Band's biography


RattleRattle were born in Sestri Levante (GE) ITALY, the name of the band comes from the onomatopoeical word used in the comics to imitate with the sound the meaning of the thing, outlining in a eloquent way the selection of the musical genre: hard rock rattling, crackling guitars and many watts deployed.

At the beginning the band played many covers of the most important American and English Bands, and after that evolved composing its own songs.

From 2003, after several changes of formation (from the original band remains one of the founding members: Luigi Botticella on bass), RattleRattle propose them self to the public, almost exclusively as Tribute Band to Van Halen (period 1978 - 1984 approx) and David Lee Roth for the following period as a soloist.

From 2008, during their gigs, the band seriously performed  for its public some cover songs out of Deep Purple and Dream Theater, and after a while they understood which other tribute could be proposed together with the one dedicated to Van Halen ...on the 23rd of december the debut at Muddy Waters in Calvari of the show called "Deep Rattle ...Rattle in Japan", an entire tribute dedicated to the Live that in 1972 has consecrated Deep Purple.

Currently, the band is composed by the following musicians:

Angelo Minoli - voice and guitar

Luigi Botticella - bass

Andrea Cordě - guitar

Emanuele Rivara – drums

Nicola Rossi - keyboards
