Whelan’s Newest Music Night





Whelanslive is proud to present a celebration of new Irish music. Every Tuesday will see the upstairs venue play host to a series of the best of new music this country has to offer.Three hand-picked bands showcase their originality, performance and amazingly fresh songwriting skills. It is a great opportunity to see the next round of Irelands unsung and unsigned.


Bloody Mondays.

Bloody Mondays are a three piece alternative rock band formed in Dublin in late 2009 and consisting of brothers Ciaran (Bass,Vocals) Kev (Drums) and Alan (Guitar,Vocals). The Mondays sound has been described as “a mix of 60’s Music, Punk and Brit Pop”. Influenced by bands such as Blur, The Smiths, Stone Roses, Oasis and The Beatles, the band aim at unleashing their own style of catchy guitar music on the Irish scene.

Bloody Mondays have played various venues in Dublin like Captain Americas, The Sugar Club and The Village. We recently recorded a studio demo “Parklane” and are currently working on our first EP which we hope to have out early this summer. Let the revolution begin!

Formed at the end of 2011 they have been very busy playing venues throughout Dublin as well as gigs in Galway, Meath, Cavan and Kerry. The band is currently working on recording their debut EP which is due for release later this year. Their sound has been described as rootsy, dark and authentic and with the ability to bring the listener on a journey by creating atmosphere and imagary their live show is one to be enjoyed!”
