Raglans im­press Har­bour pun­ters with live show

Bray People - - St David’s Car Boot Sale -

GREY­STONES based band The Raglans played to an enor­mous crowd at the Har­bour Bar last Satur­day night.

As the bar was heav­ing with fans the at­mos­phere was elec­tric and the crowd were left call­ing for more.

The boys took the stage where they en­ter­tained the pun­ters for two hours play­ing a mas­sive 23 songs.

Their sec­ond EP en­ti­tled Where Bat­tered Spir­its soon are Mended was sold out in three min­utes on the night.

The three piece band with a line up of Stephen Kelly (lead vo­cals & gui­tar), Luke Car­rig (lead vo­cals, conga & man­dolin) and David Hayes (lead gui­tar, har­mon­ica & vo­cals) have gained a mas­sive fan base through­out Wick­low and are sell­ing out gigs as far as Cork.

The Raglans mu­sic could be de­scribed as acous­tic folk rock pop with a lib­eral sprin­kling of rhythm and blues in­flu­enc­ing the whole mix.

It has a true in­die type pop feel to it and al­ready the lads have built a solid fan­base.

At the har­bour bar the lads played 21 orig­i­nal songs with two cov­ers added to the mix.

The crowd were blown away as the Raglan’s paid trib­ute to the leg­endary Bea­tles, with their hit Don’t Let me Down.

The Grey­stones boys suc­cess con­tin­ues with a con­tract to record a fur­ther two E P’s be­tween now and the end of Novem­ber be­fore trav­el­ling to Lon­don to record a full al­bum which will com­prise some of the songs al­ready recorded along with new tunes.
