Tag Archive: Hit The Floor

Having last seen these guys in a little bar in Torquay a year or so back, it’s clear to see the Broco boys have come a long way. Playing Download’s Red Bull Stagethe Broco boys pretty much owned everyone in what was a stunning set from start to finish. With such a tight set it was almost a shame to be seeing them on such a small stage as they played with as much energy and musicianship as anyone on the larger stages. With their rapidly growing fan base though the chances of a stage upgrade for next year shouldn’t be far away.

One thing that really sells these guys as well as their music is the fact they are all genuinely nice guys and it really comes across in their set. You can tell they are really enjoying themselves as much as the crowd with even charismatic frontman Rob…. taking time to get into the crowd to join the pit while the band give it their all.

Set highlights:  ‘Thug Workout’ (any song with the line ‘sexy girls come up to me and they always come if you know what I mean’ is gonna be an instant crowd pleaser), Beautiful Morning and the epic riffage of closing track Dreamboy.

When your girlfriend names a virtual fish after one of the band you know success is only round the corner!  2011 is gonna be a big year for Don Broco and HTF are backing them all the way!

So, probably the most random line up I have seen for a while. Don Broco, one of my favourite UK bands were supposed to headline the White Rabbit tonight but a mix up now meant they were first on the bill with some hardcore metal? This was going to be interesting to say the least!

I loved how it was half past six in the evening and the White Rabbit was rammed. Don Broco really have a large following in Plymouth now, with most of the crowd sporting their famous ‘Sexy Girls Come Up To Me T-Shirts’. As expected, a cracking set list with new songs ‘Beautiful Morning’ and ‘Top of the World’ being personal favourites and a good mix of old classics such as ‘Thug Workout’ whacked in there too. These boys never seem to disappoint me, ever!

Lead vocalist, Rob Damiani, sounds a little strained tonight but lets be honest, who’s voice would not be tired after singing practically every night for the past two weeks. Never the less, they still sound awesome. Rob is modelling a ‘Dead Poets’ t-shirt which I find a surprise from his normal attire. What happened to the brightly coloured vests Rob?

Carnage erupts during their last track of the night ‘Dreamboy’, as they ask fans to get on their friends shoulder for a wall of death. At this point you can imagine where I was stood, at the bar where it was safe!

An entertaining performance by Bedford’s finest and I look forward to coming across them at a festival this year. Well done lads!
