Mattia Ruggeri with his BALI MODEL

Mattia formerly performing as John’s Off the Band, Mattia steps forward to perform under his own name. This talented young artist’s music mixes influences such as Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, and The Specials, but his art is inspired by the music of the 50s and 60s all shaken up with Hawaiian melodies and the spirit of surfing. Mattia’s new album “Sing-along” is released. Try it and you will definitely love it!


“I got my Uluru Uke 2 weeks ago. As I received it I went straight in my music room, plug a mic into my laptop and start recording couple of songs…. I knew that Uluru Ukes were beautifully made, but I was a bit concerned about the sound……. As I played what I recorded it just brought me back to the old days where people would sit on the beach of Waikiki and jam together… Never heard a sound that smooth and still that clear… Just amazing…."
