Originating from Italy, The Cinelli Brothers have been making waves throughout the UK and Europe and a chance meeting with the director of Blues NI, Karl McVeigh has led to the upcoming event.

Karl McVeigh from Blues NI said: “I came across the Cinelli Brothers purely by chance whilst in Amsterdam and was blown away by their outstanding talent, energy and love of Blues. I asked for a meeting with them and invited them to play in Belfast and they accepted there and then.

“Friday is shaping up to be an absolutely epic show. Revellers can expect to hear some of the best blues and soul songs covered in a way which stays true to the original style but with a bolt of energy and showmanship that you will not get from any other band.

We have also confirmed two amazing support acts, Dom Martin and the New Blues Rock band “Delta Fuse” which will give the event an extra edge of supreme talent.

The Empire is such a wonderful live venue and we invite as many people to come along and support them as possible.

The Cinelli Brothers is a project born out of a common passion for the electric Chicago and Texas blues from the 60s and 70s, when Marco (guitarist, singer and composer) and Alessandro (drummer, backing vocalist and arranger) decided to form an explosive team showcasing original repertoire in the style of Chess, Stax and Motown.

After a series of successful shows around Europe (France, UK, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Portugal), the band decided to take things to another level. Babe Please Set Your Alarm was recorded at the Soup Studio in London and the full live and analog recording was released in May 2018 on vinyl and digital format.

The Cinelli Brothers will play The Empire Music Hall this Friday 18th January from 8.30pm. Tickets are priced at £10.50 and can be bought here: and at the door.
