On this week’s show we headed to Toronto, to speak with Andrew Keyes from Canadian based Irish band, Romes.
Interview with Andrew Keyes from Romes
I first heard about an Irish band in Toronto way back in 2011. They were the band that would eventually be known as Romes. Back in 2011, they were known as Nightbox and I interviewed the band for Goldenplec and featured them on Culture Cafe on RTE 2XM.
Since then, the band have undergone a line up change and while the current members were part of Nightbox, they have a different edge.
