Feeling a bit camera shy


Boss Volenti are a hard hitting, hip shaking, no nonsense rock 'n' roll band from Dublin. Their heroes range from such artists as Thin Lizzy and Al Green to Led Zeppelin and Hall & Oates. Rob Daly and Dan O'Connor first met while playing in bands around Dublin. Then followed Laura Mackey, who Dan met while both were studying guitar at college. Drummer Graham Hopkins got wind of the Boss Volenti sound and when he joined, all the pieces of the puzzle slotted into place.

Volenti cut their live teeth at the Hard Working Class Heroes Festival last September in Dublin to rave reviews. On the strength of this, they were invited to play the In The City Festival in Manchester last October. Since then Boss Volenti have toured Ireland numerous times both as headliners and playing support to such bands as The Chalets and Republic of Loose.

In February of this year, Boss Volenti independently released their first single 'Deeper Than Deep' and it went straight into the Irish top 40. They then released their second single 'Ain't no Use' in June to even greater success. It received heavy daytime airplay, was playlisted by 2fm, championed by Tony Fenton on Today FM and regularly played on BBC NI Radio. Both singles are still playlisted on Dublin's Phantom FM.

The band have an enviable reputation for their live performances and are fast becoming one of the most exciting live acts around.

Boss Volenti release their eponymous debut album on September 8th. Full of catchy riffs and stomping grooves, it is a sound completely of their own.
