The Room – Broken 

With the news that Wokingham Festival is going ahead we hear that there is going to be a new line up of local, but internationally renowned, six-piece rock band The Room especially for the festival.

Bassist Andy Rowe, guitarist Eric Bouillette and vocalist Martin Wilson are to be replaced in those roles respectively by festival organisers Stan Hetherington, Andrew Merritt and Chris Hillman.

When asked about this exciting news, Chris York, the band’s drummer, said, ‘We haven’t told Andy, Eric and Martin yet but I’m sure they will be happy with that as Stan, Andy and Chris will be able to do it so much better’ – theroom.band
