Accompanied for the occasion by the splendid and poetic guitar of Danilo Zanchi, and by the eclectic double bass player Steve Cantarano.

The passion for vintage style strongly influenced by roots music American in the 1950s and European contamination in the mid-1960s, gave birth to what many have already called one of the most valid bands of the Tuscan landscape. The great strength of the band lies in the natural union of the musical styles from which the two main performers come, and so on rockabilly, surf and swing intersect with jump blues, soul and "Black" rock'n'roll, creating an irresistible cocktail with a very high charge Energy. Aesthetics also strongly recall the atmosphere of Chicago of 1956 thanks to the attention to detail placed by the four musicians who they combine their personal touch with the typical style of that period.
After 3 years of touring all over Tuscany and part of Italy the band produces the
his first album "Hoodoo Souls" and he participates, even before the release of
the latter, at numerous festivals and events of national importance and international. During the preview period of the new album I The Partners In Crime participate as an opening act in the tour of the most important band on the scene Garage / Rock'n’Roll worldwide: "THE SONICS". Rob Lind, leader and founding member of the band since 1960 says about them: "... these guys have the same grit and energy we had at the beginning of our career with the Sonics and they are also excellent musicians ... ", defining The Partners in Crime" the best band of support he had on this long European tour”. The duo version allows the two musicians to dig deep into the research of the roots of black music.

Marco Ricciardi and Juan Carlos Albelo Zamora cross some cardinal genres of “sur” music and “Latin” cultures: a round trip from Latin America to Italy (with pieces of samba, bossa, tango, boleros, Argentine zamba , etc.) and with some pearls of the Neapolitan and Roman folk and / or songwriting tradition.
