    Global Dance night with DJ Nigel Woods

    The Wicklow Dance Club is taking a break from its Bel Air base and moving closer to town to the Hot Spot Music Club. Two comfortable rustic rooms for dancing, sitting, chatting, drinking at the bar, and dancing again....  The rhythms remain the same – always different – from all corners and all comers. The punters are warm, friendly and gesturally expressive!  We hope you can make it! Free Dance / All Ages!

    Daniel Jeanrenaud alias ‘The Camden Cat’ and Rockin’ Roll king of the London underground is heading your way for a short Irish tour. He has assembled a band of Irish musicians to augment his sound of the greats!

    Throughout his career, Daniel Jeanrenaud has shared a bill, and hung out with the likes of; Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley and more. Daniel’s first band to break into the industry was 'The Kingsnakes' - which he formed with several members of American cult punk band 'The Flamin Groovies'.  Chuck Berry even named Daniel's favourite Gibson guitar 'Nadine' after borrowing it on tour at Bill Grahams 'Old Waldorf' in downtown San Francisco. The Kingsnakes parted ways in the mid-nineties, playing their last show at the Olympia in Paris with 'Screamin' Jay Hawkins'

    Since then Daniel has been the man behind a legendary 12-year residency at the Marathon in Camden Town attracting the likes of Paul Weller, Jarvis Cocker, Liam & Noel Gallagher, and Amy Winehouse to the crowds. Daniel has also regularly jammed at the restaurant with Chas Smash of Madness, and even performed a few songs with Tina Weymouth of Talking Heads, and with Jack White of the White Stripes which was covered by Kerrang! and NME Magazine in 2002.

    If you like Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochrane, Elvis or Fats Domino do not miss this tour! Daniel Jeanrenaud is fronting James Delaney on keyboard who has played with Chuck Berry himself as well as Van Morrison; Simon Farrell on double bass who toured with Imelda May in 2008 and Shane Atlas on drums. Other bands under their collective belts include Gavin Povey & the Pavement Kings.

    We Raise Bears bring their unique sound to The Hot Spot as part of an upcoming Irish Tour. We Raise Bears’ music has continued to gain critical attention, with BBC Radio recently attributed it with having "such a uniqueness in sound, a character, a confidence and an intelligence as well". Their now recognisably poignant and political lyricism has been described as “stunning” (Dublin Concerts).

    In November 2016, the band released a well-received debut EP, which gained airplay across BBC radio, RTE radio 1, 2FM and TXFM, as well as on Irish and UK regional stations. We Raise Bears have performed at festivals that include Hard Working Class Heroes, Other Voices, Canalaphonic, Electric Picnic, Vantastival, Ones to Watch and regional arts festivals. They have delighted in headlining at venues around the country and also in sharing stages with acts like We Cut Corners, Cathy Davey and Conor O’Brien.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4a5b7AyBqCk

    “Beguiling…new band for potential future hit parade” - Jim Carroll, The Irish Times

    “Definitely a band to keep an eye on, they immediately stand out from the crowd” - Chris Jones, Music Journalist

    "We Raise Bears manage to create a new sound that is thoroughly their own" - Dee Reddy, TXFM

    Buddy Mondlock writes songs. He does it so well that some great songwriters have recorded his songs on their own albums. Guy Clark, Nanci Griffith, and Janis Ian, to name just a few. You might have heard his song “The Kid” (recorded by David Wilcox, Peter, Paul and Mary and Cry, Cry, Cry) and maybe even sung it yourself around a campfire. He draws you into his world - where a single snowflake follows the trajectory of a relationship, where you get you pocket picked by a Roman cat, where you might swim over the edge of the world if you're not careful and where dreams that donʼt come true still count.

    UZIZI (pronounced you-zee-zee) is an all-original world folk/rock group from Cleveland, Ohio. Uzizi finds it's inspiration in the beats and melodies from Ireland to Bulgaria, from the Appalachian Mountains to the Middle East, and back around again. They sometimes incorporates an early form of American music called sacred harp, or shape-note singing into some of it's repertoire. Sacred Harp's earliest roots are traced back to the country parish music of early 18th century England.

    Celtic Soul are a 7-piece band band from Bangor delivering a very fine tribute to Van Morrison with excellent musicianship, authenticity and heart.

    Receiving critical acclaim from devout Van fans wherever they perform, you’ll hear the big hits like Jackie Wilson Said, Days Like This, and of course Brown Eyed Girl. You’ll also hear Ballerina, Cyprus Avenue, and In the Garden among many others in a packed show.

    Several live ‘unplugged’ performances on Gerry Kelly’s show on BBC Radio Ulster have boosted the band’s following. BBC’s Ralph McLean, a massive Van Morrison fan himself, describes Celtic Soul as ‘a great band’ and ‘a very fine tribute’. With more years than they care to remember playing in blues, folk, trad and jazz bands these musicians have the ingredients to combine and deliver Van’s music in an outstanding show.  Doors open 8pm. Show starts at 9pm sharp. Note: The first 20 tickets are €14!

    With each successive album, Luka Bloom digs deeper and gazes wider… he is on top form.
    – The Irish Times **** 2016 Review of 'Frugalisto'
    With a poet's heart and a rockster's soul, Luka Bloom is regarded as one of Ireland's most respected contemporary folk artists, having produced over 20 albums since the 1970s, Bloom continues to push the boundaries of what his music can do.

    A master interpreter, Bloom has continued to balance original songs with reinventions of tunes by a diverse range of songwriters.  Like many who write songs, Luka's orchestra of choice is the guitar. What makes his career a little different is his constant search for a new voice within the guitar. The guitar is the landscape on which the song is created, and he is forever probing that landscape for new inspiration. No effects, no gadgets. Time, effort and a whole lot of love bring forth new voicings within the instrument, and bit by bit, the songs come to life. And eventually they fly, bringing Luka with them to be heard in Byron Bay, San Francisco, Hamburg, or even Doolin. Almost 40 years since recording his first album, Luka Bloom comes to The Hot Spot Music Club with his latest album 'Frugalisto'.

     *Limited number of tickets on sale at €16
