Bobby and the Blunts are an energetic, humorous and downright funky four piece from Mullingar that brings the noise and puts a smile on the faces of every audience member with their uptempo and gripping jams.
From driving rhythm guitar to the eponymous frontman’s stomping basslines to silky Stratocaster solos, they are a band that raise the roof of every venue they grace, including Dublin’s Sin é and Whelan’s, as well as two Electric Picnics and Waterford’s own Electric Avenue and Theatre Royal.
Their all-original material is certified modern funk classics with a progressive element as its often impossible to predict the turns tracks’ tempos will take, or the dramatic double stops the impeccably-rehearsed group pepper in.
Songs and performances zoom by all too soon as they fire through their catalogue of catchy tunes with practised professionalism while casually and comfortable commanding the crowd.
Bobby and the Blunts are on the rise among Ireland’s hottest venues and leading festivals. They are set to return to Waterford on Saturday 28thJanuary, performing at Uisce Beatha. After the soundcheck for the Galway launch of The Dream Rotation Tour, the band spared some time to speak with Simon O’Connor.
Do NOT miss Bobby and the Blunts live at Uisce Beatha, the Quay, Waterford on Saturday 28th January! Tickets available HERE!
