The River Boys

The group "The River Boys" was founded the 21st of January 2000 by 26 parents of young musicians of Mezzolombardo (Trentino, Italy) and nearby villages with the purpose to diffuse musical culture in town, to

increase knowledge about music and to share love for music to all the people coming in contact with it.
The association wants to be a place where young musicians meet and have fun together, leading to new friendships but also to a greater culture that is not taught in school.
"The River Boys" were born to play a modern repertoire, suitable to all players, and easily enjoyable and understandable from every kind of public, no matter their age.
Currently the group is composed by around 30 players (wind instruments, keyboards, electric bass and drums), the most of which between 15 and 35 years old.
