Bandtastic event this weekend in Kilkee


RCB Radio will present music event showcasing some of Clare’s brightest talented young musicians and artists.

Bandtastic take place on Saturday 26th August in the Lounge, Myles Creek in Kilkee from 9pm. The aim of the gig is to promote talented unsigned artists from around Clare.

The artists come from all over Clare; Foinse from Kilrush, Eoghan McLoughlin from Carrigaholt, Evan Murphy from Shannon and Ian Moloney from Doonbeg. Each of these promising artists is incredibly talented, many of them writing and producing their own material. Indeed, Evan Murphy (22) has recently released an EP of his own material called “Take what you will”. All the artists are currently unsigned by major record labels but great things are expected of these fantastic musicians.

Doors will open at 8:45pm. There will be a €5 entry fee payable at the door and  a special offer of half price entry into the adjoining “Loop” Nightclub for the first 80 people who attend the event. ID will be required.

RCB are committed to supporting local artists, to helping keep local music alive and to giving local people a voice in their community.
