Irish Live Music

Live music is great, and The Coal Quay Bar is a relatively new bar here in Cork that has bands in on a regular basis. Last Sunday Limerick band the willful played there and were great! So, while Veron and her friends sang along to the band some guy in a baseball cap played air guitar to his own private audience of the whole pub as he persisted in jumping around in front of the band! Ah yes, fear the designated driver who has a blog! 🙂
Despite the fact that they come from Kilkenny, another band, UP 4 it are well worth going to see. They play a lot of rock and metal and have a brilliant medley of rock and metal intros that’ll get everyone going! I just wish they hadn’t come over to our table with that microphone.. *cough* *cough*
Another band I saw a long time ago and in another life is Big Generator who have been around a while and again are worth seeing.
A post like this would never be complete without mentioning the excellent, and popular, and talented (cheque’s in the post Owen?) The King of Hearts Band. Owen, Adrian and the other guys will be playing next Sunday night in the Coal Quay Bar and I’ll be in there, so make yer way in if you’re around!
(Thanks Owen for the links!)
