Doncaster Band, “Bang Bang Romeo” have been around for years. I remember them playing a small gig in Scunthorpe back when Scunthorpe Nights first started and they’ve also graced the alternative stage at Party In The Pines back in 2015. So the news today that they will be supporting P!nk on European dates of her World Tour is exciting for everyone who’s followed them so far and obviously the trio themselves.
Fronted by vocal powerhouse Anastasia Walker and featuring Ross Cameron (guitars) and Richard Gartland (drums), Bang Bang Romeo are a propelling force for female-fronted bands in a male dominated industry, and a strong and open voice for the LGBT community. What I like about the band is, they haven’t forgotten their roots, they might not be based in Doncaster anymore but they still give back to the town. They recently headlined Doncaster Pride, which was a sea of phone torches waving in the air. It was pretty magical for Doncaster, being one of the smaller prides around this really ended the night with a “Bang”.
It just goes to show that it really is worth supporting smaller venues and local bands. Gigs played by bands you’ve never heard of, you should give them a go…because ultimately if you don’t support local independent gigs you won’t be able to say, “I saw them in a room with 30 other people and now their playing stadiums and big festivals”.
