This Saturday night, April 26, sees Hi5 Orchestra take to the stage for their debut live performance in the salubrious surroundings of John Daly’s bar, Mullingar.
The band is a new live project from local DJ/producer Keith Marshall. Keith has been producing funk and disco-fuelled nuggets aimed at the dance floor for the past year.
His debut release ‘Night People’ led to him getting signed to English label That’s what we do, and hitting the number two spot on the Juno download charts last September. For the live shows Keith has enlisted the help of friends Ricky Byrne on drums and Paul Kiernan of The Booka Brass band on trumpet to add an extra melodic and percussive element to his DJ set which results in an explosive and infectious mix of funky disco to keep your feet shuffling on the dance floor.
A second release, ‘Your Game’, is due out this summer on London label Midnight Riot Records along with an appearance at Sea Sessions surf and music festival in June. Support DJ on the night is local hero Dylan O’Neill. Music starts at 9.30pm and admission is free.
