Don Broco Don Broco’s roots go back to the late 2000s when vocalist Rob Damiani, guitarist Simon Delaney, drummer Matt Donnelly and bassist Luke Rayner were attending Bedford Modern School together. After secondary school, they went on hiatus to attend university, but made a pact to return to playing post-graduation. Between 2009 and 2011, Don Broco performed at several UK festivals including Camden Crawl, Underage, Download, Sonisphere, Slam Dunk and Reading & Leeds. Although Rayner departed the band in 2012, they released their debut album Priorities that year and it broke into the UK top 40 singles chart.
