 Published on: 9th September 2019   |   By: Amelie Gregory   |   Category: Uncategorized

A band from Ruislip have had a fun filled summer of festival performances, including a spot at Glastonbury in front of 3,000 people earlier this year.  

Angels N’ Bandits consists of six band members of four girls and two boys, aged 14 to 17. 

Band members Angel, 15, Ellie, 14, AJ, 16, Asha, 15, Frankie, 17 and Reece, 17 have already performed at famous venues including Cavern Club in Liverpool, Indigo at The O2 in London, Event City in Manchester, Hyde Park and most recently the Avalon Café stage at Glastonbury Festival. 

The band also opened for Brit award-winner, Tom Odell and Scouting for Girls at the last Pub in the Park festival in St Albans. 

Frankie, Reece, Ellie and AJ have grown up in Ruislip and have been friends for years, with Reece and Frankie both attending Ruislip High. 

Reece is currently doing his A-Levels at Bishop Ramsey, he has swum for Hillingdon swim club and played for Ruislip Rangers before moving to Ickenham FC. 

Frankie played rugby for Ruislip Rugby Club and football for Wealdstone.

Ellie is at Haydon High School and has been a member of Eastcote cricket club since birth. 

Frankie said: “This summer gave us the best experiences with the best people, doing what we love doing and putting a smile on people’s faces. What more could we ask for?”

Reece said: “When our manager told us about Glastonbury, I was in the middle of doing my homework and I threw it all up in the air and danced around the room. 

“I then realised it was on the same day as two of my AS exams but my teachers were incredible and helped move my exam schedule around so I could perform at the legendary festival.”

Angel said: “We will never forget the high we were on after our Glastonbury performance and then the four-hour escort in a convoy of land rovers across the fields full of music lovers. 

“Back at school the next day it all seemed like one big dream.”

AJ said: “We’ve performed all over the country over the past few years, but this year was epic. You just can’t top Glastonbury.”

Angels N’ Bandits are currently working with top producers including Naughty Boy and are focusing on releasing original music, as well as working with TV production company Whizzkids and Entertainment One.
