Rinaldi Sings — News and Live Dates
Upcoming Live DatesFriday December 10, 2010
Rinaldi Sings + Kelly's Heels,
Welwyn Garden City,
Rinaldi Sings is the name assumed by singer/songwriter Steve Rinaldi, who was famously described by the NME as a "cocksure 20th Century Scott Walker". He plays a stylish brand of pop that acknowledges a deep debt to the bubblegum northern soul of the late Sixties.
The second Rinaldi Sings album is available NOW from this site...

Thu. Mar 4 2004SUCCESS AT THE DUBLIN CASTLE
Last night Rinaldi Sings made a successful debut London appearance at the Dublin Castle in Camden - despite the fact that the evening was very nearly scuppered by a defective bass guitar. After taking to the stage to a tremendous response from a crowd numbering well over 100 punters, the band were forced to delay the start of the set by 15 minutes while making last minute repairs to Tim Charlton’s bass guitar. Battling against a poor sound, the band got fully into their stride by about the third number and by the end of the set they had won the crowd over. Steve Rinaldi’s performance was at its most self-assured and the band were joined onstage for the first time by backing vocalist Rowen Fenner, an occasional member of the Rinaldi Sings ensemble.
Steve was particularly please to see among the crowd some of the musicians and producers that he’s worked with over the years, including Paul Bultitude, Edward Ball, Anthony Meynell, Ian Shaw and Matthew Wiles. “Despite the nightmare opening to the set I really enjoyed the gig,” said Steve Rinaldi. “It was also nice to see a few faces in the crowd that I recognised from last week’s gig in Chelmsford. We must be doing something right if people are coming back for more.”
Anyone attending tonight’s show in Bury St Edmunds should be aware that Tim will be playing his other bass guitar!
