The Occasionals are recent winners of the 33rd Sanremo Rock Festival and overall winners of the ‘trend’ category and the Assomusica prize for the best live performance.. The band is based in Siena and was formed ‘off site’ in 2011 by a group of university students. Seven young, talented musicians with a fresh energetic project to combine Italian singer-songwriters with genres ranging from folk rock to ska and reggae.

In the live performance all the characteristics of the band emerge. The lyrics are never dull or banal, the spirit is easy going and ironic and has the capacity to lead the audience between the choral refrains, the instrumental riffs and the unbridled solos of the trumpet and violin.
