Les Babettes first met Joe Bastianich (entrepreneur and tv judge for Materchef USA and Italy) in 2014 while singing on the Tv program “On the road” (Sky Arte). The episode Les Babettes are featured in focuses on their native region Friuli Venezia Giulia’s culinary and musical traditions. This was the beginning of a friendship and an ongoing musical collaboration between the trio and Joe. Joining him in his musical projects “The Mixtape” and “Joe Bastianich and friends” together with his friends Mike Seay and Roberto Esposito, they have performed at festivals such as Umbria Jazz and Bastianich Music Festival, on the Italian radio stations Radio 105 and Radio Deejay, as well as in many venues all over Italy (Salumeria della musica in Milan, Diavolo rosso in Asti, Lido Azzurro in Santa Maria di Leuca). Together with him they’ve recorded “Blue Christmas”, included in Virgin Radio’s compilation “Xmas in Rock”.
