The Swing Pistols live
April 20th 2017
Pursued by expulsion and deportation papers, at the start of the new millennium The Swing Pistols decided to leave their beloved borough of Brooklyn (aka Broccolino) and RETURN to Italy, laND of origin of their grandparents.
Once in Rome, desperate and hungry, to make ends meet they began playing in dodgy bars around the Termini railway station. Soon their fame went beyond the boundaries of the district and they were called upon to play in prestigious venues like the Holy Music Hall, a nightclub in the Vatican City, the red light quarter of Rome.
Their music is a blend of Italian/American swing classics with boogie and r&r from the 40s/50s, and has now become their trademark.
The Swing Pistols are loved and appreciated by kindergarten children, yankee boys with quiffs, girls in polka-dot miniskirts and old men with walking-sticks. Swing & Boogie & Jump and Jive!!
The infamous members of The Swing Pistols are:
Marino Microphono – voice Alessandro Prettyface – guitar
Charlie Alcapone – bass Mario The Shrink – drums
Nat Sexysax – saxophone Sandro Shortie – trumpet
