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 Ireland’s unsung and unsigned.
THE BOXING PLOT
The Boxing Plot formed 3 or 4 years ago when a group of friends decided that since they weren’t playing sports or doing homework, they may as well be playing music. After countless hours spent practising, drinking tea and eating nachos, The Boxing Plot emerged ready to take on the world, no longer the pale, innocent boys they once were. Maurice “The Heels” Healy and Oscar Jay L’Esnard hold down the low end, providing the beats and the bass lines respectfully. Oilver “Le Monde” Kelly and The Fox shred some serious axe, while The Fox’s lupine croon adds a little spice to the mix. They now
record and play live when the mood takes, and tweet a lot.
Originally hailing from Kenya Cliff Masheti has been performing ever since his teens. His journey began as a former frontman of The Impressionists a Hiphop funk band that won the Blastbeat national battle of the bands competition in 2006 beating over 100 other bands from around the country to claim the coveted prize of a recording contract. This resulted in an EP being recorded in the prestigious ‘Grouse lodge’ studios. That same here he played in Oxygen in the redbull break in tent. As part of the band he represented Ireland in Johannesburg, South Africa He has opened for distinguished acts such as Hypnotic brass ensemble, during a period which the band had a residency in the popular venue The Pavilion in Cork. Among the venues he has played in are The Cork Opera House, The Savoy (Cork), The Half Moon (Cork), Vicar Street (Dublin), Radio City (Dublin) The Button Factory (Dublin), The Tripod (Dublin), The Black Box (Galway) and The National Conference Centre (Johannesburg, South Africa). Following the break up of the band last year he spent the year working on his first solo project ‘The Audition’ which was released in the summer and has already spawned two singles , one with an accompanying video and has received positive feedback for its diverse sound merging different genres such as reggae soul and blues to create a solid debut.
