This just in from Speakeasy Central:-
Next Thursday, March 11th, SpeakeasyJazz Limerick would like to invite you to enjoy the sounds of Blue Noise~Steve Hanks, Joe O Callaghan, Fiach O Brien and Barry O Donoghue.
Steve Hanks fronted ‘InsErt NAme hErE’, with Bart Kiely, Joe O’Callaghan, Dave Irwin and Bandi Varady last April -SpeakeasyJazz’s opening night at The Rowing club- and ’tis about time he revisited!
Having graduated from Leeds College of Music he picked up sticks (Flute, Sax and any other pipe he could get his hands on!) and settled in Ireland bringing his music with him where ere he ventured. He has been teaching music over at The Limerick Jazz Workshops for around two years now and when he’s not flying around the country playing music, he can be seen Jamming with his students in Bentleys on a Tuesday night after workshops, you may have seen him hold the floor up there last Sunday at the Love Haiti fundraiser with young Andreas Varady.
Returning on the night will be Joe O Callaghan. Joe trained guitar with Ronan Guilfoyle and is a member of the Limerick Jazz house trio and is also a teacher at The Limerick Jazz Workshops, his nimble talent is well known to Jazzer’s in Limerick!
Fiach O Brien~Drums and Barry O Donoghue~Bass, both hail from the Newpark music center in Dublin and can be seen introducing original music devised by the next generation of Irish Jazz muso’s at Newpark nights, Tuesdays at The Twisted Pepper in Dublin until March 20th.
This fearless bunch of Jazz cats will be performing original and improvised compositions and will be joined later in the evening by DJ Leon, a master of scratch who will add an interesting element to the Hard Bop Fision rendered by the band.
This one promises to be a hard-boppin, swingin and funky show!
Thurs March 11th
