Plaza Real play the music of Weather Report

Written by conall. Posted in Blues'n'Jazz, Music

Bassist Barry Donohue leads ‘Plaza Real’, a band dedicated to playing the music of 70/80’s jazz fusion group Weather Report.

“Donohue’s father gave him a copy of Weather Report’s masterpiece Heavy Weather when he was thirteen and thus another young life was diverted from the path of ordinary music. Now one of the most respected young jazz musicians on the Dublin scene, Donohue may not be the only bassist to be captivated by the sound of the great Jaco Patorious, or the era-defining music of Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter, but his talent-rich Plaza Real band – with saxophonist Chris Engel, keyboardist Darragh O’Kelly, percussionist Eamonn Cagney, and drummer Shane O’Donovan – is one of the gutsiest and most authentic homages to Weather Report you’re ever likely to hear on a Dublin stage.” ~ Cormac Larkin, The Irish Times
