali del pianoforte e della chitarra sostenuti dal ritmo incalzante e discreto del rullante suonato con le spazzole.

Il repertorio è molto vasto ed attinge da vari generi musicali. Arricchito da arrangiamenti originali, esso spazia principalmente dallo swing italiano, europeo e americano degli anni ’40 agli standard jazz, senza escludere la Bossa Nova e brani strumentali come valzer musettes, beguine e altro.

Un occhio di riguardo viene rivolto alla canzone italiana che “ha girato il mondo” ovvero quella dell’era dello swing, quella delle vecchie radio e dei giradischi. Insomma quei “motivetti” che piacciono tanto in tutto il mondo.

"Stefano, Helena and the band were just incredible. The saxophonist/clarinet was beautiful and captivating, and so was the Double Bass. We enjoyed the most beautiful evening of fun, laughter and music. They were also very flexible and accommodating with requests. I would highly recommend Tuscany Swing Band and would definitely book them again."

"The Tuscany Swing Band were highly professional and we were lucky to be able to book them for our daughter‘s wedding celebration. Stefano responded quickly to my initial enquiry and discussed the set with my daughter and son-in-law before the day. The music they played was perfect for a summer wedding and created a relaxed and fun atmosphere which everyone enjoyed. I would definitely recommend them for any event where top quality live music is required."

"Abbiamo ballato e cantato fino alle 2:30 del mattino! Ospiti scatenati e contentissimi e tutto ciò grazie a questo fantastico trio! Hanno dato il meglio di loro durante l'aperitivo e grazie alla playlist di sottofondo durante la cena i nostri ospiti non si sono mai annoiati. Ci hanno accontentato in tutte le richieste dal ballo degli sposi fino alla fine. Insomma soddisfatti, li raccomandiamo caldamente!"

"Sono davvero delle belle persone e professionisti eccezionali e sinceramente c'è dispiaciuto farli suonare solo in chiesa e non al ricevimento (perché avevamo già preso accordi con un nostro amico), ma sicuramente per qualsiasi altra cerimonia in futuro saranno loro che sceglieremo senza ombra di dubbio. Lei ha una voce meravigliosa !!!!! Bravissima!! Siamo diventati vostri fans :) Con simpatia un salutone, Concetta e Massimiliano matrimonio."

"Il gruppo Tuscany Swing Band ha suonato per il nostro matrimonio in maniera impeccabile. Sono stati bravissimi, professionali e disponibili. Hanno subito recepito e accolto le nostre esigenze, sia per la parte live, durante la cerimonia e l'aperitivo, sia per quanto riguarda le musiche registrate e il servizio dj, per la cena e il dopocena. Hanno alternato canzoni italiane, brasiliane, francesi e in lingua inglese, accontentando in tutto e per tutto le nostre richieste, che non erano semplici (trattandosi di un matrimonio con tanti invitati stranieri). Abbiamo ballato fino alle 4 del mattino, o forse di più, tutti si sono divertiti. Sono stati spettacolari e il prezzo che richiedono non è affatto eccessivo. Raccomando vivamente."

"Per noi la musica durante il matrimonio era fondamentale ma non avevamo le idee troppo precise. Grazie ai consigli e all'esperienza di Stefano ed Elena abbiamo avuto un bellissimo accompagnamento musicale sia durante la cerimonia che durante il ricevimento. Tutti i nostri ospiti si sono congratulati con noi per la scelta di questo gruppo. La voce da brivido di Elena durante la cerimonia, la suggestione della musica dal vivo durante il ricevimento, con degli strumentisti veramente di alto livello e la versatilità nell'assecondare qualsiasi richiesta musicale fino ad arrivare a ballate più commerciali. Inoltre abbiamo apprezzato moltissimo anche il loro dress code. Ringraziamo Stefano, Elena e gli altri musicisti per aver accompagnato magistralmente la nostra giornata, li sceglieremmo altre mille volte."
