Route 19 - Pop Punk/Ska ,UK(E96)

About: Route 19,cool 4 piece band from Selby

"Band formed by singer (Joel) and guitarist (James Maczuga) and drafted in younger brother of singer Joel (Connor) on drums, started off as a three piece called suveillance singing pure pop punk influenced by greenday and blink 182, later drafting in former bass player Max Seabrooke and in more recent times gaining new bass player Sam Proctor and taking on the alias of ROUTE 19. the music is now more grown up and takes influence from early oasis, early jam but still maintaining that punk edge."
