Leo Boni: Italian-american singer/guitarist, he was prizewinning with the “Weepin’ Willie All Star” as best Boston blues band , after many years of activity in the north west of the USA.
Eclectic and adaptable,his features are the blues education from the USA experience, the roots into the tradion of Tuscany and the love for the gypsy manouche of Alsazia: these factors along with his warm and raspy voice create an unique sound.
During past years he found time and space to study and improve his technique, with his acoustic guitar and with the electric one thus making him really unmatched in front of fascinated supporters, friends and fans.
