Hot Tamales are an acoustic duo who mix diverse blues, country and americana influences and have earned a reputation throughout northwest Ireland for memorable live performances.
Featuring fine guitar picking and harmony vocals from John McFall (vocals, guitar, harmonica), and Allan Nicholl (vocals, guitars, stomp box, mandolin).
Expect unusual renditions of familiar material from the likes of Hank Williams, Dylan, John Prine and Brownie McGhee, mixed with less well known old-time, pre-war and Hokum blues, and Leon Redbone style selections from the Great American Songbook, all delivered with healthy dollop of self depreciating humour and irreverence.
With a fantastic repertoire of sophisticated jazz standards and swing favourites, The Limavady Big Band Sound brings you an unforgettable swing experience.
Their programme includes music from the days of the big bands of Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Erroll Garner, Duke Ellington right up to big band arrangements of the Beatles and Van Morrison numbers.
The band draws its personnel from Limavady and the wider North Coast area and includes a wide range of age groups.
