Rocco Deluca @ The Troubadour

Brotha Braedon made it to the Rocco Deluca show last week, and he's here to share his experience:

If you haven't heard of Rocco Deluca yet, you need to listen up. His music is a fusion of blues and soul, mixed with rock and a punk rock heart. In Rocco's words, "The music I was raised on had heat. Energy. That feeling of aggression. The music of today seems so washed out and generic. To get 'em back we need to stick the real soul, that punk element back into it. It's the only way I know how to play it."

Rocco's father was the touring guitarist for the old famous blues player, Bo Diddley. Rocco himself became the opening act for Taj Mahal, John Mayall and John Lee Hooker, and has played with the late great Johnny cash. Rocco plays the Dobro steel guitar for most of his set, and plays it with agression. His vocals are powerful, extremely melodic and sung from his heart. With his band, Rocco Deluca and the Burden, he has put together an amazing compilation of great music. The band just left for a European tour, where they have gained great popularity and will be back in the states in a couple weeks. Make sure to catch the next show.
