Deuce Act and Heavyweight Champ

Over the past 12 months Deuce Management & Promotion has been collaborating with US cable TV showBongo Boy Rock n’ Roll TV Show resulting in a number of Deuce Acts having their music videos exposed to their viewers. 
Deuce is now pleased to announce that Deuce Act Franco & The Dreadnought has now been featured on the latest show featuring former World Heavyweight boxer Larry Holmes, who during his career fought the likes ofMuhammad Ali and Mike Tyson to name but a few.
Since its first broadcast in December 2011, The Bongo Boy Rock n’ Roll Show has been growing in viewing numbers each and every month.  The show is dedicated to exposing the arts to new and old fans alike by featuring original music, videos, art, and history from different cultures.  Guest interviews are recorded in the studio of SHOWTIME in New Jersey, or remotely via Skype and are then broadcast 100 times per month 6 days per week, and syndicated on 16 channels including Comcast Cable, CableVision, Time Warren Cable, RCN,and FiOS in the USA, as well as 24/7 on the Internet. 
You can view the latest show featuring Franco & The Dreadnought and Larry Holmes below.  Franco & The Dreadnought appears at approximately 20.40 in the show:

Although the name Franco & The Dreadnought suggests the project is a full band effort, Franco actually plays all of the instruments on his recordings; the Dreadnought being his Martin DXME Dreadnought acoustic guitar. 
Since going solo, Franco has been creating a name for himself on the festival circuit resulting in a number of other opportunities coming his way which is enabling his music to be heard by many people.  His biggest achievement to date though, has been personally asked by the Archbishop Desmond Tutu to write a song celebrating the life of Nelson Mandela which was presented to him as a gift on his 90th birthday.  
On top of all of this, in the past few months alone, Franco has performed at 3 festivals in the UK, completed a tour of Scotland, signed licensing deals worldwide, had an instrumental composition used for a major TV advert shown on over 70 UK channels, and most recently featured on a national BBC radio alongside a number of other national radio stations too.
