The Robbie Boyd Band have played to packed out audiences at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, IndigO2 and the O2 Academy Islington, and supported the likes of The Delays and Johnny Flynn. They kicked off their 2011 festival season with raved about performances at Get Loaded In The Park and Beach Break Live, and are set to perform at Standon Calling and Harvest at Jimmy’s.
Sir Tim Rice has featured two of Robbie’s songs on his BBC Radio 2 programme American Pie, including the single Oh Alaska.
An eclectic mix of talented musicians using violins, mandolins, trumpets and four foot wind chimes amongst others, accompany Robbie’s sensitive songwriting to produce a uniquely 'funky folk' sound. They have brilliantly catchy songs that will stay in your head for days, and are generating plenty of buzz around their hometown London circuit and far beyond.
Promising energetic and uplifting live performances, the Robbie Boyd Band are carving a niche into the Folk/Pop/Rock genre of the moment with a twist of their own.
“A band of craftsmen. They all know how to play their instruments to great effect and play a style of music that’s so ‘in’ at the moment. The band was described by the judges on the day as ‘slick, professional and awesome.’”
