Nigel Mooney is widely regarded as Ireland’s leading jazz singer and guitarist. A charismatic figure on the Dublin jazz and blues scenes since the early 1980s, his Gripewater Blues Band spearheaded the blues movement in Ireland and drew many fans of both jazz and the blues. A self-taught musician, Mooney was influenced by the blues from an early age and his hard-bop style of guitar playing is expressive and melodic with a bluesy groove. He possesses a warm and rich tenor voice and has an almost flawless sense of pitch. His first album, ‘All My Love’s In Vain’ (Rubyworks) was released in 2005 to critical acclaim and has become one of Ireland’s highest selling albums by a jazz artist. The single, ‘Beautiful Day’, charted on the Irish hit parade and still receives regular airplay. Mooney’s second album, ‘The Bohemian Mooney’ is out now on Lyte Records

Los PaRadiso have emerged out of the ashes of various famous Blues, Boogie, Rockabilly and Rock Bands that supplied the best of music to the Irish and British scene. These musicians who are based in Dublin, Ireland were forged in London’s Hope & Anchor, Dingwalls and Dublin’s Baggot Inn and Whelan’s before playing to thousands in international venues and stadiums with ‘big acts’. For the past 3 years Los PaRasdiso have driven their own original music with prowess and verve. The have recorded (mostly live) an original set of songs that journey thorough all the halls and mirrors of rock’n’roll…songs that are vintage-NOW and future proof to ensure the beat goes on. Los PaRadiso write songs that let the music and lyrics guide the band…agnostic believers that hold the compositions must appeal as much to the feet as to the head and be enjoyable to perform Ed Deane: (Guitar and Slide) has played with Graham Parker, Ian Dury and The Blockheads, Nick Lowe, Chris Farlowe, Shuggie Otis, The Woods Band, Granny’s Intentions…. James Delaney: (Piano, Organ, Accordion) has played with Van Morrison, Rory Gallagher, Chuck Berry, Clannad, Sharon Shannon, Mary Coughlan….
