DES ROCS - Bologna

Danny Rocco aka Des Rocs returns to Italy after the wonderful reception our country gave him at the beginning of 2024, with three dates including one sold out in advance in Milan. This time the young rocker will be on stage at theEstragon in Bologna Saturday 5 October 2024. I tickets will be available on Ticketone e Ticketmaster from 11am on Friday 26 April.

Des Rocs is a true force of nature, a rock star finding his way, taking elements from the past to chart a new course with guitar, bass and drums. Dream Machinehis most recent album released on the legendary indie rock label Sumerian Recordsis the vehicle that Des Rocs uses to take us to this new place where life is more intense and rock'n'roll is part of the zeitgeist. Its particular bedroom arena-rock - a mix of DIY intimacy and large-scale vision - is ready to infect the masses. "Dream Machine is the beginning of a journey into the Des Cinematic Universemy escape route. I have spent my life dreaming of a certain kind of grandiose, modern rock'n'roll, firmly on the shoulders of giants but filtered through my own eyes and experiences,' he says Des. Produced by Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, PJ Harvey), Matt Wallace (Faith No More, Maroon 5) and the same Danny Rocco, Dream Machine is an invitation to follow Des down the rock'n'roll rabbit hole of Alice in Wonderlanda journey to the centre of the messianic mind of the singer, songwriter and guitar hero, who drags us out of our melancholy to relive the glory days of rock, psychedelia, metal, punk, grunge, hardcore and into the future.

With a move worthy of Elvis Presley and a playful grin a la Johnny Thunders, this proud New Yorker has found his true calling at nightfall, in the clubs of the Big Apple and the rest of the United States, playing with the same intensity in front of 90,000 concert-goers as the Rolling Stones at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia in 2019, or opening for the European concerts of the Muse. "Making music for us is an existential matter," he says. Desproud heir to the New York rock tradition ranging from the Velvet Underground at Strokes passing by Kiss, Ramones e Sonic Youth. "We spend our whole lives making a living from music without having a real job. We are really happy to be on a stage."
