Republic Get Loose at RedFM!















I love these guys. They are one of my favourite bands and I love the way they have got the soul and funk and hip-hop vibes running through their music. They are capable of blowing the United Stated wide open with their music and if they get the breaks it could happen very soon. In years to come the 50 or so listeners invited to this private gig at RedFM will most probaly be talking about how they had a private audience with the Republic of Loose. And boy did they rock. Normally radio gigs are quite reserved and laid-back but this could have been a proper show in itself! Some of the lucky listeners hung around after and I invited a few in the studio for a sconce-sorry to Sarah for the pic (she is not happy with it!) By the way, their gig at the savoy a few days later rocked aswell. A great band!

I've also held down long term residencies at clubs around Ireland such as Brown Sugar at the Kitchen in Dublin, U-Turn at Ri Ra in Dublin, Jazz Juice at the GPO in Galway, Thompson Garage in Belfast, the Soul Clinic, Dee-Bop, Meltdown and Mo Bounce in Limerick and i've played abroad in the United States and the U.K. on numerous occasions. I also write a music column for the Evening Echo and i'm a regular contributor to the U.K.'s Blues and Soul, the longest running black music magazine in the world.
