Bridging the divide between Soul, Funk, Garage, Punk and Rock & Roll may seem like a tall order on paper – but as audiences across Europe attest, MAIORANO do it with gusto.

With their sound so difficult to define, and a name initially tricky to pronounce (it’s “My-Oh-Ra-No“, in case you were wondering), it’s a welcome relief that the music is so easy to love. This is especially true of their live performance, as charismatic frontman Alex commands the stage with a missionary zeal whilst the band delivers tight rhythms, soulful grooves and soaring brass backing.
