The Banquets

Hey, y’all. I am Shay. This is thebuzzr podcast. On air indie, from my pad to yours over the airways.

Today in the show, THE BANQUETS! “The Banquets are an alt rock/pop 4-piece that formed in Leeds during 2018. They’ve been described as “a modern-day Fleetwood Mac” and have attracted wide acclaim during their time as a band.”

Gemma Dee, Leon Russell-Hills & Sir Francis Watson join me to discuss the band updates & spin their new release “Mary Mary”.

Thank you for tuning in tonight. Enjoy the show!

Band Bio

The Banquets are an alt- rock/pop trio from Leeds with talent in their souls and ambition in their hearts. They had an explosive arrival to the music scene in 2019 and 2020, making an appearance at the Great British Folk Festival, and supporting the likes of The South (formerly The Beautiful South) and legendary icon Toyah Wilcox. 

The Banquets’ music is a simple mix of rock, blues, and pop music, whilst maintaining the great tradition of British rock. The musical influences of the band stretch far and wide, and go right back to the early 20th century blues scene. Their sound is hugely impacted by the music that has flowed out of America over the last century, and like most British music, it reflects back that sound and rubs in some northern British magic.
