Trio Of Rock Bands Coming To Gorey And Will Play Same Night

In an Irish original band scene that can be a tricky musical sea to navigate at the best of times, Foot Squeaker believe the words of Wayne and Gareth, “If you book them they will come”…

The band have assembled what Diarmuid Comerford, Foot Squeaker’s lead singer and guitarist, describes as “a night to get away from it all, soothe your stresses, let it all go, expect the unexpected. There are no support acts, it is just three of Ireland’s finest original rock bands doing their thing, their way”.

Peer Pleasure are a village-wide renowned musical quintet comprised of members from all across the great south-eastern plains of Co. Wexford. The group came together in the year of our lord, 2021 in an attempt to achieve global pop domination, despite playing a mix of ‘musical’ styles informed by the sounds of garage rock, Nashville country and lost episodes of Wife Swap USA.

The band has had great success gigging and organising DIY shows around County Wexford and Dublin; including but not limited to Ionaid Sean Hueston in support of the RHL with Meryl Streek, an all day punk festival with Tunnel Rats in Bohs Bar, in conventional venues such as Anseo with the Onion boys, a triumphant homecoming show in the Enniscorthy Presentation Arts Centre, a headline show in the Workman’s Cellar and a sold out show in the downstairs of Fibber Magees as well as a sold out support slot with Meryl Streek in Whelans. They have been gigging relentlessly since May 2022 to build a following and recently embarked on a tour of the mainland continent, performing in Leuven, Amsterdam, Groningen, Cologne and Tournai. Peer Pleasure have conquered Northern Europe and now set their sights towards home to take over the rest of Ireland.

Gorey’s very own, homegrown, Foot Squeaker, a three piece rock ’n’ mix who have 2023 in their sights. This band consists of Diarmuid Comerford on Vocals/Guitars, Mike Lynch on Drums/Vocals, and Alfred Johnson on Bass. They blew the roof off Fibber Magees on a rainy night in Dublin back in March and intend to do the same in the Loch Garman. As they put the finishing touches to their new single, ‘Silhouette’ they have been in a heavy writing, rehearsal mode to be ready to brandish their melodic, twisty, turny, foot stomping rock and roll.

Drying Weather, hailing from Dublin, bring their original, fuzzy acoustic brand of alternative rock layered with vocal harmony and twinkling reverb adding up to a curiously addictive sound. Fresh from shows in Dublin’s Whelans and The Grand Social the band were also finalists in the recent Hot Press Irish Music Month for East Coast Radio.

Monsters of Loch – Gorey Triple Rock Header – Peer Pleasure, Foot Squeaker & Drying Weather – Saturday May 27th, Loch Garman Arms, Gorey, Co. Wexford. Doors 8:30pm, Tickets €8 on / €10 on the door, 18s+.
