Bluesberriez to play Bar Habana

The Bluesberriez

The Bluesberriez

The Bluesberriez are the newest band to join the Portlaoise music scene and after a number of successful gigs already, they will be returning to play Bar Habana on Sunday December 22.

They started out in April this year as an acoustic three piece band and now consist of five members with lead singers Rachael Taylor-Fawsitt and Haley Lewis, guitarist John (Baba) Scanlon, drummer Alan Eakins, and bassist Tommy Lyons.

Although they have kept a few of the softer songs which they started with in the beginning, lots more funky upbeat numbers have been added to the set. Inspired by the likes of Etta James, Bill Withers, James Brown, Marvin Gaye and Ben L’Oncle, the band are a feisty mixture of soul and funk who hope to get the midlands dancing in 2014.
