Local rock stars The Valves will be getting the crowds into the festive mood of bad knitwear and banging tunes with their Christmas Jumper Party Extravaganza at the Square Bar in Portlaoise this month.
The Valves consist of Terry Byrne on guitar and vocals, Aiden O’Reilly on bass and vocals and Dick Duff on drums and vocals.
They play a very mixed bag of covers with a quirky, energetic feel.
From classic surf guitar to recent Indie rock ,spanning decades of influences, they cover artists as diverse as The Kinks, The Beatles, Del Shannon, The Venturers, The Pixies, Nirvana, The Breeders and Arcade Fire to name but a few.
If there is gonna be one pre-Christmas party to rule them all it may be this one, when The Valves take to the stage of the Square Bar in Portlaoise on Saturday, December 23.
