THE DUBLIN BLUES CARTEL
11pm til late – FREE ENTRY*
Dublin Blues Cartel play live from the window at Whelan’s every Sunday. They mostly play a version of New Orleans R’n’B with a classic rock twist, sandwiched with swing, Rock’n’Roll, Soul, Funk, Blues and rap of all eras.Their sets consists of radical reworkings of well known R’n’B standards which segue into lengthy improvisations that are one minute, blues jazz crescendo, the next a funk dervish, one minute a psychedelic freak out, next a country boogie twist, the next a dark ascension of Wagnerian majesty.
Featuring some the best musicians Ireland, Dublin Blue Cartel are fronted by Mick Pyro, a member of Republic of Loose who have had three top ten albums in Ireland, one reaching number 2. Mick has supported U.2., The Roots, Ian Brown, The Neville Brothers, Guns n Roses, Snow Patrol and the New York Dolls.
