On Saturday, June 30 Oddsocks Revival are coming down to Joe Lee’s pub, Tullamore to put on their energetic show and play some of their mixture of rock, funky & bluesy tunes.
Oddsocks Revival are a hardworking four piece funk-rock and blues band in their mid 20’s. These Dublin based Sligo musicians have been touring Ireland relentlessly since 2009, putting a unique and modern edge on to a classic 70’s rock/funk style.
Their use of unusual four part vocal harmonies and four lead vocalists sets them apart, while songs that incorporate soulful yet cheeky hip-hop influenced hooks to a funked out classic rock sound is their niche. Last year saw the lads record and release their debut album “It’s Time”. With guidance from producer James Durkin (Sun Studios), they captured the raw energy from their live show and gave it the fine sound of the studio. The album was released last Easter on their own label “Jeanie Mac Records”.
The band line up is Anthony Mannion (Lead Guitar/Vox), Luke Mercer (Lead Guitar/Vox), Michael Conefrey (Bass/Vox) and Eoghan O’Kelly (Drums/Vox).
The lads were schoolmates in Sligo with a common interest in classic rock and blues music and the band started from there. They quickly developed their own style, built up a repertoire of original music and gained a reputation for playing lively 2-3 hour sets in packed out sweaty venues.
After College/University they decided to turn professional. They set up their own label, bought a van and now they have been on the road full time for the last two years.
