Having been cast out, blacklisted, rejected and ejected from gentlemen’s clubs far and wide, five dejected Irish men have joined forces to bring audiences a unique brand of folk noir/gypsy jazz/sea shanty and swaggering stage spectacle. 

Purveyors of music that meanders from sea soaked waltz to Italian tarantella, from Brassy funeral lament to Klezmar knees up, from chain gang holler to rag time finger snap. Skipping through the dark side of anything that makes you want to dance, steeped in melodrama and usually with not a small amount of tongue in cheek.

The band have been rousing ballrooms and booze houses far and wide, sullying soirees and lowering inhibitions of social occasions wherever they have ventured.

If you want to make a night of if, why not enjoy dinner before the show at The Governor's Cafe. Dinner is available from 6pm. Click here to view our dinner menu
