We here at Out the Gap are not known for our traditional Irish music, as we specialize in different forms of music.we are wondering how many of you like trad music?
Here at Out the Gap we like to highlight local talent that avail of our studios and practice spaces. So lets get to it introducing another fantastic band from Killarney Conan’s Mob.
Conan’s Mob are punk rock band hailing from Killarney. The band was formed when the guys were still in secondary school. They have struggled for years to get practice spaces. The above picture was taken when they were practicing in a nightclub once a week this went on for nearly a year. They had to move the gear every time they needed to practice. Nightmare! Not any more thanks to us here at Out the Gap where we provide sound proofed practice areas. The guys have now found a permanent place to practice. You can check out more about the band on their Facebook page
In this series of posts we will cast an eye on the local talent here in Killarney. The town is buzzing with bands from rock bands, trad , blues and folk to singer songwriters. There is a lot of talent out there. We here at Out The Gap welcome many of these musicians to our studios for practice sessions and recording demos and EPs. There is a brilliant community feel to our studios where musicians meet each other and develop links within the industry. We try to help musicians in any way we can so please feel free to get in touch!
The first band we are going to highlight are called Rasher and The Trainwrecks.
The band was formed in 2008 , when a local group of friends decided to form a band. They play country, folk, blues and rockabilly. We are slightly biased here at Out The Gap as our manager Caoimhe is in the band! The band have been playing consistently for the past couple of years in bars around the country. They have been played on radio and have recorded two live E.ps the second of which was recorded here in Out The Gap studios. The band uses our services regularly as it was their story that started the business in the first place! Check out their website for more information on upcoming gigs.
This summer, Killarney is gearing up to be the music capital of Ireland! There are a wide range of festivals catering for different musical tastes. One of which is the Killarney festival which promises to be an amazing weekend. The event is taking place in Killarney National Park which is just a stones throw away from us here at Out The Gap.
What a setting! Tickets are available I would highly recommend getting yours as soon as possible as this festival is sure to sell out! And while you are down here be sure and pop into us here at Out the Gap, where we can help with any of your musical needs!
