The DeadBeat Collective were formed in 2010 after two childhood friends ran into each other outside a pub after 20 years. After catching up they discovered they were both recently unemployed, still had their Ghostbusters lunchboxes and loved having adventures; they decided to bring their different music tastes together and create something that inspired them.
Their debut performance in Roisin Dubh, Galway drew a packed house and set tongues wagging across the city, where crowds at their shows have been growing steadily ever since.
In November 2010, The DeadBeat Collective were selected by First Music Contact to open up for Fionn Regan, Jape + And So I Watch You From Afar in the Galway FMC event.They were also asked to support Tubelord on the Galway leg of their recent Irish tour.
In February 2011 they launched a 3 track demo which can be heard on this site and downloaded for free from http://thedeadbeatcollective.bandcamp.com
The DeadBeat Collective are now preparing to embark on a tour that will take them anywhere with a stage and an audience.
