Don. Fucking. Broco.

How many concerts have you been to where the opener has the crowd chanting for an encore after? Where the band can get the entire crowd jumping up and down screaming their lyrics? If you go see Don Broco, this is exactly what you will get. 

I’ve been to countless concerts in my life time and I have never seen an energy like I saw with Don Broco. The House of Blues stage is no joke, it’s big. Don Broco made this stage seem small. Front man Rob Damiani is a force on the stage, he could make your grandma jump around The House Of Blues.

What’s better then one extremely talented singer in a band? Two. Rob Damiani and Matt Donnelly. Rob Damiani brings a huge vocal range to the table. He is able to really put passion into his vocals, that make you feel the emotion behind the song. Matt Donnelly provides a whole level to the songs that I can’t even explain, all while being a tight and energetic drummer. 

A lot of people don’t realize how much a bass line brings to a song. If you are one of those people, go watch Tom Doyle play. His rock jazzy bass lines elevate these songs to a unknown level.

 Don Broco has a sound that has never been heard before in the absolute best way possible. All in all, they are a hard rock band with an alternative vibe.  

Something that’s gotten lost in music the last few years has been heavy guitars and Don Broco really brings that to the table. Si Delaney is an extremely talented guitarist, who can play complicated riffs while also being a mad man on stage.

 Don Broco only played seven songs but those seven songs gained a few hundred new fans. They showed their energy with songs like “Everybody”, “Automatic” and “ Pretty” as well as their slower side with “Nerve”. Rob Damiani opened up to the crowd about how their last song “T-shirt Song” came to be. He explained how he was going through a rough time and how his friends lifted him up. Something that makes these guys so great is their ability to put their entire heart and soul into their music. That’s what people connect to.
