As J.D.Lovers they had recorded an album produced by Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) with special guests such as Lee Allen (Fats Domino and Little Richard sax player), David Hidalgo (Los Lobos), Candie Kane and Dave Alvin (The Blasters).
In the 1990, Cesare and Andrea with Max Pitardi on bass, started touring in Italy as The Dirty Hands, and then in 1992 a three months tour in USA with Andy J. Forest, a California harmonica player. They performed in New Orleans, Austin, Tucson, Pasadena and Los Angeles. In 1993 was the time of an European tour.
Back from the USA they backed up the well-known New Orleans harmonica player J.Monque D. in his first and second Italian tour. (1992-1993).
After these experiences they engaged Egidio Ingala as harmonica player and recorded their first work “Dirty Hands”. With the same line-up they recorded 2 more albums: “XXX Hot Chili!!” (distributed in Europe by Cross Cut records) and “Four Cool Cats”. The two albums had a very good public and critical success.
In February 2014 they decided to reassemble the Band with Cosimo dell’Orto (Dirty hands Bass player from the 1996) as The Dirtyhands, performing again in many clubs as trio and sometimes as quartet with Mariano “Lenny” Marini (Snake Doctors) on guitar.
In the 2017 Andrea and Cesare performed some gigs as power Duo, with a new simplified sound, creating a power garage, Texas and Mississippi blues style. This Sound style, with Cosimo
on Bass and baritone Guitar, became the new sound of the band.
In July 2018 they they went back to the recording studio for a new Dirtyhands release:
The Dirtyhands Bull’s Eye for the Bloos Records.
