Sat. July 13, 2019: Metalliferous Hills Jug Band live @ Bar Polo, Punta Ala, Tuscany

After their first Spring event in Punta Ala, Tuscany, on April 28, the Metalliferous Hills Jug Band (Jug Band dalle Colline Metallifere or JBCM) will be back in the famous location for a Summer gig.

The JBCM in Ludwigsburg, Germany, June 1, 2019

The collective has recently returned from a kaleidoscopic tour in Germany and Politecnico di Milano and is in a very active phase, planning new geomusical events and mixing them with international connections, bridging Southern Tuscany, The Netherlands, and Hungary (as an example).

Come and visit us between 7PM and 11PM at Bar Polo, via Dogana, Punta Ala on Saturday, July 13, 2019. The live part of the performance will be partly before dinner, and partly after dinner, with our combination of rock-blues, sensors, maps, and other items related to our territory.

On this round we will host Alessio Ricci on electric guitars, often jamming together with us (especially in his Amish from Jack White project with Dario).

Looking forward to see you, with a background of On the road again, and mezzogiorno di grano!

The event is sponsored by Associazione Comunità di Punta Ala (please see their July 2019 calendar for more events by the association)

Renzo Rosso with the Metalliferous Hills Jug Band

Now that we recovered the “jet lag” following our mission to Germany, we can start to tidy up the documentation that we collected during our trip.

Here is a cameo by Renzo Rosso, Hydraulic and Maritime Constructions and Hydrology professor at Politecnico di Milano (also MS and PhD tutor for Jack o’Malley), who came to visit the JBCM for a moment of artistic exchange. On one side Renzo Rosso and his CD “Children of a Lesser River“, on the other side the inter-generational, international, geomusical collective. This was on May 30, 2019, around 5.30PM.

As a musical enticement, for a hydrology master we proposed our cover of “When the Levee Breaks” by Led Zeppelin. Simone and Renzo also had some debate on electric guitars. Some of you may also note a correlation between characters with and without hat.
