““Caught Resin playing the Riverside festival today. Wow. It’s be easy to slot these boys into a genre, to start comparing them to Queens of the Stone Age, or maybe even to go back to the likes of Black Sabbath, but that would miss the point. This is music of today, full of energy and happiness, a band that clearly loves their art. Great tunes, well structured songs, sublime harmonies, brilliant performers, but even that doesn’t pin down the sheer joy that this band has in playing their music, and the enthusiasm of the crowd listening to them. A great set, and a band I shall definitely go and see again””

““I don’t envy a band that have to follow the previous, however Resin were not phased, starting with a solid, rocky drive that immediately showed their musical talent, both in writing and performing. I took to the singer straight away, a powerful vocalist with a pure rock sound. Their own compositions had the pleasing tones of late 90s/early naughtys bands such as Staind. Instrumentally Resin have some real talent; a brilliant drummer and a really good solidly bass player (with a very impressive beard!) created the foundations for the guitarists to let loose. Both players use their guitars very well, especially lead guitarist Mark Roseby … wow! What a guitarist! Resin finished their set with a rendition of Alive by Pearl Jam, and my word they nailed it, totally made by Mark’s incredible solo.””

“Normally a full electric band, Hinckley's Resin, performed tonight as a four piece acoustic group. The vocals from lead singer James Botha and guitarist Mark Roseby were well blended. This a Group of well experienced and skilled musicians who are every bit as good at their acoustic work as they are when playing with their drummer in a full electric set. The performance was laden with style and character and they delivered a superb set of original songs and covers, including Michael Jackson's Billy Jean, to which they brought their own inimitable style. A pleasing end to a really good evening of musical talent.”

“Resin-instinct-oh yeah!!!!!!!! grungy reminds me of the great bands from the 90's but they have a particular sound that i think will go as far as they want to take it...resin has a great future..just keep rockn 100% rockstar certified”

“Playing an extended set of covers and their own songs, the finale to the show capped a night of quality entertainment. Lead vocalist James Botha put on an impressive performance, showing talented interpretations of songs and delivering well rounded singing. They covered Jackson's 'Billy Jean'; it was a convincingly good interpretation, not just a karaoke style performance of it. They brought the song alive, putting in feeling and drama. Not having seen them before, I was impressed by their musical skill, their dedication and their ability to evoke mood and atmosphere, both in their own songs and in their covers. I did like their cover of a System of Down song. ”
