Fusing raw overdriven electrics, rich acoustics and catchy refrains that demand to be sung-a-long to”. – Hivefest 2019
Formed in 2016 the Reinforcements took songs written by Richy for a solo looping show he was doing, (and still is) transformed them into full on rock tracks. Within two months of forming the band began gigging, planning recordings and working some new original songs.
Since then the guys have recorded and released a live EP, a studio EP, a single with video and are working on more. They have played gigs and festivals across scotland supporting the likes of Beasto Blanco on one of only two UK tour dates, headlining the main stage at Meadows Festival and played to audiences of 4k or more
The live show is high on the agenda for Richy and his Reinforcements, these guys aim to entertain every audience they play in front of and give their all to every show they do, they never just turn up and play some good tunes, they put on a show designed to entertain any audience every time. Driven by the multi instrumental talent and relentless energy of Richy this creative, forward thinking band will only improve and continue to gain a following as they bring their infectious rock music and brilliant live show to more new audiences all the while continuously striving to make it better.
