THE FULL Disconauts line is back with DJs Padraic and Keith, set to be joined by percussionist Mark Logan, trumpeter Ben Edwards, saxman Steve Hamilton, and bass tromboneist Mike Kearsey.
The Disconauts play upstairs at Kelly’s Bar on Friday October 22 at 10pm. Expect a night of lowdown dirty house, sleazy disco, and party anthems.
“It’s really difficult for us all to be free at the same time for gigs,” says Mark Logan, “especially with Mike, Steve and Ben based in the UK and all so busy with their different projects. It’s been two years since we last played together as a six-piece.”
Ben Edwards has been on a non-stop European tour with chart-topping Paolo Nutini as well as touring with Basement Jaxx, Mumford & Sons, and Natalie Williams.
Steve Hamilton has spent a lot of time this year touring with Latin jazz maestro Snowboy while trombone player Mike Kearsey has been touring and performing with Madness and Tom Jones.
That said, the brassmen are looking forward to teaming up with Padraic, Keith, and Mark again and all six are relishing the gig at Kelly’s.
“It’s not like work really,” says Padraic. “We’re all good mates so we love these rare chances to play together and I think it shows as we tend to relax and really enjoy ourselves on stage which transfers to the audience too. A gig in our hometown is always important to us and we’re really looking forward to doing our first live show in Kellys.”
Admission is €5.
