Boyce Avenue
, a Florida-based band popular for its strong acoustic roots and
melodic rock sound, consists of the three brothers Alejandro
, Fabian
, and Daniel Manzano
. The brothers first came together as a band in 2004 when Alejandro
(lead vocals, guitar, piano), Fabian (guitar, vocals), and their older
brother Daniel (bass, percussion, vocals) reconnected after pursuing
their respective educational goals.

In 2007, in an effort to share their music and ideas with the world, the
band decided to start filming and posting videos on YouTube of their own
songs and some of their favorite songs by other artists. Some of the
first few videos they posted included acoustic versions of songs such as
Justin Timberlake’s “LoveStoned”, Rihanna’s “Umbrella”, and Coldplay’s
“Viva la Vida”, among many others. The videos began to resonate
instantly with YouTube viewers. And over the course of 2007 and 2008,
the band amassed millions of views and over 100,000 subscribers to their
YouTube channel. To date, the band has accumulated over 165,000,000
views on YouTube, with the total number of subscribers approaching
300,000, making their channel one of the most frequented worldwide on
YouTube. In early 2009, the band performed for an estimated total of
25,000 fans over four headline shows in the Philippines. On the heels of
its whirlwind success in the Philippines, the band returned to the
United States to commence its first U.S. headline tour. The tour saw
sold out shows in such major markets as Boston, Washington, D.C., and
San Francisco, with other shows near capacity. The band’s loyal
international following was evident again as the band sold out shows in
multiple territories, including Germany and the United Kingdom. Most
recently, the band returned to the Philippines in early 2010 to play
festival shows with Kris Allen and the Jabbawockeez, playing to an
estimated 18,000 people in two nights. And the band’s Spring 2010
European tour has already seen the band playing to larger rooms in all
territories, with several shows sold-out in advance.

Boyce Avenue play The Olympia Theatre on Friday 20 May. Tickets priced
23 euro inclusive of booking fee are on sale now.
