Bayonets is a solo and occasionally collaborative venture created by musician and songwriter Vinnie Flynn. His style is a mix of alternative rock, indie , blues and folk.

Vinnie has worked with a number of musicians using his own material over the last three years resulting in three critically acclaimed E.Ps under the name “Red Moon Bayonets”.

Vinnie is also working with a music publishing company “Crucial Music” based in the US who are currently pitching one of his tracks to three prime time TV shows.

His new set hints at a beloved dark thread with an interesting twist. Every track hums with a sense of pure originality and haunting intrigue.
Vinnie has a string of gigs lined up for 2017 including some UK appearances.

Vinnie is earmarked to play at a number of music festivals over the summer and is also busy in the studio recording his new release set for launch in early 2017.
