BibleCodeSundays Rock Ealing on Saturday
Irish band play free gig at O'Neils this Saturday
O’Neill’s in Ealing town centre is one of a handful of specially selected venues in the country set to play host to a free intimate gig with one of the UK’s hottest up and coming bands as part of their summer tour.
The BibleCodeSundays will appear on Saturday 18th July.
It follows a manic year of tours, gigs and festivals across the US for the band, which resulted in them supporting the Drop Kick Murphys at the biggest St Patrick’s Day party in the world in Boston, USA.
All six members of the band have music in their genes. Guitar and vocalist Ronan MacManus is the brother of well-known musician Elvis Costello, whilst Andy Nolan, the band’s accordion player, has played alongside Shane MacGowan & The Popes. Carlton Hunt (ex Bad Manners), is the band’s drummer, Enda Mulloy – bass and vocals – is the son of Tom from the legendary Mulloy brothers, Joe Moran (flute and vocals) is a renowned musician, and Patrick Franklin has been tipped as London’s hottest young fiddle player.
Having formed in multicultural London surrounded by a strong Irish community, The BibleCodeSundays have effortlessly merged the sounds of other Irish bands such as U2, Thin Lizzy and The Pogues to create a unique sound. Representing both the history and future of Irish music, The BibleCodeSundays have released two albums to date, ‘Ghosts of Our Past’ and ‘Boots or No Boots’, and are described as a breath of fresh air by infusing an eclectic mix of ‘London Irish Rock’, Irish sounds and home-grown lyrics.
Ronan MacManus, the band’s singer and guitarist, said: “For us, music is all about performing live gigs and where better to find a crowd who are up for the craic than O’Neill’s?! Because we love to play music from our Irish roots, it’s great that we can do such a major national tour of some great Irish pubs.
The performances will showcase a mix of their own material and renditions of some classic anthems during the summer evenings.
Michael Blake, manager of O’Neill’s Ealing, said: “O’Neill’s is one of the best venues for top quality live music gigs; we’re proud to support live bands, and this tour celebrates some foot-stomping Irish music that we know our customers will love. The BibleCodeSundays Tour will provide an all-round evening of entertainment at each of the 18 venues and, coupled with Irish-sourced and inspired food and drink, promises to be an unmissable event. What’s even better is that there won’t be an entry charge for any of the 18 gigs.
