Mandolin' brothersThe start of the band dates back to September 1979, when Jimmy Ragazzon and Paolo Canevari started performing in a country-blues acoustic duo as the supporter group of the Treves Blues Band. In 1981 the first electric version set-up with bass and drums commits the Mandolins’ to rock-blues classics. At the beginning of the nineties, after much musical experience and as many line up changes, the band adds an accordion and keyboard ( piano organ ) and reintroduces the mandolin ( this time amplified ) drawing the band closer to the roots-rock sound. The latter varies from the Mexican-border and the Louisiana-swamp-rock to the ballads of solo artists, without ever forgetting their blues roots.
