Episode 41: Kiss My Arts – The Vibes – Part 1

When I visited Drumshanbo to chat to The Vibes, or at least Leo and Ruairi, two of the six members of the band, I wasn’t expecting anything out of the ordinary. Sitting in a professional recording studio it seemed silly not to avail of the facilities and use the equipment to record the show. Two hours later we realised the time.

Supported by Tawnylust Lodge, Manorhamilton.

Between interrupting mothers, playing AC/DC’s Thunderstruck on the banjo and just forgetting about life outside the studio for a few hours we gather enough for many episodes of the show. I’ve selected the most interesting bits of the discussion and spread them across two shows, today and tomorrow, for your listening pleasure.

From how they got started by accident, smashed the Top 20 Charts and the lessons they’ve learned from 13 years experience in the local and national music scene. We hear their new single “Where I Want To Be” and learn about the stories behind the band.

We talk about the industry and the road blocks for local bands eager to get a foot on the very shaky ladder of the entertainment industry.

We’ll be back again tomorrow for the second half of the interview.
