THE MIDNIGHT Union Band come from Kilkenny, but it might as well be Kentucky with a sound steeped in Americana, folk, and roots music.
Inspired by Bob Dylan, Neil Young, The Band, and Creedence Clearwater Revival, the quintet are Shane Joyce (vocals, harmonica, guitar ); Peter Flynn (piano, mandolin, guitars ); Cian Doolan (mandolin, guitar ); Brian McGrath (bass ); and John Wallace (drums, vocals ).
The band released their debut EP, Behind the Truth, in 2013 and have just finished recording their debut album, due for release in September.
The Midnight Union Band play Monroe’s Backstage Bar on Friday July 18 at 10pm with free admission until 11pm. See www.monroes.ie
