Beer For Breakfast

Beer for Breakfast are a four piece Irish Band, who play a fantastic and lively range of Traditional and Contemporary Irish Music as well as Celtic Rock and Country Rock & Roll. They are all professional musicians who came together from academic, formal, semi-pro and session music backgrounds, to form one of the liveliest bands in the UK Irish music scene today. They generate a vibrant and energetic atmosphere at live performances guaranteed to have you up on your feet dancing and singing or more usually both at the same time.

The Band are no strangers to the folk scene and have been playing at pubs, clubs and festivals throughout the UK for the past four years. The musical pedigree of the individual players goes back much further: each has a history of playing with different bands. Now with BBC radio performances under their belt, this band is becoming well known for their particular brand of music. Beer for Breakfast have a first class self- contained PA and Bose speaker system which is covered by Public Liability Insurance and an Electrical Equipment certificate and we come equipped ready to play at all types of venues small to large, e.g. Festivals, Pubs, Clubs, Corporate events and Weddings. We also specialise in Ceili‟s and have excellent Callers for all types of Ceili, whether you want your Ceili to have an Irish, Scottish or English flavour!

Testimonials

The Swinton Folk Festival was a little wet, due to howling gales, but it didn't seem to dampen the enthusiasm of those inside the Lancastrian Hall, Best gigs of the event went to Stanley Accrington and a new bunch to me called Beer for Breakfast, (what an awful name,) but nothing awful about their Celtic influenced folk and swing. They did doubly well as their regular fiddler was absent having chopped off his fingers; very bright. Get in touch people if you read this.

The following night on the Saturday, we went to the Huntington in Manchester and saw the second set of Beer for Breakfast, the band were terrific and the crowd asked for at least two encores
- Manchester Music Review

"Beer for Breakfast are no strangers to the folk scene and have been playing at pubs, clubs and festivals throughout the North West for the past two years. The musical pedigree of the individual players goes back much further: each has a history of playing with different bands for more years than they will admit to. Beer for Breakfast play the best of traditional & contemporary Irish songs and music, generating a vibrant and energetic atmosphere at live performances guaranteed to have you up on your feet dancing and singing or more usually both at the same time. Now with BBC radio performances under their belt, this band are becoming well known for their particular brand of music. They are busy gigging in pubs & clubs round NW England this year and are getting some good write-ups and are just finishing off a CD of their material. As well as the traditional and contemporary Irish songs and tunes, country and Celtic rock, they have been doing Ceili‟s with an excellent caller- so they are very versatile! "
