Bandabardò was formed on March 8th 1993. The leader and singer of the band, Enrico "Erriquez" Greppi met Alessandro "Finaz" Finazzo who, at that time, played the electric guitar. Greppi then convinced him to start playing the acoustic guitar. The idea was that the songs had to be simple, full of vitality, like when you are among your friends around a bonfire ("falò" in italian, is a massive part of Italian folklore culture). The other members of the band are Andrea "Orla" Orlandini (electric guitar), Marco "Donbachi" Bachi (bass), Alessandro "Nuto" Nutini (drums) and Ramon (drums).
