Barry Mcgivern Band, Ireland’s Rory Gallagher Tribute Band

12th May @ 9:30 pm - 13th May @ 12:00 am


Join Ireland’s longest running dedicated Rory Gallagher tribute band. The BMG band plays Rory’s music the way Rory played it. Pedal to the metal performances, pin drop lows, soaring solos, pinched harmonics and a big dollop of Barry McGivern’s style seamlessly woven into Rory’s music. As close as it gets to the real deal, and a night filled with great blues and rock’n’roll music
