MARCOZZI CONTEMPORARY THEATER
The collaboration between Luis and Daniela Marcozzi was born in occasion of two artist residencies Ortopolis (Pesaro, 2015) and Ex-Fornace (S. Andrea di Conza, 2017). Since then, Luis began composing and editing music for theater sometimes taking part at body-voice workshops, other times getting involved on stage along with Daniela as in Watermouth and Aldebaran, presented in Berlin between 2016 and 2017 (Ada studio, TheaterHaus Mitte, Expedition Metropolis, Noize Fabrik).
Their collaboration renewed with the performance Diagonal Vertigo (2019), last chapter of Trilogy of Power, at Performing Arts Festival Berlin 2019; for it, Luis has written all the music.

Caboose is a blues/rock project founded by composer and guitarist Luis DeCicco
The first songs are conceived and played in Berlin's underground, where the train comings and goings influence both the style and the name of the band: Caboose, as the last freight train's coach.
Coming back to Italy, Luis meets Carlo Corso, a promising jazz student at the local music school in Benevento whose interest in indian and african music brings new blood to the original artistic core, closest to country-hill style.
Thanks to a fluent touring, they develope an unique mèlange of folk, psychedelic, african music, spoken word, often including other art forms like physical theater and slam poetry.
The first EP Caboose was recorded in October 2018 and printed in 400 copies sold out, followed by more than 50 concerts between France, Italy and Germany.
During the tour they have opened for Watermelon Slim, Eric Bibb, Robert Kimbrough.
In January 2019, thanks to the collaboration with Mojo Station, a radio broadcast based in Rome, they gain the semifinals at the IBC in Memphis, the worldwide contest for blues acts.
Later, their tour stopped in the most important venues of the midwest like Handy's Blues Hall (Memphis), Bluesberry Cafè (Clarksdale), D.B.A. (New Orleans).
In February 2019 they have launched the new CD "Hinterland Blues" playing two release parties in Rome (Monk club) and Berlin (ACUD).
