More informations

“Opus Band” offers an unusual brotherhood of monks playing moving like acrobats balancing on an imaginary tightrope between the sacred and the profane, between the rock and the Gregorian chants, between the Middle Ages and elettrofunk. With great ability to interpret the musicians transform the high perfection of the Toccata in D minor by Bach polluting it with the recklessness of James Brown. A Gregorian chant or a Renaissance dance, “In Taverna when sumus,” suddenly, with ease and great energy, they become mystical and transcendental rock with citations of Led Zeppelin. “Opus Band” is a clever blend of music and street theater, unsettling and fun, involve the public in this short “trip saxofonico on the way to heaven.”

The founder and the ledear of BadaBimBumBand is Sandro Tani.
Sandro started his musical studies at 10 years old. He started studing the clarinet, later the saxophone; in the 1992 he graduated from the Conservatorio of Florence in saxophone. From the beginning, his musical interests range over from classic music to jazz and folk repertoire. Nel 1994 he won the audition at Teatro della Scala di Milano. He played with the “The Saexophones” at XVII° Cantiere d’Arte of Montepulciano, at X° International Congress of Saxophone. He won many competitions like I° Prize “Trofeo Kawai”, I° Prize “Astor Piazzolla” of Castelfidardo. He played in different contests as Biennale of Venezia, Accademia Chigiana, the Orchestra of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino and the ORT-Orchestra of Toscana. He collaborated with important italian musical directors as Luciano Berio, Vinko Globokar, Georges Pretre, Bruno Bartoletti. Actually he teachs the saxophone at the Musical Lyceum of Lucca.
