Mark Geary & Band @ Hot Spot

Doors 8.00pm Show 9pmTickets €14 – €17

Dublin-native Mark Geary is a celebrated musician who began his career more than 20 years ago. In 1992, Mark bought a one-way ticket to New York City and spent several years honing his craft playing the local circuit in the East Village which included numerous appearances at the acclaimed Sin-é cafe with other upcoming artists including friend Jeff Buckley.  During that time, Mark’s songwriting skills and engaging live performances garnered him a dedicated audience, the respect and esteem of his peers, and a reputation as one of the finest songsmiths of his generation.

Mark is described as a “quintessential singer-songwriter” and his records have been hailed as encapsulating both boisterous joy and gentle, delicate moments that endear themselves to the listener and evoke comparisons to artists such as Van Morrison, John Lennon, Elliot Smith and Richard Thompson.  His body of work includes 4 studio albums, 2 live recordings and collaborations with a number of artists including the 2013 release of a charity version of his song ‘Christmas Biscuits’ with friend Glen Hansard in aid of St Vincent De Paul, in Ireland.

Mark has also lent his talents to the visual arts scoring several films including “Loggerheads” (2005), “Steel City” (2006) and TriBeCa Film Festival favourite, “Sons of Perdition” (2010) as well as having songs featured in episodes of the TV shows “Bones” and “One Tree Hill”.  Mark is accompanied by Ruth O’Mahoney, Eamonn DeBarra and Sean Regan.  Dandelion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7VS60jHVmk

Open Trad Night - Danns Bar @ Danns Bar

For the past 15 years every Tuesday evening, Danns bar has been the location for great session music.  As the night progresses, different musicians arrive, and the music suddenly takes a left turn, down through the Ring of Kerry, before detouring back up through the Burren before a quick trip over to Nashville.

“We’re open to everyone and anything,” says Hughie Browne, the man with the whip, and the keeper of the flame for all these years. “It’s what makes it interesting not only for those listening but, perhaps more importantly, for us. We’re not here to play the same old songs week after week. We’re out to find something new each week…”

And with so many singers, pipers, banjo players, guitarists, turning up each week, it’s easy to see how a song might never remain the same.

Hothouse Flowers LIVE @ Whale Theatre
Jun 13 @ 8:00 pm
Hothouse Flowers LIVE @ Whale Theatre

Something amazing happens when Hothouse Flowers step onto the stage – something that has been shaped by over thirty years of singing and playing all over the world, yet no two shows have ever been the same! There is a sense of musical adventure – an impulse to reach new heights and depths in music where the unspoken aim is that the band and the audience become one and the world becomes a different place for a while.

Hothouse Flowers are a rock n’roll band, Hothouse Flowers are a traditional band, Hothouse Flowers are a soul band, Hothouse Flowers are a jam band with their own organic jam spread on both sides of the bread!

Despite the bands lengthy career, which is now heading into its fourth decade there is a sense of unfinished business.  Every night they want to play the best gig they have ever played and take the musical risks that can maybe make that possible.  There are still songs to be written and emotions to share.  Whether its in a tiny club, an arena or in a festival field there is a sense that the best is yet to come.

Hothouse Flowers were invited to be featured in the opening scene of Amazon Prime’s hugely successful ‘The Grand Tour’ to perform their version of ‘I Can See Clearly Now’ for an invited audience in the Mojave Desert. The song then went to Number 1 in the UK iTunes Rock Charts… a mere 26 years after its first release!

Mack Fleetwood @ Hot Spot Greystones

Ireland’s premier tribute to the Super group Fleetwood Mac, bring you on a magical musical journey from the Peter Green blues era to the multi-platinum selling Anglo/American band that still tour today.

Originally the “Best White Blues Band” to come out of the 60s, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac had several memorable hits and influenced scores of others great bands that were to follow them, and/or cover their songs, such as Led Zeppelin and Santana.

When Peter Green left the band, Mick Fleetwood & John McVie kept the show on the road, being joined first by Christine Perfect (later McVie) and then Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. These three talented and prolific songwriters brought a distinctive style and unique fusion of rock, pop and country to the band. The turmoil of the bands private lives was played out in their music. Nicks & Buckingham soon gained iconic status in fronting the new line-up. Fleetwood Mac enjoyed a rebirth, producing many classic hits including the outstanding Rumours album. They went on to even greater worldwide success than the original line-up.

6 piece band, MACK FLEETWOOD deliver a spellbinding show. Their love of the material and musical prowess shines through in each song. They will bewitch you with authentic renditions all your favourite Fleetwood Mac hits.  PLEASE NOTE – LIMITED SEATING

National Theatre Live 2020 - Jack Absolute Flies Again @ Whale Theatre

Jack Absolute Flies Again

by Richard Bean and Oliver Chris

based on Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s The Rivals

A riotous new comedy.

From the writer of the Broadway smash hit One Man, Two Guvnors comes a hilarious new play, set in 1940s British summertime.

After an aerial dog fight, Pilot Officer Jack Absolute flies home to rejoin his fearless young Hurricane squadron at RAF Fontwell. Once back on British soil, Jack is shocked to find his old flame, Lydia, on the base. He sets his sights on winning her heart, but with turbulence and hilarity never far away, his advances quickly turn to anarchy.

Staged to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, this joyous farce is directed by Thea Sharrock (Me Before You) and features a cast including Caroline Quentin and Richard Fleeshman.

Open Trad Night - Danns Bar @ Danns Bar

For the past 15 years every Tuesday evening, Danns bar has been the location for great session music.  As the night progresses, different musicians arrive, and the music suddenly takes a left turn, down through the Ring of Kerry, before detouring back up through the Burren before a quick trip over to Nashville.

“We’re open to everyone and anything,” says Hughie Browne, the man with the whip, and the keeper of the flame for all these years. “It’s what makes it interesting not only for those listening but, perhaps more importantly, for us. We’re not here to play the same old songs week after week. We’re out to find something new each week…”

And with so many singers, pipers, banjo players, guitarists, turning up each week, it’s easy to see how a song might never remain the same.
