A long lone night walk gathered the lyrics of "Pocket Full Of Nothin'",the first step to a new musical and life adventure to be lived and believed by Family Style: A powerful Blues concept album matching every mood...
Together with younger brother FRANCO LIMIDO (Recorded with Robert Palmer) on vocals and harmonica, cousin DAVIDE BIANCHI on bass and the fascinating STEFANIA "Pretty Baby" AVENALI on drums, Family Style launched themselves to the world's blues circuit, and have never looked back, they are simply the best!
Family Style have made many friends during their European tours in recent years. They are great guys, of course, but the secret of their success is phenomenal live playing.
Their gigs are technical master classes and, just as importantly, joyous celebrations of a music they so clearly love the natural blues (Nottingham Post).
Whether performing distinctive and thoughtfully original material or sensitively interpreting the work of others, they reach out to their audiences who never fail to return the embrace by the end of the evening. Italian Blues deluxe!!
The band is currently on the road celebrating their 10th anniversary around Europe (and not only...) with successful concerts in Belgium, Holland, Poland, Great Britain, Ireland, Malta, Hungary, France, Italy, Switzerland and more to come....
"These guys sound as if they've lived every teardrop and heartbreak. Of special note is Franco. His harp is the natural extension of his vocals, which have pure passion hanging on every word. And what about Marco's guitar----spine tingling! Simply Great."
ROCK AND BLUES NEWS - USA
"....one of Europe's top blues bands.
The entire band plays with well defined dynamics and the soloists handling their choruses effectively. Franco Limido blows great harp and Marco's guitar hits the mark."
BLUES REVUE - USA MARCH 2000
"A New Star Is Born! WE ARE AMAZED. This is great music. With a load of Soul and Feeling. Family Style, from Italy plays one beautiful kind of blues music. ...I can't sit still listening ....! ....Family Style from Italy is the second band in the New Millennium that I really get wild about. We've seen loads of bands, good bands, but every once in awhile there is one that is better than all the rest. THIS IS ONE OF THEM. Go see them when they are around."
