Whelanslive.com is proud to bring you The Midnight Hour. Showcasing the best new talent in Ireland.
The Tightrope Walkers’ debut single Fat Men Have To Eat was recorded with Ingmar Kiang (Suede, Julian Cope) and released by legendary label Reekus Records. Named as one of the highlights of Ones To Watch 2014 and chosen for both this year’s Youbloom and Galway Fringe festivals, they are currently recording their first EP with Ger McDonnell (U2, Manic Street Preachers, Martha Wainwright). Their performance at Whelans this Friday night will be their last gig of 2014 and is sure to draw an expectant crowd ahead of a busy new year for the rising Alt.Rock quartet.
“Every so often an artist emerges whose music draws so many influences and spans so many genres that they defy classification. This often leads critics into a game of musical pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey. Just close your eyes, throw out your reference and hope it hits the right spot. Young Dubliner Keith Moss and his band The Tightrope Walkers are exactly this kind of act” – DAILY MIRROR
