"Old Ricoh are a four piece band from Coventry and Warwickshire who like to ‘Have it….rock and roll style’ They are a young band with immense presence and undeniable talent and need to be seen Live to be appreciated. In the bands short life they have been touched by tragedy with the loss of their founder member and ‘Drumming Prodigy’ Andrew Travers. This experience has broadened the shoulders of the band and stoked their inner desire to succeed……for their friend and brother. Old Ricoh to date have entered competitions of high regard and played many great local venues with success, so much so they have been filmed by MTV after reaching the final stages of the ‘get seen, get heard…oxjam’ and were aired on MTV 2 throughout the whole of March/April 08. A programme called ‘The Contenders’ will also be aired in May o8 on MTV with Jo Whiley narrating that will feature Old Ricoh. The band is currently taking part in the surface unsigned festival having reached the final stages of that also and impressing all the way. The band have been Coventry and Warwickshire’s band of the month for March 08 and were very proud to play at The Enemy’s home coming gig after show party at the Ricoh Arena. …from strength to strength.
