OASIS TRIBUTE BAND FROM TURIN (ITALY)

 

OBVIOUSLY WE MUST EDIT THIS PAGE, BECAUSE SO MANY THINGS ARE CHANGED FROM 2009… BUT WE LIKE REMEMBER THE GOOD TIMES, WHEN WE WERE NOTHING, AND WE DIDN’T KNOW WHERE WE WERE GOING TO… 

 

The Band was founded in 2009, from the idea of ​​three friends, Umberto, Glauco and Alessandro.

Umberto, big fan of Oasis and Brit-Pop, proposes the project of a tribute to his best friend, awesome guitarist and schoolmate Glauco, though at the beginning he doesn’t agree to join the band. The reasons why? Doubts about the success of the idea at a time in which in Turin live music was (and still is) not so popular, the fear of not finding the motivation to stay in a band for a long time, excessive and obsessive musical search for perfection, that limits any great musician who doesn’t know to be already perfect!

Shortly,  too many doubts were blasting everything, so Umberto thought to abandon the stage, knowing that no other musicians were so good and talented as the actual members of the band.

But everything changes during a ride with old friends, when Alessandro, a self-taught bassist, convinces Glauco to join the project, supported by the fact that Umberto already know a good drummer with whom he played in the past. Now the roles are assigned: Liam, Noel, Andy, Chris (although Andrea looks like like Alan White). And the second guitar (Gem)?

The auditions began. The memebers of the band don’t believe what they see in those months of unnecessary and expensive rehearsal in the most important test rooms in Turin. People without a good amp or gear, guitars awful, but mostly musicians with a bad character, and an inadequate technique.

It seemed that the musical background of the city has no more to offer to the four friends, tired of looking for the fifth element. But from an ad on internet, came out  from the cylinder Emanuele, the ultimate and fundamental element. The youngest of the band, self-taught, but a real rocker and excited to be part of a group of real musicians.

Many months have passed, and we are already in February of 2010. Begin the reahrsals in the small test room sets up at the home of Andrea, near Turin, and there the game get more serious. In summer the band make two test-gigs, inviting friends and their families, not having clear what is really happening, in terms of commitment, success and above all hard work.

They realize that are good and appreciated by the people, and it’s time to change the look of the band, looking like “real” Oasis, also in the management of the sets on stage, putting vintage lights and objects that recall the best of the Gallagher brothers lives and remember the Brit-Pop culture.

Between November 2010 and December of 2011 they record their first demo, self-produced and mixed by Glauco. He puts all his energy and knowledge in order to let the best sound of the band out. Umberto officially became the group PR, sharing the demo cd among the clubs of Turin.

Since then, the band has not stopped. Gigs around Italy, participation in competitions and television and radio contests, they are present on Internet with an Official Site (this one!), Facebook Site, and a channel on You Tube.

THEIR MUSIC IS GENUINE, ROCK, BEAUTIFUL.
