Lucan Festival are delighted that The Gandhis have confirmed to play The Village Stage on Sunday September 25th. The Gandhis are a Dublin based four-piece, in which writing and singing duties are shared between all four members. They have a unique style and panache in creating a simple yet immediately infectious melody – something that you can sing along to as if you’ve known it all your life. Throw in a neat brass section; some wonderfully arranged harmonies, and a collection of delightfully sunny guitar riffs. The four band members are: Niall Cullen – Bass and Vocal, Conor Deasy – Lead Guitar and Vocal, Aidan McKelvey – Guitar and Vocal, Bazz O’Reilly – Drums and Vocal.
In 2008 they were signed to Dublin label 1969 records, and their debut album ‘You Are My Friend’ was released in October ’09 with a sell-out launch night in Whelans. The band have made national appearances on the likes of RTE’s “Saturday Night With Miriam” and “The Cafe”, Having developed a strong reputation for their energetic live shows, some press comments attributed to The Gandhis include:
