Sea Pinks don’t know when to stop. A band who seem to eat, sleep, and breathe music, the Northern Irish group have almost insane levels of productivity.

  • Recently stepping back into the studio – y’know, just to see what happens – they emerged with a clutch of perfectly formed noise pop jams.

    “We’re a singles band hell-bent on making albums,” says singer Neil Brogan. “We went in for a couple of days. Then it was a couple more and a couple more, and by autumn we had about 16 songs recorded, which we eventually pared down to ten”.

    New album ‘Watercourse’ is the result. The band’s sixth album in seven years, it drops on May 26th.
    ‘Into Nowhere’ is a taut return, all muscle and sinew with Sea Pinks applying a minimalist mindset to their vintage indie pop.

The Jazz Lab Jam session kicks off early from 7:30pm downstairs in the Grand Social.

  • Cormac O’Brien’s Gamerz fuse elements of Americana, electronic music, free improv and some old skool jazz swagger. An exciting new band featuring some of the finest musicians to come out of Ireland and the UK in the last decade, featuring rising star, UK pianist Kit Downes, the quartet reflect both the jazz quartet tradition and an expansive modern aesthetic.

    South African saxophonist Chris Engels’s BigSpoon, our Irish act for 12 Points 2017 in Denmark, also features  a cohort of Ireland’s leading improvisers and electro-sonic explorers to create mesmerising jazz for the 21st century. With influences from experimental pioneers Jaga Jazzist & Flying Lotus to Weather Report, BigSpoon deliver genre defying goodness with organic heart and electronic soul.

    Mining diverse influences from jazz, hardcore punk and contemporary classical music, Belfast natives Robocobra Quartet sound  utterly unique, with a no-holds-barred live approach, complete with howling drummer-vocalist and menacing saxophones, they have been described as  are a “must-see” live act. Think “Fugazi meets Mingus.” – Drowned in Sound

    ‘Round about midnight on Saturday at Down With Jazz We Three Kings take to the decks; Hipdrop Records co-founder, Keith Fennell, 70’s Funk & Soul specialist and South American connoisseur, James Keating, and top dollar jazz drummer and Dublin’s hip-hop’s premier beat man, Dennis Cassidy ensure you are in good (jazz) hands into the wee hours.

  • Continuing in the jazz vocal tradition, internationally acclaimed jazz/blues singer Honor Heffernan presents ‘The Whistling Girl’, a unique show from Heffernan and composer Trevor Knight featuring a darkly sardonic body of work inspired by the poetry of Dorothy Parker, fusing ‘dirty’-cabaret, electronic-vaudeville, rock and jazz.

    Cork trombonist and composer Paul Dunlea performs with his super septet utilizing some of Ireland’s finest improvising musicians to produce melodic and groove-driven music fusing influences of Jazz harmony, pop, funk and R&B.

    Down With Jazz is moving indoors in 2017 but keeping that jazz temperature high at The Grand Social Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th June. Weekend tickets are a steal at €25 with Daily tickets just €15.
