They say that music has no borders, and this is a true fact when it comes to the Royal Flash. I had the pleasure of seeing them perform in Canada at Indie Week 2020 and they did not disappoint.

Cashbox caught up with them back in their home settings in a town outside of Madrid, Spain and they had much to say of how they came to make Royal Flash a reality. Here are there Top Ten Answers:

1) How long have you been together and how did Royal Flash meet?

Jaime and myself have been lifelong friends since primary school and we met Israa later on and also Ray. Edu is the latest addition to the band from a year and a half ago and it was love at first sight.

2) Was there anyone in your families who were musically inclined? if so who?

Yes especially Miguel and Ray’s families. Miguel’s father is an amazing guitarist as well as making his own music, so he grew up surrounded by music and started playing from a very early age. Ray comes also from a renowned musical family on the Madrid music scene.

Cashbox Canada participated in our first Indie Week Canada and oh what a week it was!

The first Cashbox Caravan Showcase was Thursday, November 14 at the B-Side Lounge, a cozy gem of a venue with a great stage and friendly staff. A cocktail hour show from 5-7pm featured Toronto’s newest shining star Ventresca, followed up by veteran singer-songwriters Barry Stagg and Don Graham.

Cashbox Canada Magazine Hosts Two Showcases at Indie Week 2019

The Cashbox Caravan continues its journey, having stopped in France (MIDEM in Cannes, France) and Orebro, Sweden (Live at Heart Sweden) and ending our year back here in Canada at the ever-popular Indie Week 2019.

“The idea behind the travelling Cashbox Canada Caravan was to give indie artists a chance to showcase at major events and have the opportunity to perform for agents, pr people, and labels with first-class sound and on professional stages all on a global level,” says organizer Sandy Graham. “We are proud to be able to offer an alternative way of showcasing at major events where the competition for submission is so high.”

Now the third event this year of the Cashbox Caravan will be back in the country of origin for the magazine, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

“Indie Week has given us the opportunity to bring talent from other areas in the world so we will be able to have acts from not just Canada, but Sweden, Spain and the USA,” Graham says.

The first CASHBOX CARAVAN SHOWCASE is at the cocktail hours of:
5 pm – 8 pm
Thursday November 14
B-Side Lounge (669 College St)
Doors: 5:00pm
