A Swiss band performing Italian Rock. The band was founded in Zurich at the beginning of 2007 by Antonio Guida (lead singer and composer) and Guido Egger (guitar player). Cambio’s initial musical project was based on a few songs that Antonio composed to entertain friends with the guitar. After several auditions Lorenzo Weibel was chosen at the drums, Sal Nurrito to play bass guitar, and Nicola Curcio for a second electric guitar. Cambio started performing live in June 2007, hitting several stages in the Switzerland and Germany, with a good response from the audience. This positive feedback convinced the band to self-produce their first album, published on December 1st, 2007. At the beginning of 2008 Sal and Nicola decide to leave the band, and they are replaced by Michele Cumar at the bass and Luca Valentino playing guitar and keyboards.
The new formation became a united group of friends sharing a common passion for music. Euro 2008 football championships held Austria and Switzerland motivated the band to compose Gioco di Testa, a song dedicated to the Italian national team. The initiative received a good response from Swiss and German mass media. Tages-Anzeiger (http://www.tagesanzeiger.ch/dyn/news/zuerich/859801.html) and Südkurier (http://www.suedkurier.de/region/blitzmeldungen/hochrhein/waldshuttiengen/art3822,3240176) published articles about Cambio. At the same time DRS3 (one of the most popular Swiss radios: http://www.drs.ch/www/de/drs/10723.oid153005.html) aired Gioco di Testa nationwide, and the song is on the top chart of the swiss music portal mx3 (http://mx3.ch/artist/cambio). Radio Italy, american based online broadcaster, dedicates attention to Cambio by playing the song several times a day during Euro 2008, thrilling the band with a great emotion. The interest expressed by the media helped Cambio to be contacted by the city of Zurich to perform live in the fanzone of Euro 2008 for the delight of hundreds of fans. ______________________________________________ 3.
