THE PHENOMENON that is Steven Sharpe will be taking over the Róisín Dubh in his guise as band leader, Led Zeppelin tribute singer, and comedy/musical team member on Friday April 24 at 9pm.
The show will be headlined by Steven, the Galway Advertiser’s Galway Solo Artist of the Year 2014, with his band The Broke Straight Boys - David Shaughnessy (My Fellow Sponges ), Shane O’Malley (No Stairway ), and solo artist/guitarist Dylan Murphy. The band play a hard hitting mixd of Zeppelin influenced blues stompers, alongside dextrous acoustic numbers. Lyrically the songs deal with contemporary gay life and issues, in a manner both thought provoking and witty.
Support is from Led Zeppelin tribute band No Stairway, of which Steven is lead singer, so expect Zep classics like ‘Black Dog’ and ‘Whole Lotta Love’. Opening the night are comedy/music collective The Gingerbeard House - Steven Sharpe, Steve Bennett, Tracy Bruen, Tara Stacey, Dylan Murphy, and Liam Doherty.
Recording and samples will be taken from the show and used on Steven and The Boys’ debut studio album and all funds raised will go towards recording the album.
Tickets are €8 through www.roisindubh.net, or €10 at the door.
