Romeo Velluto is a jazz musician, composer and session guitar player contaminated by different musical heritage. He studied at the Music Conservatoire of Milan, and previously at Cemm (European Centre of modern music). He spent the last 5 summers travelling and busking all over Europe, building his repertory with bossa-nova, blues, swing and mediterranean music. Playing alone in the streets, he developed a technique which allows to play bass line and harmony in the same time, record it live and play on it, it’s like having an instrumental duo. After releasing his first CD of originals (a mix of cool jazz and mediterranenan influences), he moved to London; thanks to his huge experience of functions and versatility, he's been rapidly involved in many bands and duos with singers. He's now at work for his second album. During his career, he had the opportunity to play in famous jazz clubs like the Blue Note of Milan and Ronnie Scott in London, plus several festivals like Tuscia Jazz, Umbria Jazz, MiTo Festival, Jazz Festival of Italian Conservatories ;he also played with Cosimo Keita Cadore (Shakira, Zucchero, Lionel Richie) Vittorio Bianco (Albano, Tullio De Piscopo, Gino Paoli, Rita Pavone) The Duke Street Big Band, Francesco Piras (Vallanzaska)Gioel Severini (International House of funk).

Romeo played at a two hour reception section of our wedding. He arrived on time (despite complications of a rail strike) and played beautifully at our event. We received many compliments on his playing.

Romeo created the right ambiance at my 40th birthday and all my guests really enjoyed having such a wonderful musician entertain us during cocktails. Romeo always communicated in a timely manner and responded to all queries as and when they arose. He also texted me on the day to update me on his arrival time. Look forward to the next opportunity i have to book Romeo and I am sure he will be just as great at your event too! Thanks Romeo for a lovely afternoon of music!
