I play guitar in a band along with five other people. My wife Claire is on vocals, Denis on lead guitar and backing vocals (he's also the songwriter), Cathal on bass, another Denis on drums and Jenny on keyboards. We've played some local festivals and the pub circuit for a few years now. We normally practice in our house but it's not always easy to get all six of us in one place at one time so we sometimes play as a five piece or a four piece and now and again Denis and Claire would do some acoustic stuff together. They were working on a new tune last Friday and Claire thought they should record a wee video and stick it up on our Facebook page...in a matter of hours it had hundreds of views and now it's at 2166 (between the Facebook link and the YouTube link) :eek: The local press have now picked up on it - http://www.donegaldaily.com/2016/09/18/buncrana-musicians-film-music-video-in-most-unlikely-place/ :lol:
It was recorded in the back of our campervan :lol:

Sounds good. How about you come and play at Beautiful Budel next year? :D We have a stage outside for daytime gigs or you can play by your bus. :)

Things have moved on a bit since I first posted this thread. We supported Feeder at the end of last month and on Saturday night we launched our debut EP and had the first showing of the video for the lead track, Stupid Heart. We also hit the Top 20 of the Irish iTunes chart the same evening. Some of the local press have picked up on it. Here's a link to an article where you can watch the video - http://www.donegaldaily.com/2018/07/30/buncrana-bands-debut-ep-climbs-the-charts/ :D

Cheers guys! :)

Which one are you? From the names and the photo, I'm guessing one of the two on the right, probably the one in the black T-shirt.
That's me. Big Greg McD... :lol:
