Rocco DeLuca at Ramshead in Baltimore
With a silky smooth voice that you would associate with someone much older, Rocco DeLuca has just the right amount of southern twang and passion to effectively pull you in to the lyrics he pours out for someone from California. Live, he is engaging and humble, commanding the presence of this audience without hopping around the stage and making you dizzy. He stood center stage humbly strumming his guitar and tapping his foot to the beat. You could feel the energy and passion he has for his songs throughout the RamsHead Live stage and if you closed your eyes for a moment, you can clearly see the path he is trying to take you down. He is thoroughly entertaining to watch and listen to and is an act to look forward to at this year's Bonnaroo. How can you not like an album called "I Trust You to Kill Me?" With a voice like Rocco's, you might actually be soothed into complacency.
*In addition to Jaime, Sarah will be writing in from time to time covering shows in the Baltimore/Annapolis/Washington DC area. She is my big sister and is souly responsible for my addiciton to The Cure, Depeche Mode, R.E.M., U2 and other fantastic music that came out during the 80's. It is nice because now i can 'teach' her a few things, even if she would never admit it.
