“A great bunch of lads :).”
That’s how the Galway band Amazing Apples, who are playing at Danny Byrne’s this Friday August 23, describe themselves on their Facebook page.
Darragh, Cian, Anthony, Brian and Eanna say their popularity has snowballed throughout Ireland since March when they focused on original music, shaking off their covers band beginnings to develop their own unique sound.
“That sound is Irish/Americana with tons of personality and high-energy performances. All the members are multi-instrumentalists incorporating bouzouki, mandolin, keyboard and banjo for their live show.”
So far this year, they have played alongside The Stunning, Kíla and Mick Flannery at Helium Festival, as well as playing their first headlining slot at Currafest.
They are currently recording their new upcoming single, Slipping By, which will be released in November.
