    THE LEISURE SOCIETY

    ^ Upstairs ^

    Nick Hemming grew up in Burton-on-Trent. The Leisure Society was born when Nick decided to share a London flat with fellow Burton-on-Trent exile and multi-instrumentalist / producer, Christian Hardy.

    The years following that initial meet have seen the band release 4 critically acclaimed albums. Touring extensively throughout, the The Leisure Society have graced the stage at two Meltdown Festivals (firstly, Richard Thompson’s, then Ray Davies’). They packed a tent at Glastonbury. Brian Eno declared himself a fan, and the band have been nominated for two Ivor Novello awards.

    In 2016, the band was derailed by the break-up of Nick and long-term partner, flautist Helen Whitaker. Retreating to their roots, Nick and Christian left the UK to tour Europe as a duo, then another 3 weeks touring Italy with violinist Mike Siddell in tow.

    New songs emerged throughout this period and developed in intimate venues, hotel rooms and moonlit courtyards. In 2017, the band’s album delivery deadline loomed, but rather than rush out a new record, they decided to dedicate another 12 months perfecting it in studios and rented houses across the UK and France.  What results is certainly their most ambitious and diverse record to date, charting the journey from heartbreak, to bitterness, to hope, in 57 lavish minutes.

    Leisure Society will play Upstairs at Whelan’s on Thursday 19th September with tickets from €14.95 incl booking fee on sale Wednesday 1st May at 10am from Ticketmaster

Both bands performed at Whelan’s Ones To Watch early in 2019 and have gone on to have further success. Some highlights include Greyface’s recent performance at ‘Wacken Open Air’ in Germany while Makings put in a huge performance in Phoenix Park for Youbloom @ Bloom In The Park 2019.

    MAKINGS

    www.makingsmusic.com

    Makings are a six-piece outfit with a unique sound that weaves between electro, rock & rap. So far in 2019 they have performed at Vantastival, Youbloom @ Bloom In The Park, Oakfest, Whelan’s Ones To Watch, Midnight City and have toured Germany and UK. In February 2019 they launched their EP, which contains the singles ‘Blackhole’, ‘Pulse’ and ‘Beck N Call’, the first three tracks to be produced with Grammy-Award winning mixer Jim Lowe (Stereophonics). Since the release of their debut album ‘Cognition’ in 2016, the band’s image & sound has continued to evolve to where they are quickly becoming the go-to band for venues & festivals that require an energetic floor-filling performance. With many more releases in the pipeline, the group expect 2019 to be their biggest year yet!

    GREYFACE

    www.greyfaceband.com

    An Alternative group based in Dublin city. The bands philosophy is loosely based on the universal Freudian/Jungian ideas of the inner shadow. Each member of the group names and paints this inner being most people choose to ignore, or reject for its undesirability. The ‘shadow’ is the unknown within each human being. The group refer to their shadow as their ‘GREYFACE’ taking these ideas to the stage in a theatrical and explosive way.

    Through high-energy performance, the band perform a stylized mix of music branching from hip-hop, to rock, to electronica. The group performs very regularly, having opened for ‘As It Is’ in The Academy Dublin, and performing at Wacken Open Air in Germany.

    MEGAN O’NEILL

    ^ Upstairs ^

    Amanda St John is a Soul/blues/Americana singer songwriter from Co. Antrim. She received rave reviews and worldwide airplay of her debut album ‘Grow’, which was released in 2016. With comparisons to Dusty Springfield and Imelda May St John has been described as a ‘head-turning vocalist with serious song writing prowess… a sensational artist’ [Visit Dublin]. In May 2018 she became the first Irish independent artist in history to record in the legendary FAME Studios, Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Some of the most iconic artists in the world have recorded there, including Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Wilson Pickett, Percy Sledge and Solomon Burke. Amanda’s songs and performance style have been heavily influenced by these artists thus it was a natural progression for her to follow in their footsteps and capture that authentic sound in FAME Studios. Backed by a 5 piece band (which includes St John’s main collaborators Paul Tierney and Michael Mormecha) this gig is part of her Irish and UK album release tour and is sure to be a great night of celebration!

    Dublin Blues Cartel formed a year and half ago, after a long association. They began playing every Monday in the Leeson Lounge, playing mostly a version of New Orleans R’n’B with a classic rock twist, sandwiched with swing, Rock’n’Roll, Soul, Funk, Blues and rap of all eras.Their sets consists of radical reworkings of well known R’n’B standards which segue into lengthy improvisations that are one minute, blues jazz crescendo, the next a funk dervish, one minute a pyschedelic freak out, next a country boogie twist, the next a dark ascension of Wagnerian majesty.

    Featuring some the best musicians Ireland has ever produced, Dublin Blue cartel are:

    James delaney (James has played with Sharon Shannon, Van Morrison, Paul Brady, Chuck Berry, Andrew Strong)

    Pat Farrell: Lead Guitar (The Business, Red Peters). Pat had shared stages with B.B. King, Jeff Healy, John Primer and Carlos Johnson

    John Quearney: Bass (Donovan, Heavy Waits, The Business, Left right n Centre,)

    Noel Bridgeman: Drums. Noel was a founding member of Skid Row, one of the most important Irish rock bands, whose members included Gary Moore, Phill Lynott and Brush Shields. He has also recorded with Van Morrison, Steve Earle, Sharon Shannon and has played with Mary Black and many other legendary Irish artists.

    Mick Pyro is a member of Republic of Loose who have had three top ten albums in Ireland, one reaching number 2.

    Spiral Stairs has announced his first ever Irish show at Whelan’s on 26 September 2019. The announcement follows the release of the Pavement co-founder Scott Kannberg’s third album as Spiral Stairs – the critically acclaimed We Wanna Be Hyp-No-Tized on Domino Records. Tickets €20 plus booking fee go on sale this Thursday 4 April from Selective Memory (www.selectivememory.ie) and Ticketbooth (www.ticketbooth.eu).

    Kannberg’s indie-rock legacy continues with Spiral Stairs following on from renowned musical projects Pavement – one of the most influential and distinctive bands to emerge from the American underground in the early ‘90s – and Preston School of Industry.

    Scott Kannberg’s solo career proper began with the first Spiral Stairs album The Real Feel back in 2009, and after taking a lengthy break following Pavement’s triumphant global reunion tour in 2010 he returned in 2017 with his acclaimed sophomore solo effort Doris & The Daggers.

    For his feelgood third solo album We Wanna Be Hyp-No-Tized, Pavement co-founder Scott Kannberg – best known to the musical world as Spiral Stairs – concocted some of the most fun and accessible music of his storied career by expanding his musical repertoire, in the process embracing some sounds and artists which for some reason or other slipped through the cracks as he took alternative rock to the world during his action-packed youth.

    Aiken Promotions proudly presents Amy Montgomery live at Whelan’s (Upstairs), 26th September 2019.

    The first thing that grabs your attention about Irish singer songwriter Amy Montgomery (apart from her Bohemian look) is her raw and beautiful voice honed from relentless busking throughout Ireland. Her vocals seem to channel the spirit of Janis Joplin and Grace Slick whilst also acknowledging her all time favourite Alanis Morissette.

    Working with well know NI producer/songwriter/musician Michael Mormecha (Drums) and Zach Trouton (Keys), the threesome deliver a fresh, edgy and original live performance.

    Meeting at school in 2012, and assuming their current line up in 2016, INHALER is a Dublin four piece rock and roll band. Finally finished school in Summer 2018, the guys spent their time writing and rehearsing and gigging around Ireland, with occasional slots in the UK.

    Their debut single ‘I Want You’ is included on the 2017 “This Is Garageland – Volume 1”, an album showcasing up and coming Irish acts, while Hot Press magazine featured INHALER in their “Hot for 2018” lost.

    Having completed the Leaving Certificate in June 2018, they continue to fine-tune their live set, and focus on recording and releasing a growing repertoire of their own material. They featured in the line-up for their first festivals (Indiependence and EP) in 2018, and sold out their first headliner in Whelan’s Dublin on Sept 8th. In the final part of 2018, they have supported the Sherlocks, Blossoms, the Coronas, Picturehouse and toured with The Academic,

    Inhaler featured in last year’s lineup for Dublin’s New Years Festival.
