The Northeastern Performer Magazine describes Alexis' music as "… fills the audience's ears with lyrics of love, flirting, and a little heartbreak. His song "High Hopes" had all the women in the room sneaking up to the dance floor of Club Pure in The Roxy. As Alexis left the stage, the room had a good buzz starting.
Hailing originally from Connecticut, Alexis Babini, at age 16, formed his locally acclaimed band "Gabriel's Groove" and fronted the 2004 release of their full-length album "Up to a Better Place". That same year, he made his way to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music, where he majored in Songwriting. There, he began to pursue his solo career full-time, and assembled a powerful band to back him at his shows, endearingly christened Alexis Babini and Friends
