Vintage Trouble

Vintage Trouble is a sensational, soulful four-man band whose very essence screams out loud of the late 1950's to 1960's. Turned on by and tuned into the evolutionary period in music and life when there was a razor thin line between Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll, the band reconnects us all to one universal vibration. Their modern day classics transport the mind, spirit and body back to a sweaty, swinging, heart-thumping speakeasy. Their live shows feel like a sweet southern down-home revival mixed with a gritty, downtown edge. Inspirationally, Otis Redding, Chuck Berry and Ike and Tina Turner can all be felt in woven clothe that tailor-suit the band like honey to the bee. When the buzz tells you they're near, get to them...and be prepared to be moved.

Desi's career as a professional singer started in the London's musicals: he has been in the original west end cast of Mel Brooks' The Producers (starring "Nathan Lane" and "Lee Evan") and the leading man "Tyrone Jackson" in Fame, the musical at the Shaftesbury Theatre. His multi-faceted talent also brought him to work as a backing vocalist for such artists as Gloria Estefan, Rachel Stevens, Alexandra Burke and Sir Elton John.

In 2008 he met the guitarist and co-writer Mose Tronci, and started shaping his own material. Desi recorded the debut album Back To Me under the production of Kevin Porée at Berry Street Studios in 2009.

Desi has been finalist at the National Grand Final of Live&Unsigned 2009, the UK music competition with over 30,000 participants, and is currently dividing his activities in promoting his debut album and in performing in the London music scene.
