ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There will be music since there are stories to tell...

Rome based Mardi Gras is a rock act with a difference. Named after Creedence Clearwater Revival's last studio album, the band's musical journey is one made up of protest songs, poetry, prayers set to music, and a whole lot more. "Tried" and "Shoes" are the brand new singles out in 2018, groovy soul oriented tracks, a fresh breath with the new line up. Their third album Playground (2015), is a record where ballads, rock, funky and acoustic pieces of music are the playground for the band with all their influences. Mundy, one of the greatest Irish songwriters, is guesting on the album. The album was mastered at Abbey Road Studios in London by Simon Gibson. As regular visitors in Ireland, the band has forged long standing connections with some of the best Irish musicians, playing as the support act for The Frames, Glen Hansard and sharing the stage with artists such as Mundy, Siobhan O' Brien, TKO, Micah P Hinson, Noah and the Whale, Billy Bragg, Jack Savoretti and the best Italian independent acts to name a few. Liam O'Maonlai from the Hothouse Flowers features on their album "Among the streams" where a W.B.Yeats's poem is put into music. Two of Mardi Gras songs, "The wait" and "Scarecrow in the snow" were listed on Neil Young's website "Songs of the Times" where protests songs all over the world are chosen and listed by Neil Young in person. The band has also enjoyed great success, attracting attention internationally on European and US based radio stations and becoming one of the most popular Italian acts with a constantly growing fanbase. Mardi Gras albums Drops made (2006, Goodfellas) and Among the Streams (2011) were a very welcome offering from a band that is a real treat for the ears. Their singles "Feel Alright" and "Your constellation" did chart in Italy, and "Alys" is a soundtrack for the eponymous Italian Sci-Fi short movie. In August 2013 Mardi Gras played with the best Italian acts at the Sziget Festival in Budapest.
