BACKROAD SMOKERS CLUB
Formed on the boreens of Waterford County, the Backroad Smokers Club have BEEN LIKENED TO James
Brown on a stamp of acid or Steely Dans nephew. Combining early 70’s funk with jazz and psychedelic rock, they
create layered grooves under cognizant yet surreal lyricism, brought to life in the comforts of a live setting.
Like a snowball rolling down the hill Quangodelic picked up more and more musicians. Got tighter and looser at
the same time. More a cult than a band. If you come across members of Quangodelic speak calmly and point
them in the right direction or they may get excited and confused.
BOBBY & THE BLUNTS
A four piece power funk band ‘collectively coming together to create some funky and abnormal instrumentals and
bust out a few lyrical masterpieces.’
