The Bubblemen return (for one special night)

Sometimes when you get the call, it’s time to drop everything and strap on the P Bass.

Yessir, my old friend Mike Kane was back for a holiday from NZ and rallied the troops for a night of loudness, poses and guitar Olympics in Jackie’s Rendezvous bar in Sligo last Friday.

It was great to play (loud n’proud) with the lads again (+ guest appearances by Tabby Callaghan & Barry Brennan) and rock out with not a click track in sight. We played at the opening night here twenty years ago, it was a great night then and a great night now, everybody had a blast, hopefully we’re still here in another twenty 🙂

Thanks for having us again Jackie!

L-R Mike, Francie, James, Seán, Gerry and Liam.
