Bandini Announces the Launch of His Debut Album “Barflies”
After two years of intense work, Bandini’s debut album “Barflies” will be out on the 27th of April 2019.
This 11 tracks album follows the release of Bandini’s first EP “Cardboard Box and Paper Cups” launched last September via a flash 3 dates European tour and the Christmas single “The Painter”.
“Barflies” tells the fascinating story of Bandini’s past four years in London, made of up and downs and odd nights outs, describing a city of weird and wonderful. The album has been produced by renowned Soul artist, Camelle Hinds, and features many artists and musicians of the London’s Jazz and Blues underground independent scene.
“Barflies” launch gig will take place at St.John Church in Hoxton (London) as part of the Live at St.John events series organised by Go Out Tune with singer songwriter Amelle Rose as opening act.
Bandini is currently a resident act at the Spiritual Bar in Camden and recently wrote and performed with Victor Marichal the play “Barflies Tales”; an immersive piece of music, storytelling and theatre which debuted with a SOLD OUT date at The Half Moon in Putney.

Watch The Making of Barflies, a video produced by Seven/Eight creative studio that go through the creative process behind the album and all the people who collaborated to it.
Bandini is an exciting new contemporary artist, who through his reimagining of fusion music has successfully incorporated aspects of jazz, blues, rock and gypsy into a unique sound.
Through his rugged, intimate vocal approach he achieves a unique blend of magnetism; transforming his already dynamic musical output into a mesmerizing theatre show. Bandini has been described as Organic New Orleans Gypsy Blues Pop – (Tom Waits meets Louis Prima, Dr John and The Neville Brothers accompanied by Kid Creole’s Coconuts providing attitude harmony).
A keen love of storytelling is key to Bandini’s performance, a passion that emanates from his father’s taste in literature, with Alan Ginsberg, Charles Bukowski, John Fante, Henry Miller and the beat generation playing a key role in his performance.
