What people say about us:

Cerys Mathews and Band

"I wanted to play somewhere like The Band Room; it's a fantastic place to open a tour." Cerys Matthews.

"please please check out the website. www.thebandroom.co.uk the place is absolutely cute and the surrounding country side is full of beauty and peace. this is one of those times you can write something like that and be completely not embarrased because it's just plain true. we're in farndale I think? I don't know but it's one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. "
[Cerys Matthews band member, Ben."]

Hansome Family

by Rennie Sparks of The Handsome Family, written after the show at

"The Band Room is way up in the Yorkshire Moors. Steve is worried about werewolves. I assure him that most likely he's already been bitten, having slept with his window open in York. There are fat pheasants eyeing us suspiciously from fence posts as we drive up the curving roads. I take a walk in the woods before the show and start crying a little bit. It's so nice to be somewhere outside the manmade world for a few minutes before soundcheck.

After the show we load our equipment out under a sky full of stars and there is nothing to hear save the whispering wind and the call of some night bird. In the morning there's a sheepdog rounding up cows on a green meadow outside my window."

Bic Runga

by Bic Runga, in an interview before her show

"[The Band Room] - I like that sort of setting; intimate."

Jeb Loy Nichols: 10th October 2000

I did a gig in Farndale, in The Band Room, in the Yorkshire moors. A lovely spot, a good gig,
wonderful people. I look forward to going back, next time with a band. It's just the kind of gig I like.
