The Rattle Rattle were born in Sestri Levante (GE) (the name of the
band is born form the onomatopoeical word used in the comics to imitate
with the sound the significate of the thing, outlining in a eloquent
way the selection of the musical genre: hard rock rattling, rustling
of guitars and lots of watts used).
Initially the band dedicates to the rappresentation of many covers
from Historycal american and english bands, and after that evolved composing
it's own songs. After a crisis period and different changes of members
(from the original band we have only two founder members: Luigi Botticella
bass and Andrea Costanzo drums), Rattle Rattle proposed to the public
not only with their songs, but also as cover band and tribute band to
Van Halen and Deep Purple, thanks to the voice of Angelo Minoli and
to Andrea Cordi's guitar.
Actually, the band is composed from the following five
musicians coming from different experiences:
Angelo Minoli - voice and guitar
Luigi Botticella - bass
Andrea Cordi - guitar
Andrea Costanzo - drums
Marco Mezzetta - keyboards
The band has obtained yet flattering appreciations from specialized
critics and from the public, from Alps to Sicily (literally), as well
