“When I saw Moose Patrol perform in the Castle Rock Studio's Battle of the Bands, I could tell that they were something special. They performed with the confidence of a much older band and their energetic set would go down well at any festival. ”
"With the right exposure and determination I really think these guys could become the most exciting band in Manchester." Opening the night we have the young Moose Patrol and for a band with only a combined age of 45, they really know how to rock out. Not only that, their songs are catchy and upbeat, with the song For the Summer really being the highlight with fun backing vocals which really stick in your head. You can really see the influence of Nirvana in their songs especially with the guitar work, Adam Bostock has strong rock 'n' roll vocals which could really develop into an impressive voice in years to come with practice. Adam Lee is a great drummer, some timing issues here and there but nothing majorly noticeable, and Connor Hamner's stage presence is really great to watch, he genuinely looks really happy and a natural performer using his shouty backing vocals to give an edge to each of their songs.
“The young Castleton band Moose Patrol headlined the event and impressed with their tight musicianship. Bassist Connor spoke to Rochdale Online before their set. He said: “It’s our first proper outdoor gig. The rain might put people off, but we’ll bring them back!” ”
