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...

With Rinaldi Sings guitarist Chris Borsberry out of the country for several months, the recent gigs at the International Pop Overthrow Festival in Liverpool saw the band’s trumpet player Tim Pannell switch to lead guitar. “Tim sometimes plays rhythm guitar on songs when he’s not playing trumpet, but in Liverpool he did a really good job of keeping Chris Borsberry’s seat warm,” said Steve Rinaldi. “He also played guitar on our recent BBC Radio Suffolk session when Chris wasn’t available.”
At the first of the two shows in Liverpool, Tim’s trumpet parts were covered by the addition of soprano sax player Scott Brooker, playing alongside Andy Brush on tenor sax (Scott was making his second appearance with the band as he had previously stood in when Andy Brush was out of the country with The Affair). For the headlining show at The Cavern later the same evening, Gavin Bowyer joined the band on trumpet, making this the first Rinaldi Sings performance to boast a four-piece brass section.
In the past drummer Richard Hunter has appeared live with the band on percussion, leaving only bassist Simon Lloyd and sax player Andy Brush yet to play more than one instrument for Rinaldi Sings.
