In 1962  he creates “Bruno De Filippi e il suo complesso”. They play as regulars in several clubs and theatres in Italy and abroad.

At the Sanremo Festival in 1968, Bruno plays banjo for the famous Louis Armstrong. In a reharsals break,  the two guys - sitting alone next to each other - improvise “Do you know what it means”. Thanks to this happening, a special musical feeling builds between them. Later, Bruno will often tell this story very proudly during interviews and concerts.

From the mid ’60s he plays guitar in some famous Italian singers’ recordings and concerts: Mina, Adriano Celentano, Johnny Dorelli, Ornella Vanoni, Enzo Jannacci, Caterina Valente.
