Episode 59 – Mark Reilly

Derek and Kieran are joined by singer and songwriter, Mark Reilly from the band “Matt Bianco”

Matt Bianco is a UK group formed in 1982 by Mark Reilly (vocals),Danny White (keyboards) and the late Kito Poncioni (bass) , all originally members of the band Blue Rondo A La Turk. For their first album “Whose Side Are You On ?” they hired unknown polish vocalist Basia Trzetrzelewska. Her vocal arrangements gave the album a jazzy dimension that Reilly and White couldn’t anticipate and hits like “Get Out of Your Lazy Bed” and “Half a Minute” turned Matt Bianco into one of the biggest acts of the 1980’s.

Matt will be on the road with the band in 2021 and have released the new album, “High Anxiety”.
