Bandini is pure, wild energy on stage. Described as “the bastard son of Tom Waits and Cab Calloway” by The Troubadour in London, he mentions Van Morrison, Dr.John, Tom Waits and The Clash among his main influences, which have brought him to blend jazz, blues, rock and gypsy into a dynamic live show.
This, combined with his enigmatic and theatrical stage performances have led Bandini to become one of the most relevant and exciting emerging artists today.
Hailing from Italy, Bandini’s musical influences originally come from his creative family. After some adventures in the Italian punk-rock scene and a degree in Theatre Performance in Milan, Bandini moved to London and began playing extensively at high profile music venues such as the 100 Club, the Green Note, and The Half Moon where he received critical and popular acclaim.
During the pandemic he began to work with the multi-awarded immersive show One Night Records, where he became resident artist in 2022. Artist director Phoebe Stringer describes him as “The best in the business. When he’s on the line up you know you’re going to be in for a hell of an evening!”
Recently, Bandini was selected as best London Act to perform in Trafalgar Square for St.George day by the mayor of London and chosen for X-Factor Italy 2023.
