The current AfterHours line-up is Manuel Agnelli, lead vocals, Giorgio Prette, drums, Giorgio Ciccarelli, guitar and keyboards, Roberto Dell’Era, bass, Rodrigo D’Erasmo, violin, and Xabier Iriondo on guitar.
Manuel Agnelli has been the lead singer since AfterHours formed in 1986. Drummer Giorgio Prette has been with the band for a good few years too.
AfterHours has been to the States a couple of times and the band’s music is listened to in Canada, Japan and Europe.

Afterhours + Majakovich with the track – Meet some freaks on Route 66.

AfterHours was formed in Milan in the mid-80s but are still going strong even if the line-up has changed quite a bit. The band has released no less than 12 albums and doing sell-out tours in Italy and elsewhere.
