Soulboys v Rudeboys

Thu, Oct 23, 2014

This Saturday night sees the return of Soulboys v Rudeboys in the Cellar bar on Eglinton Street. The brainchild of local vinyl junkie and DJ Dave Barry, the idea has been copied in clubs in Europe but it all started here in Galway. Salthill to be exact four years ago when the best soul and reggae DJs from all over Ireland and further afield pit their turntable skills against eachother. Mods, soulboys, Skinheads and regular punters all danced into the wee hours to some of the best music ever committed to vinyl.

The great crowd reaction and hardhitting dancefloor music urged more nights. The venue has moved into town with a basement setting that suits this 60s black music down to the underground. Thumping reggae bass drums and screeching soul horns just seem to sound better in this setting with its low ceiling and wooden dancefloor. The sound will be top notch too with the Funktion 1 sound system in full effect.
