Bands on Friday

Dark Town Strutters

Hot Swing jazz from the 1930s and 40s.

The lyrical swing and syncopation of classic American Swing meets the rhythmic pulse of French Gypsy jazz. The Darktown Strutters feed your soul with uptempo goodtime swing music and heartbreakingly blue ballads. The quartet can be seen regularly in their home city of Cork, and have featured in the Cork Jazz Festival for several years running. The band has also played all around Ireland and Europe.

Gary Baus (USA, alto saxophone), Bren Ó Ruaidh (jazz guitar), Pat Barrett (double bass) and Niall Dennehy (drums).

Skazz – Ireland

This five piece are the embodiment of the ska movement starting out as a swing and jazz outfit and converting in early 2007 to pure ska vibes.In keeping with their jazz roots, Skazz have chosen the original Jamaican scene Ska of the 1960s – when Caribbean mento and calypso first met American jazz and rhythm and blues. Fans of the 2 Tone sound of the late 1970s will feel at home on the dancefloor with the added bonus of an education in pre-reggae/rocksteady tempos and cross rhythms.

Having already shared stages with the likes of The Skatalites, Prince Buster, The Pioneers, Syramip, Dennis Alcapone, Winston Francis and Delroy Williams, and with dates this year including the Cork Jazz Festival, Electric Picnic and Waterford Spraoi and Bray Jazz Festival, this promises to be a very special band.

Getting everyone into the skanival mood, Skazz will be skanking the weekend away in style. This lively Clare band have appeared at venues all over Ireland, and with rave reviews everywhere have acquired a huge following. Ska! Ska! Ska! Skandalous Skazz will be joined by a host of musicians to have you all moonstompin.
