The Bonnevilles

Wednesday May 30
7:00 pm - 10:30 pm
14+ Accompanied by an adult

The Bonnevilles are shaking Northern Ireland in away it hasn’t felt
since Van Morrison & Them obliterated Club Rado in 1964 and Stiff Little
Fingers blew apart The Trident in 1977! The Bonnevilles
don’t so much play punk blues as use it as a springboard to create a
completely new genre. And now they release their 4th studio album “Dirty
Photographs” with LA based Alive Natural Sound
Records.

The Lurgan duo take Mississippi Hill Blues and Punk Rock and mix their
own unique dark Northern Irish Punk Blues stew which drew the attention
of the fore mentioned Alive Natural Sound which saw them release the
award nominated “Arrow Pierce My Heart” on the label in 2016. The
Bonnevilles formed in 2009 and quickly released their debut, and now,
legendary album “Good Suits &
Fightin’ Boots” on Motor Sounds Records. McGibbon being a blues fan was
moved to create The Bonnevilles after a brief time in another duo and
being heavily inspired by RL Burnsides “ A Ass
Pocket Of Whiskey” and bands like The Soledad Brothers, The Immortal Lee
County Killers along with blues heavyweights like Howlin’ Wolf, Robert
Johnson, Chess Records etc combined with
McMullans heavy metal drumming style the band has become Europe’s top
alternative blues act.

Playing the Deep Blues festival in Clarkesdale Mississippi and the
legendary Junior’s Juke Joint in Holly Springs in 2015 cemented the
bands reputation as the real deal. Now the bands new album “Dirty
Photographs” sees the band reach new creative fields, the same dark
blues punk stew with added sugar.
