Umbra

Arthur's Blues & Jazz Club, Thursday 21st March 2019

Umbra, one of the most exciting and innovative bands in the Irish Jazz scene – comprised of some of the most promising musicians in Dublin – their modus operandi is high energy, thought provoking performance, with an emphasis on intricate compositions.

Led by guitarist and composer Chris Guilfoyle, Umbra is his vehicle to showcase his unique take on contemporary jazz. The music is a blend of harmonic and melodic sophistication reminiscent of artists like John Hollenbeck and Jim Mcneely, cyclical grooves evoking comparisons with IDM and math metal, all played with the energy of a punk rock band.

“Arguably one of the most exciting jazz ensembles in Europe… A vibrant set of original tunes… thrilling back-and-forth between the two saxophonists — but even in the midst of the most exuberant solos a pronounced sense of collective groove held sway.” – All About Jazz.

Church - The Good Friday, Meat / Sex / Booze / Rave. James, Dave and Kyle started Church. Church was a party where you could be who you want, kiss who you want and do what you want. It was the complete opposite of the actual church. After a hiatus, they returned for a series of one off parties. Church – The Reunion was too much fun that there was no way that they would not throw one more party for the hundreds of sinners that turned up to repent. This time around they're back on the holiest of nights, Good Friday, and hosting the inaugural MEAT / SEX / BOOZE / RAVE. Once again, James,
