Galway Street Club, the much-loved troupe of busking musicians, make a long-awaited return to the Róisín Dubh stage this St. Patrick's Day!
After bursting onto the scene in 2016, the band of international buskers from Galway spent four years performing almost continuously at home and abroad on every stage, street corner and dive bar imaginable!
In November 2019 the band decided to take a 6 month break in order to recharge, refresh and come back with new material and a new live show. With a string of gigs and festivals lined up for 2020, these well-made plans came to a halt on the eve of their first show back in the Roisin Dubh in March 2020. Needless to say, that 6 month break then became a two-and-a-half year break.
With all that Covid nonsense seemingly behind us, the band are not only refreshed but bursting at the seams to get back on stage and will be doing just on St. Patrick's Day, playing their now traditional Double Header in the Róisín Dubh, Galway.
"What I missed most about playing is experiencing the energy I share with my friends and the crowd while performing" says Laura, the ukulele player of the band, whereas Jonny on the mandolin alludes to the Covid weight we are all familiar with! "The thing I missed was getting a sweaty workout on stage"... and it certainly is a sweaty workout!
"Unlike so many of our performers, GSC is ready and more than willing to put their mind, heart, body, soul, and balls into every note, which puts their own idiosyncratic spin on their set.” Nitelife.ie.
Renowned for their high-energy, chaotic live set, the bare-chested busking riot are ready to melt faces again! Galway Street Club will celebrate their return to live music with two concerts in the Róisín Dubh on March 17th at 5pm and 8pm. Tickets available here.Published on Updated on
