The Magic Room Band are a 4-piece band that consists of two Spaniards (Andrés Granadero and Javier Ema) and two Englishmen (Jesse Mills and Dan Jones).
Their music has been described as ego-less rock and roll with sublime tones of classic blues. Perhaps they are the modern version of The Kinks?
Their live performances possess plenty of guts and bravado which are stripped of special effects and digital enhancements.
The song-writing is carefully cultivated and structured yet the overall effect and performance is like the wild garden: raw and full of promise
Their debut self-released EP “The Magic Room Band” was partly recorded at Pumpkin Studios and completed at their home studio (the magic room). Their sound is powerful, catchy and reminiscent of the real rock-and-rollers.

HOW THE MAGIC ROOM BAND FORMED
Back in 2011, sharing a grotty house in Fallowfield (Manchester) they grew from friends with a shared passion for music to a group with a consistent sound. In their home, music would be constantly on and loud, listening from The Rolling Stones, NOFX, Franz Ferdinand or Neil Young. Surprisingly enough, that moldy storage room in the back of their house turned up to be a recording studio! It was once used by their landlord’s post/punk band “one brain cell” to rehearse and record their cassette albums. After few evenings of cleaning and tidying, that room became the truly Magic Room. Long sessions of neighbor-deafening practices would define the raw sound of The Magic Room Band.
Despite the band being born and breed in Manchester, not a single Mancunian accent will be heard, as they came from four different corners of the universe, all attracted to Manchester like moths are to car lights.
Their sound is influenced by the purity of blues and the strength of rock. Not a single effect, pre/recorded tracks or samples will be heard on their live performances. Their challenge is bringing real-played music to this relentlessly-shifting-to-fake society we live in.
