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 BOO BOX
The Boo Box are a high octane, full throttle, funk rock ensemble, forged deep in the mountains and foothills of Co.Wicklow. A hard hitting, jam based, 3 piece with influences ranging from Zeppelin to King Tubby via The Chilli Peppers.
The Boo Box bring an insatiable energy to their live show as well as in studio, something which is quickly becoming their trademark. Following a hectic year of gigs and festival the band are now in the process of writing and recording their first official E.P planned for release early in the new year.
With a whole host of performances lined up before then and their debut album set for release next summer, the year of The Boo Box is upon us.
NightBlind formed in 2011. The aim of the band is to write and play original sounding ROCK music drawing heavy influence from the music of rock bands of the late 80’s, early 90’s and some from today. Then, when we have the rock sorted we throw in bits from other genres such as reggae, ska, metal, blues etc to make it our own.
The band has recently been in the studio recording some songs which are set to appear on an upcoming compilation album release by Esente Music Group. http://
We’ve gigged around Dublin and Meath in venues such as The Industry (Mezz), Blitz Sessions (Swords), Sheebeen, The International Bar, Captains’ Live(Blanchardstown), Beggy’s(Navan) etc.
Late Train’s sound is fused by their variety of backgrounds- from Jay’s time in the Californian rock scene, Kev’s experience in Canada, Luca’s hard-rock influences, Bruno’s Brazilian-jazz, to Reo’s funk rock style.
The band steadily focus on shaping their songs, playing gigs both acoustically and as a full band and building a reputation on the Dublin music scene. 2012 is set to see Late Train take hold of the reigns, mics, guitar picks and drumsticks, to rock a venue near you.
