Bands on Friday

Riff Raft

Guitarist and singer, Bren Ó Ruaidh, came back from a trip of a lifetime to New Orleans full of inspiration. Having played with some of the best musicians in the world, and experiencing the pure joy of jazz in the Big Easy, he has brought that magic back to Cork with his new band, Riff Raft.

All sorts of songs from Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Django Reinhardt and more, with some bebop and a few contemporary songs thrown into the mix. This band will get you on the dancefloor and you’ll never want to leave. Get on the raft and party!
