The Opacas release new single and video at showcase gig

The gig takes place on January 19 at Seven with Bríd Kenny, Eoin Dolan and Synergy

An exciting showcase gig featuring four Galway musical acts will take place in The Loft @ Seven, Bridge Street, on Thursday January 19.

To kick the evening off, young Galway sensations Synergy will be taking to the stage. A new band, they received huge acclaim following their gig in Arás na nGael in November with their genre bending style. The quintet – John Flannery, Eoin Cahill, Eoin Schaefer, Mark Tobin, and Romain Gadioux – have come a long way since starting to write songs in their car, and they are certainly going to go a long way.

The Opacas, Bríd Kenny, Eoin Dolan, and Synergy will all take to the stage to showcase their material in hope of landing slots in the Galway International Arts Festival and Galway Fringe this summer.

The Opacas will be launching their new single and video, ‘Rainbow Cloud’. This is the ninth single by the Galway based group who began life as a virtual band during the Covid lockdowns. The gig will include the first screening of the official video of their single which continues their long time collaborations with Knocknacarra Amateur Theatre Society and Athenry Drama Group. The Opacas are Steve Talbot, Peter Tobin, and Pat Boyle, with Mike McLoughlin on percussion and Joe Treacy taking over lead guitar duties from Leeds based Mark Raynor.

The highly regarded singer-songwriter Eoin Dolan will be playing acoustic versions of songs from his latest album, Mirror Liver. Hot Press described him as “A Galway musician who channels the Beach Boys’ sunny warmth like no other in the country.”

Bríd Kenny is no stranger to the Galway live music scene and will be performing acoustic versions of tracks from her latest EP, It Matters. Bríd played the Róisín Dubh on New Year’s Eve and is one of the most interesting singer-songwriters on the circuit today. She will be performing without her band, The Noise, so this is a great opportunity to see and hear a talented artist performing her music raw.

This exciting event is a great chance to see four different Galway based musical acts performing their original material in a superb setting. Tickets are limited and are available on www.opacas.com The first 50 ticket buyers can use the promo code SHOWCASE for a 50% discount.
