The Dead Sets
Dun Laoghaire, County Dublin
Seeing themselves as a breath of fresh air in a largely stale musical environment, The Dead Sets are offering a wholesome new take on a rock’n’roll sound.
Coming together as youths with a shared passion for the beauty of making music means the band have been able to develop together in developing their vision of a high energy guitar rock sound. Their songs take their cue from the upbeat rhythms of funk combined with the sweet Earthy melodies of the Chicago blues.
The band feel most at home on stage performing. The experience of countless live sets has helped to shape their sound and the band takes the performance aspect of gigging very seriously. First time crowd members often come away with an image of front man Luke mid-flight, set against the distorted first chord of a chorus from lead guitar player James. The up-tempo blues grooves within the music lend themselves to wild dancing both on and in front of the stage.
The Dead Sets are an interesting new sound that certainly shouldn't be overlooked by those brave enough to follow rock'n'roll into the modern sonic sphere.
The Dead Sets are:
Luke Sharkey - Vocals/Rhythm Guitar
James Coffey - Lead Guitar
Eoin Brennan - Keys
Rob Healy - Bass
