Glastonbury Calling 2017 - The Dead FreightsLive review of the set at The Bocabar for Glastonbury Calling 2017
Live Review – The Dead Freights at Glastonbury Calling 2017
Describing themselves as ‘A four piece rock and roll band from Southampton’ the Dead Freights took to the stage at The Bocabar. The band are Rob Franklin (singer and guitar) Charlie James (singer and guitar) Louis Duarte (drums) and Robby Spencer (bass guitar). The Dead Freights are an exciting, fast-paced, enthusiastic band whose high energy songs are complex and rocky, with melodies and harmonies scattered throughout. Their performance quickly drew a large crowd, with plenty of dancing and it is almost impossible to not move and groove to these guys.
Their style of rock and roll is quite unique, Beatles like, and yet not the Beatles, catchy tunes and up- tempo beats that change when you least expect it. All are polished performers, the energy and enthusiasm from the band draws in the audience, and as one audience member said ‘you can’t but help to tap your feet’. The Dead Freights gave an epic performance and are not to be missed should they play near you.
