Barrelhouse Ballroom, Totnes
WE ARE THE BAND
Tim doesn't speak much English, but from what little Malavita can work out, he is a fourth generation latin-funk bassist from South Devon.
Ian works hard at his craft, manufacturing his own saxaphone from a single, elegant ash sapling and several hundred old Tunnocks wrappers. When played, this unique device often stimulates involuntary latin spasms.
Naomi is a fully qualified horn operator, and can deliver up to 14 Terrawatts of horn power on demand, in a safe and controlled manner. Rest assured, your audio needs are Naomi's number 1 priority.
Davide has anger management issues, so part of his treatment is to hit things in a controlled manner. Malavita get funding from the NHS to provide a safe environment for Davide's care.
Al has extensive rock and jazz drumming experience having played with the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis and Shania Twain. Malavita managed to hire Al by offering guaranteed Tunnocks at every gig.
Tom was identified early as a natural on guitar. After studying at some of the finest music colleges in the country he was trained by the Edge, before founding Malavita in 2006. He is. however, a social recluse.
