Back by popular demand and a spellbound audience last year SAINT JOHN THE GAMBLER will return to The Marine Bar, Youghal this Saturday 31st March. They are currently working on an album and 3 members of the band will travel down from Dublin to bring their unique and unforgettable magic to The Marine Bar. Possibly the only band so far to have the arms of every female high up in the air! At the bands request Brian’s bar piano is being tuned especially for the gig, that in itself is a rare occasion not to be missed!
Support from singer-songwriter Alex Bracken to kick off the night with his self penned songs. This singer songwriter will be playing in The Marine Bar for the first time so be sure to give him a warm welcome. He is currently recording at Claycastle Recording Studios, Youghal.
Later in the evening DJ Sean Hardware will be playing his perfect brand of nostalgia and alternative hits from much loved subcultures of 80s and 90s, ranging anywhere between punk, goth and early house/dance.
The night kicks off at 9.30 supersharp, you don’t want to miss a thing!
€5 on the door – doors will close when full so get yourself there early to enjoy the night.
