The Royal We started when all three members were with other bands. They played together a time or two when filling in for other band members and knew (pretty much immediately) that this trio needed to be born.
Guitarist and vocalist, John Tolson, is a local guy. He has played in many bands, most recently with Sharp Comfort.
Both Jason Sell (drums) and Randy Hedstrom (bass and vocals) came to live in the Richmond area through bands. Jason was traveling with Puddleduck; Randy was with Driving Wheel and then later had a long stint with Blackwater.
The Royal We formed in April 2012 and started gigging in September 2012. They pride themselves on the variety of music they play and the trio interpretations needed to play these songs. Good friends who just enjoy playing together make for some great times and fun music.
