Barley Mob The Voice Of A Generation At Shortt's
"if Ireland need a voice for the modern day generations, The Barley Mob are that voice"
Friday June 8th is the return of the Barley Mob to Shortt's live music veneue,
The BaRLey MOB are a 7 piece group hailing from Ireland, whose collective influences have fused to create a unique style of music. Described as one of the hardest working bands in Ireland, they bring a fresh blend of uplifting music to their listeners, embellished and delivered with equal measures of rock riffs, soulful melodies, folk jigs and infectious beats.
This is "Everybodys Music" relevant to all who encounter it and spreading a message of positivity. Born from days of economic uncertainty and personal obstacles, The BaRLey MOB has set out to entertain, move and relate to their listeners. Through energetic and electric live shows they leave the crowds feeling as though they were involved in something special.
Anthems such as "Never be lost" and "Everybodys' Music" tell the story of the importance of music in our lives, while a crowd favourite, "Stand Up, Rise Up", urges us all to stand up and be counted amongst our peers.
Since forming in April 2010, The BaRLey MOB has played over 200 gigs from the smallest snugs to the illustrious Electric Picnic, where they performed 6 times in one weekend. Every gig, rehearsal and road trip resulted in the band being described by the Irish Daily Star as "One of the tightest live bands on the circuit today" in 2011.
In October 2011 the band took time out in the studio to record their first album, due for release May 2012. While recording the album the band were invited to play live on the Pat Kenny show on RTE Radio 1. The legendary broadcaster Pat Kenny described the band as "A ray of sunshine". This complimented earlier success when the group won the International Dublin City Soul Festival "Rising Stars" competition just 3 months after they were formed and received Music Review Unsigned "Band of The Month" award in November 2010.
