Like you, I had no idea who Daniele Groff was (See youtube video or official site).
Daniele Groff Italian Singer in ParisI believe he’s big in Italy, where he is from. My girlfriend’s friend works for a record label in Paris, they work solely with Italian bands and so last Sunday (June 15th 2008) we went along to support her in promoting Daniele Groff, who was doing a free concert in place d’italie Paris. Having checked out his music on youTube it really wasn’t my personal cup of tea, and perhaps has a much greater success with teenage Italian girls, but it was a good atmosphere and live; with just two acoustic guitars, he did have an impressive singing voice. There were a few Italian fans turned up, but the demographic was a real mix, mainly of older people (about 50 in total); I imagine he wasn’t used to such a small turn out, but it made for a better atmosphere. My girlfriend who’s fluent in Italian as well as English (I despise her! She’s spent the last four years learning Japanese too) insisted on translating half the songs, and I’m sure I would have been more impressed being oblivious to the lyrics. She got excited at the prospect of meeting him after the show, but he was busy signing and talking to people, so we decided to head back.
