Everyone’s favourite ‘Party Down’ band from back in the day is back on the road! Stagalee were at the heart of the live music scene in the McGonigles era and their Thursday night residency there has gone down in legend!… always jam-packed and buzzing! At this time the band were in constant demand everywhere and were working 8 days a week around the country as well.

Stagalee have reformed and are currently rehearsing for their “37 Year Itch Tour 2018” The band embark on ‘Part One’ of the tour in May to test their chops and the groove… Initial rehearsals suggest that both the chops and the groove are in fine fettle and, if anything, have benefitted from experience and a rhythm section that really works well! A fully matured outfit with a respectful nod to nostalgia but sights firmly set on moving forward…
