SHUFFLE OR GROOVY

CHOCOBO BAND DEBUT ALBUM IS OUT NOW

Shuffle or Groovy is the band's first record. It includes the most famous masterpieces from Final Fantasy soundtracks such as "Those Who Fight Further", "Cosmo Canyon" and many others rearranged in a unique way.

An original acoustic arrangement of 'The Skies Above' inspired by The Black Mages reinterpretation of 'To Zanarkand', one amongst the most beloved themes from Final Fantasy X and the entire saga. It's a tribute to the original song by Nobuo Uematsu to whom we all wanted to give this video on the occasion of his birthday. Hope you enjoy!

The idea of a Final Fantasy tribute was born in 2007 when the musicians and Final Fantasy lovers Mike Pelillo (guitarist and singer), Gabriele Lei (bass player) and Riccardo Barbieri (one of the keyboard players) went to Nobuo Uematsu's orchestral concert, a unique event in Italy. Almost as if it were a joke, these guys wondered about forming a tribute band to the composer's songs.
Three years later, that dream came true: the line-up became the same as "The Black Mages"' one with the drummer Alessandro Lugari, the other keyboard player Giacomo Ferrari and the other guitarist Salvatore Zappalà. The repertoire is made up of covers and interpretations of songs by "The Black Mages", but also of other famous Uematsu's compositions bound to the Final Fantasy saga. "Chocobo Band" decides then to include another member: the opera singer Beatrice Bini. Our show covers 2 hours, from the most famous melodies of the bestselling chapters of the saga to some songs devoted to real experts. We vary between instrumental and sung (by male and/or female voice) pieces. The feedback of our fans revealed to be excellent, both live and on the web.
