Shebeen Shebeen were formed in Glasgow in 1997 & are arguably the finest Irish Rebel band presently playing on the Republican / Celtic circuit. Their first album, "Volume 1" (funnily enough!) was released in November of that year (in aid of Tyrone P.D.F). Having toured extensively throughout the british mainland, the Occupied 6 Counties & the Irish Republic they soon built up a loyal support amongst the Irish Diaspora both at home & abroad. The next album, "Disband The R.U.C", was quickly followed by "Live In Creggan", recorded in St. Marys' Centre, Creggan, Derry City on Easter Sunday 1999. Shortly afterwards the band embarked on their first tour of Norway, where their inimitable brand of in-your-face Rebel music met with rave reviews in the Norwegian press. "Do You Really Think It's Over" is their latest offering to date & a mix of studio & live performances. The line up has changed somewhat over the years with original members Alan & Timmy having been joined by Padraig (Saoirse), Paul, Magintie & Podgie
Gary Og Gary first came to prominence as the singer of Eire Og, formed in Glasgow, Scotland in the early 1990s, was a modern Irish rebel band, which has toured the United Kingdom, Ireland, Europe and the USA extensively throughout the mid - late nineties.
What made them unique was their introduction of the marching drums to their music, a style that has subsequently been copied by many bands of this genre ever since. It gave them an unmistakable and uncompromising sound that became the soundtrack of an entire generation during a period of civil strife prior to the IRA ceasefire of the late nineties.
Gary has toured extensively in Europe,America and Australia and Damien Dempsey credits him for his interest in ballads
