About Luigi

With over 20 years of stage experience as singer-guitarist, Luigi Cirillo proposes an entertainment show that is the sum of his musicianship
Singing guitarist
Public liability insurance of £1 million

Luigi Cirillo has been dedicated to music studies since an early age. An eclectic route, through saxophone and guitar, has led him to singing, where he has found his natural expressive dimension. He improved his vocalism under the guidance of M. Mario Castiglia as a soloist and chorister. He worked as a soloist with the Orchestra Fantasia Napoletana, touring throughout Italy. He performed in Poland and Spain as a chorister with the Renaissance ensemble Principe San Severino, participating in international art music festivals (colto/extracolto). Among many, he played with Linley Hamilton, Espedito De Marino, Antonio Florio. His continuous training allows him to exhibit an extreme vocal ductility, from throat singing to Renaissance and Jazz.

We hired Luigi for our wedding. He was absolutely amazing. I wish I could give him more stars. I was quite particular with my ask of him. I sent him YouTube videos of the exact songs and playing style I wanted for my wedding and he delivered it perfectly, exactly how I envisioned. I knew I had picked the right person as he was a clear communicator over email and asked me questions when he wasn’t clear on something. Our guests enjoyed the environment he set both during the ceremony and cocktail hour post ceremony. I would not hesitate to hire him again in the future. Luigi, I cannot say thank you enough. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you! You are truly magnificent!
