Whelan’s Upstairs

Hailing from Galway City, Ol’ Times is a classic rock outfit that’s on a mission to bring rock n roll back to the forefront of music. The band draws inspiration from legendary acts like Led Zeppelin, The Doors, and The Rolling Stones while putting their own spin on the genre to create a sound that’s fresh and exciting.

Comprised of Gabriele, Manuel, Kai, Colm, and Finn, Ol’ Times is a multinational band that has been developing their unique sound and energetic live performances since their chance meeting in February 2019. With a mix of acoustic and electric guitars, percussion, keyboards, and driving ambition, they deliver a sound that seamlessly blends the old and new.

Since forming, Ol’ Times has played their way through Europe, leaving their mark on cities like London, Lisbon, Madrid, Florence, Bologna, and Edinburgh. They’ve gathered a dedicated global following on social media and amassed fans from around the world, thanks to their exciting and unforgettable performances.

With a sold-out show at the Roisin Dubh and an acclaimed performance at Whelan’s Dublin under their belt, Ol’ Times is gearing up for their next big move. They’re currently working on new material that they plan to release in the coming year and will be heading on an Old-School Rock n Roll tour of the UK and Europe.

Keep an eye out for Ol’ Times, as they’re sure to continue making waves with their fiery cocktail of heart-racing and intensely grooving sounds that’s putting rock n roll back on the map.
