The band have been getting rave reviews and glowing recommendations across the music press.

‘It’s Nice’ was chosen as tune of the week across the RTE stations. Nialler 9 selected ‘It’s Nice’ among 12 new songs you should hear.

The influential God is in the TV review in the UK described the band as “Like a cross between Lady’s Bridge era Richard Hawley and the slacker pop of Weezer’.

‘It’s Nice’ featured as Music Video of the Week on Music Talks in Australia. The footage was shot locally including some cool scenes at a venue in Monasterevin.

Expect a warm welcome from this band at Bergin’s and look forward to a great evening of music. Not to be missed!

It’s a free gig with no admission charge out the back in Andy’s so as The Glimmermen say, come along and feel the love.
