The Hacienda (a name borrowed from the historical Manchester club) is a indie rock project formed by five members from Florence in December 2003...
Their CD Picking Pennies off the floor, released in February 2011, received great feedback not only in Italy...
After their 2 gigs in Rome and in Padoa on 7th and 8th October (supporting Liam Gallagher's Beady Eye...) , Alessandro (vocals and guitar) sent us this interesting report:
"It all begun as 5 young lads from Florence made their own Beady Eye supporting debut in March this year in Milan, but no one of us thought that it would be happening again. So after an hometown (Firenze) gig in June the band has been called to the army again for two more shows in Rome and Padova. After one hour chatting about music, clothes, shirts and style, Liam Gallagher just walked with us to the stage in Rome making us ready for the fight.... And it was a proper heavyweight championship match between the Hacienda and the crowd. Rome people were amazing and made us feel like we won the champions league durin the entire set. We wanted to feel it as much as we could wearing the right clothes (shirts and t shirts by Three Stroke Productions...) and showing the right style durin the whole thing. Thank you LG. Thank you Rome". The Hacienda
