Road Trip – made up of members Rye, Andy, Mikey, Brooklyn and Jack – are adored by their legion of fans. The band have a huge social media following and are embarking on their first headline tour of 2017 throughout March and April – the Miss Taken EP Tour 2017 – visiting Manchester, Liverpool, London, Bristol, Newcastle, Glasgow and Dublin. Josh Gray and Bronnie have been announced as support acts so far. You can buy tickets to the tour here.
We spoke with some of Road Trip’s fans (Roadies) to find out why they love the band so much.
Hannah, 18 – Northern Ireland
I went through a very rough time over summer 2016 and I lost a lot of friends, but it was Road Trip that pulled me through the horrible experience. I now have amazing friends who are there for me. Road Trip are beyond amazing to their fans. They treat every single one the same and never pick favourites. The boys have saved more than just me, maybe more than half of their fans. They deserve all the recognition they receive.

I love Road Trip so much because they are so talented and amazing singers. They make me smile everyday and I don’t know where I would be without you guys. You are always here for your fans no matter what.
Anna, 15 – Cheltenham
Road Trip are amazing! Their vocals are just perfect. They’re also so kind to fans and try and communicate with everyone. They always make me smile when I’m down and have helped me through a lot. My favourite member is Mikey as he is so cute and adorable. They are unique and not like any other boyband. They’re all crazy and insane!
Shahrar, 15 – Israel
I love Road Trip because they always care about their fans. They are funny and they are always there for you, even though they have a lot of fans. Honestly, they mean so much to me. They know me and I am so happy about it. I can’t wait to fly all the way from Israel to see them very soon.
Abbey, 14 – Ireland
The reason I like Road Trip is that they are so down to earth. They try to connect and interact with as many fans as possible. In a way I feel like I have been on the journey with them. I feel like they have helped me through a few rough patches in my life and have made me stronger.
Shauna, 14 – Northern Ireland
The reason why I love them is that they are such amazing people and they always make me laugh and happy and they never fail to let anyone down. They gave me a cool nickname too!
Sabrina, 14 – Denmark
They are good singers, they have amazing personalities, they inspire you and they include you in a new family. You get to make new friends and they somehow make you feel noticed, even if you live in another country. They are also good looking, funny, and find time to make vlogs for us Roadies that’s amazing. All in all, they are amazing guys who think of others and care. I am proud to be a Roadie.
Veronica, 14 – Ireland
Road Trip have been a really important part of my life for a good few years now. My love for them is unexplainable, they put a smile on my face day after day, everything they do cheers me up! I’m really proud of them. They are very caring and kind and they know how to make people’s day. Andy, Rye, Brooklyn, Mikey and Jack are probably the most amazing people you will ever meet. They are really talented and it’s hard not to fall in love with them. With just one smile they changed my life and within seconds they managed to steal my heart. The boys mean the world to me, I don’t think I ever love anybody as much as them. My heart fills up with joy the minute I hear their voices. There is no specific reason as to why I love them, I just love who they are and how they act, what they do and what they say. People say nobody is perfect but being completely honest every inch of them is perfect from the bottom to the top. I wish they could know how thankful I am for everything they do. Road Trip mean the entire world to me and I would never give them up for anything or anyone else. I love my babies so much!
Izzie, 13 – Coventry
I love Road Trip because they care for their fans. Most bands don’t notice fans very much, but our boys do. Each band member individually can make someone’s day. I love them because they’re so hard working, but still have the time to have fun as friends and be there for their fans. They brought me to my best friend/twinny Izzy and I’m so grateful for that. Without them, along with several other people, I don’t think I’d actually be alive. They’ve kept me going through everything just by being themselves. The fact that they don’t have to hide who they really are is the thing I love most about them. They don’t care what people think, they carry on being their own person and I’m glad to have idols like them.
Becca, 15 – Edinburgh
I love Road Trip because they are very talented boys. They aren’t like any other boy band, they love to interact with their fans and they care for us as much as we care for them. I also love how the Roadie family and Road Trip are like one big massive family. I have met so many new friends through this band from all over the world and I love these friends like they are my sisters. I also love Road Trip as they love to show us their daily lives and be open with us. I love them because they are so so funny and make me laugh and smile everyday. I love how they are so determined to make their dreams come true. Now they are living their dreams and I feel this is Road Trip’s year!
Lisa, 15 – Belgium
I hope Road Trip will be better known and travel outside the UK. There are many people who would like to meet them who don’t live in the UK. I’m a fan of Road Trip because when they sing live they tell their songs as a story. They are also so sweet with their fans. Someday I will see them. They are really great. I hope they understand their fans love them a lot and everything that they are about!
Ruby, 13 – Manchester
I love them Road Trip because they are the nicest people that I have ever met, they are always here for me. I may not always get noticed but when they do notice me it makes me feel very special! They are my world, my everything. Without them I wouldn’t be here. I appreciate everything they do for us! Just waiting to see them in my notifications is funny but when I see them there I feel loved. Missing these boys is hard as it’s not everyday that you get to meet beautiful people like them! Love and miss them millions!
Caitlin, 18 – England
I love Road Trip because I appreciate all the hard work they put in writing and producing original and cover songs for us Roadies. We are not just fans, we are all a big happy family from different parts of the world linking together to show our support for the boys. All 5 of them have something special about them – Mikey’s charm, Rye is the banter king, Andy is the DJ Fovvs, Brooklyn’s cheekiness and Jack’s craziness. It makes the fandom really enjoyable to be a part of and I always want to thank Blair (their manager) for making Road Trip happen because without him and the boys, they wouldn’t be a band. I would also like to say that I’ve met so many amazing people through the band and I really can’t wait to see them on tour in Manchester and can’t wait to hear the songs they have been working hard on. They are all very talented singers and I love them so much. I am a Roadie forever, I really appreciate everything they do for us.
