"The Hitchhiker:Venezuelan birth-American reborn crooner, now located in the deep south; Baton Rouge Louisiana. Has a whole lot to lay on the table.

A traveler; a vagabond?All these terms describe a hitchhiker. Perhaps musician and songwriter, Luis Mariani, is none of them, but he might be all three". --- Dig Magazine, Baton Rouge, LA.

Mariani and his boys are ready and willing to take chances in order to restore the fundamental essence of music that has been overlooked, to them; for the past 2 decades.

"America needs what we got. Rock N Roll"

January, winter of 2013 marks the overdue beggining of Mariani and the boys's studio time; as they will go back in the studio, to hammer down the sounds of "Get Into It"; Their sophmore EP and follow up to their debut EP "King of The Highway."

The Band:  A Group of good ole south Louisiana music scene veteran boys, Josiah Menard(Bass,Backing Vocals) and a couple of new faces; Casey Wells and Jude Dupont, both on guitars and backing vocals, plus Luis Mariani as Lead vocalist and main songwriter.

Mariani is a seasoned musician who has served as guitarist in the Mclin led themed band "Tequila Party" and also as touring guitarist for the nationally known band "Maylene and the Sons of Disaster". As well, Menard is also the bass player for the big  BR local act "Meriwether", but has been working with Mariani since way before the inception of The Hitchhiker as a full band.

The guys are ready to show the scene what they have in their holsters with the release of "Get Into It."  So get ready, come out, listen, and take cover cause the boys are back in town to show you a taste of what this world has been needing back: Rock N' Roll.
