    Abuse Your Illusion

    Abuse Your Illusion are an experienced and energetic 6 piece Dublin based band formed in early 2014.

    The band play Guns N Roses classics from the iconic Appetite For Destruction, Lies, Use Your Illusion I & Use Your Illusion II albums.

    Delivering a high volume, high octane Guns N Roses show that is interfused with the iconic ballads and the little extras, recreating the magic that will take you back to the early 90s GNR shows, typically running 2-3 hours .

    The bands is focussed on attention to detail ensuring that all the classic Guns N Roses tunes are delivered with passion, energy and accuracy with front man Neil Bailey providing the all important Axl Rose swagger and attitude.

    Pounding rhythm is provided by Christian Stynes (Steven Adler) supported by Paul Ryan (Duff) pumping out bass from his 80s fenders and trusty Gallien & Krueger amp that made Duff’s sound famous.

    Manning the Marshalls and wielding the iconic Les Pauls are Trev Mooney (Izzy) & Dan Cassoni (Slash).

    The line up is completed by the magic of Conn Rogers (Dizzy Reid) on keys delivering those classic melodies, harmonies and backing vocals.

    Stomptown Brass

    Following a blistering national tour last Autumn, 8-piece Urban Street Funk band STOMPTOWN BRASS are back with a brand new show to kick off the year!

    Since their inception, Stomptown Brass have shocked and delighted audiences across Ireland and abroad. Through countless festival appearances and themed shows, they have built and maintained a status as one of the country’s most unique and dynamic ensemble acts. Blending cinematic soundscapes, driving rhythms and groovy drops, the impressive band line-up of two Drummers, two Trombones, two Trumpets, one Sax and a big dirty Tuba are known to put on a serious racket to get any crowd on their feet.

    When the band aren’t performing raucous slots at festivals such as Electric Picnic, Another Love Story, Kaleidoscope, Sea Sessions, Indiependence or Longitude, they’re known to create unique and spectacular theatrical productions to captivate fresh audiences.

    In ‘Requiem for the Truth’, the band held a New Orleans jazz funeral for the truth, selling out back-to-back shows at Dublin Fringe, Norway Fringe, Cork Jazz and Waterford Imagine Arts festivals, along with two nights at Dublin’s Pepper Canister Church, each night parading the truth in its coffin to a location nearby for a street party.

    With ‘Curious Eyes & Ears’, the band produced a multi-faceted kids show that demonstrated the foundations of music theory in a novel and interactive way, after hosting a national kids competition to perform with the band on stage at Meeting House Square in Temple Bar, Dublin.

    STOMPTOWN BRASS are back to kick off the campaign for their debut album (set to drop in 2021) with a headline show in the newly renovated OPIUM in Dublin. With even more drums and a brand new set of cinematic brassy tunes, this is not a show to miss!

    The Spitfires

    Movement, progression and utilising opportunities have been ever-present in The Spitfires’ camp since their emergence back in 2012 and what a journey that has been thus far…

    Three self-financed albums, a diary logged with live shows and an ever-rabid fanbase continues to see the youthful trio looking forward on their self-built wave of positivity…”it’s not where you’ve been that matters, it’s where you’re heading that’s important” – for The Spitfires that means right now with imminent new album, Life Worth Living.

    It’s release marks the start of a relationship with the similarly minded Acid Jazz Records whilst realising their hopes and aspirations both on a creative and personal level. The sound of a band who have made significant strides artistically, absorbing influences, inspired by events and inspirations before melding into their own forms and sounds. Whether within its less frenetic and introspective moments or its more provocative outings, Life Worth Living is chock full of tunes, an album that is forthright and self-assured.

    Having amassed a loyal support, the band have tasted chart success with their previous releases emerging with their own political, acute social commentary. The impassioned rhetoric has prompted support slot invitations from amongst others, Paul Weller and The Specials. Emboldened with genuine passion and pop nous, this fiercely independent trio look set to break out to a wider audience with Life Worth Living

    A diverse mixture of unadulterated joy and melancholy, laughter and tears, frustration and tranquility it mirrors what turbulent times we live in but at its heart is the most important message; a sense of hope that things and events will improve and we all need to aspire to the pertinent title of the album. A message that is important , irrespective of time and place no more so than now. Life Worth Living, available on all formats is released on 19th June through Acid Jazz Records.

    Rad stays rad. A few ideas are timeless. Stoner is Brant Bjork (guitar/vocals), Nick Oliveri (bass/vocals) and Ryan Gut (drums), and from flowing jams to all-out punker blasts, they know what they’re doing.

    It ain’t anybody’s first time at the dance, and you don’t call your band Stoner if you’ve never heard the word before. Stoner, however straight-ahead their moniker, encompass varied styles and the songwriting of Bjork and Oliveri – both founders of Kyuss, also Mondo Generator, Ché, Fu Manchu, Bloodcot, and more between them. Atop the classic-style swing and flow from Gut (also of Bjork’s solo band), Stoner keep it casual and wear the name as only those who helped create the sound could.

    Donny Benét

    Working Out.
    These songs represent just a small taste of the enigma that is Donny Benét.

    Hailed and panned by critics as “Prince on a serious budget cut” Donny Benét is best described as the favourite nephew to Uncles Giorgio Moroder, Alan Vega and Michael McDonald.

    Residing in Sydney, Australia, Benét writes, performs and records entirely by himself at the renowned Donnyland Studios. Vintage synthesisers and drum machines are used exclusively to present Benét’s views on life, love and relationships through the power of song.

    Benét’s 2011 breakthrough album “Don’t Hold Back”, confused and intrigued many, establishing him as a cult figure in the Australian music scene. The piece de resistance came in the form of the 2018 album The Don. Donny’s latest singles Second Dinner and Girl of My Dreams provide a small taste of his recently released and highly anticipated album Mr Experience.

    A breakthrough set at the Pohoda Festival in 2018 led to constant international touring throughout 2018/19 with Donny building new audiences across Europe and the US.

    Don is joined by his band of professionals, The Donny Benét Show band when performing live.

    “Jeffrey Lebowski, it is “The Dude”, Donny Benét, it is “The Don”. Quite simply.”
