on the road – thank you for the show David Bowie

It’s hard to express all the blues. It is a sad day for art and music. He was the one that never failed and one of the few that had the courage to kill himself as artist to born again pure as a swan.  You were and will always be a massive inspiration for all the generations.  David Bowie thank you for the show.

Thank’s for the soul Natalie Cole

This is one of my favourite soul tracks of all the time. I selected this track a thousand times and more and I will keep on playing it. Because I can stop dancing, I can’t stop to sing this song. Her voice was a gift.  Rest in peace Natalie and say hello to your dad from all of us…

my xmas lamare’s special playlist

I think that there is nothing to say about Christmas…we all know what this day is and its meaning and it’s never too late or obvious to say that we all should love more. Happy Xmas to everyone…and enjoy the playlist.

Non credo ci sia niente d adire sul Natale…sappiamo tutti cosa è questo giorno e il suo significato e non è mai troppo tardi o scontato dire che dovremmo amare di più. Buon Natale a tutti…e buon ascolto.

Estati Maliziose reprise…dedicated to Laura Antonelli

It was one year ago, when I released this track inspired by all the erotic summer movies from the ’70s and the ’80s. The one that is in the title of the song was “Malizia” (1974) with the great Laura Antonelli who passed away today 22nd June 2015. Rest in peace Laura and thank’s for the malice.

on the road – international surfing day 2015

Today is the International Surfing Day. Every surfer in the world is happy to share a board, a smile and some words about surfing with everyone wants to try to surf on the beach. Today there are no waves at my place, the sea is flatter than flat. There will be waves tomorrow, maybe. The spirit, the good vibrations, the aim to share something beautiful with the rest of the world, even if some spot must remain secrets, all these things are the heart of surfing. I thank mother nature for all the good and bad waves, for all these gifts. Have a good surfing day.

Torna per la decima stagione il retro party più grande della costa salentina.

Come ogni anno arrivano numerose email di vacanzieri che si informano se anche quest’anno potranno sudarsi i polpacci con le selezioni di Tobia Lamare. La risposta è SI, e la data di inizio è il 27 giugno (2015) alla location storica, il lido Buena Ventura a Torre Specchia Ruggeri (LE).

on the road – “NORTHERN SOUL” a review and a summer (2015) full of soul

Screen-Shot-2014-10-15-at-15-17-59 (1)

Josha Whitehouse as Matt in the movie

NORTHERN SOUL is a movie written and directed by the fantastic photographer Elaine Constantine and released during the last year (2014). And you need to watch it …and dance it!
 NORTHERN SOUL è un film scritto e diretto dalla brava fotografa Elaine Constanine e uscito durante il 2014. Lo dovete guardare e..ballare.
VERSIONE IN ITALIANO IN BASSO

The fact that I’m trying to dance again explains you a lot about this movie. This is the effect. It’s not a masterpiece, but it makes you dance. Because music, dance, colors, photography, clothes, retro memorabilia, including cheap wallpapers, are perfect. I would have loved more about dance and less about drugs, but amphetamines were truly a big deal in that scene. Probably it was a big deal everywhere in the 70s.

Sunday 17 May is the International Day Against Homopobia, and in my town some friends (http://associazionelea.org/) took care to organize the #RainbowDay. I told a lot about my town. I love my town even if it is not an easy place for someone. It wasn’t for me as an aspiring young rocker in the ‘90s. It was not for my friends that want to dress different clothes. It was not easy for my gay friends. I think that it was not easy either for the people who didn’t like us.
I think that even in Stockholm a 20something boy or girl can have some problem with the coming out; but probably going out in the street and seeing men with a big moustache dressed as woman walking and talking naturally with a friend helps a lot in some way. Society can help a lot.

Versione italiana in basso

Well, it happened that while I was walking my road through the 54songs weeks I met some amazing musicians. I already told you this story, but what I didn’t tell you is that I met some others…musician. The new band didn’t stop with a new drummer and bass player but have grown up with a brass section: a trumpet (Alessandro Dell’Anna) and a saxophone (Fulvio Palese). And everything changed….
