you are looking for the something new and exciting this bank holiday weekend, then Emmett Maloney’s, Abbey Street, Ballina, is well worth a visit.
Emmett’s is one of the west’s most famous live music venue and this weekend is no different. Things will kick off tonight Friday, May 4 with Wacko and guests. This acoustic session is one for every musician in the area, rather than just coming in and listening to the band on stage, why not bring along a guitar or harmonica and join in with Wacko on one or two songs, or if you’ve got the voice, come up and sing a song with the band.
On Saturday from 9pm, it is the turn of Blackpenny who will bring you into the small hours of the morning.
On Sunday evening, it is a very special night in Emmett’s when local alternative rock band GSB will be launching their new album. Things will kick off at 9pm again with Stick Around first band on stage followed by The Alps, before the main event when GSB rock you into bank holiday Monday.
Apart from the live music, Emmett’s is also home to a real music lovers’ jukebox, but this is no chart jukebox, it is for serious music lovers and will provide the perfect soundtrack to any evening. The big gigs keep coming and the following Saturday night, May 12, Christina Forde, ‘The Mamma of Soul’, will be live in Emmett’s again.
