BONA FIDE FEDERATION
+ Arrow in the Sky and Champagne Animal.
Hailing from Cork, Bona Fide Federation are hitting Wexford St. on Sunday the 27th of February for their first Headline show in Dublin. The band is a movement of fresh new music with a line up of drums, cello, piano, bass and vocals. Bona Fide Federation launched themselves into the Irish music scene with their debut E.P ‘Night Train’ in late April 2010. ‘Night Train’ has been described as “one of the best E.P’s to come out of Cork in the last two years” (The Evening Echo). In June the band played the Sea Sessions festival in Bundoran, winning the Battle of The Bands and were singled out by the judges as “a breath of fresh air, their pure originality making them stand out from all the other acts”.
In October Bona Fide Federation supported O Emperor on their ‘Hither Thither’ album tour. The band also supported Fred on their Irish Tour in December.
Currently, the group are focusing on recording their second E.P which is due to be launched later this year.
