THE CONTRABAND

THE BAND AND THE MUSIC

Contrband's sound is all their own.Front man Alessandro Guerinoni


whose stadium filling vocals anchor the bands sound firmly in the
Rock Domain cannot fail to impress while his lead guitar works,which
he shares with John Kai (Bass Player).
The pair entwine lead and bass sections creating an unique mood for
each and every song they play.John's driving bass patterns and
(drummer) tommy's technical wizardly create an ambitious yet
concrete platform from where the guitarist can really express himself.
It is Contraband's diversity and pure musical dynamics which
set them apart from vast majority of Rock bands and their huge sound
is more than capable of filling stadiums anywhere.
The band was formed in late 2006 when three friends of
different ethnics united their interests in music.After months of
deliberation the band finally decided on the name 'Contraband'.
Contraband comes from the latin word 'Contro'
which means against.
