Bog The Donkey were formed in 1995. They are one of the most successful and distinctive bands currently playing out of Ireland. They play all of the major festivals and clubs throughout the country, as well as touring the UK and USA on a regular basis. With around 80 years of musical experience between them, these guys really should know their trade. And it really shows in their live performances. Their regular show is an incredible mix of every kind of music. This really shouldn’t work, but somehow every track seems to compliment the next effortlessly. It really is a beast of wild energy, with controlled musical finesse. Yet, through all the different styles and songs the guys can perform, they always manage to keep the ‘Bog The Donkey’ essence of fun and high standard. Our advice is to just go out and see Bog The Donkey live. I guarantee you haven’t heard or seen anything like them before!

The Jam Masters was formed subsequently to this and the bands popularity is astounding. The band’s original material is hard to define being bluesy, jazzy, folk rock. The setup is not typical for a four piece band with Tanya on guitar/vocals, Murty on cajón, Bart Kondrat on lead guitar and Maciek (Magic) on harmonica. The band has an unusual, distinctive and original sound which puts them into that ‘can’t get them out of my head‘ category.
