After Dark

Exhilarating, exciting, engaging, evoking – these are just some of the words used by their many fans and friends alike to describe the After Dark experience. And this superb reputation rings through every performance of this award winning band.

A first time attendee to an After Dark performance should prepare to be amazed. The band have that certain “je ne sais quoi” that evokes the audience and attracts their return time and time again. The quirky rhythms and mix of soulful sounds, eclectic classics and swinging hits will have you on your feet instantaneously.

Over the past few years, the After Dark stage show has been enhanced by adding new members to keep the ambience fresh and contemporary. A combination of unrivalled musical talent, close harmonies, incredible vocal ability, energy and the desire to entertain makes this a spectacular not to be missed.

One if the best party bands to ever grace the Irish music scene, After Dark blow a breath of fresh air into an already congested market. And with a combination of over four decades of experience between them, these four passionate musicians really have to be heard to be believed. Founder of the band Ciaran Duffy describes the performance as extremely enjoyable and entertaining.
