Rory always usually made sure of arranging his tours to be back home in Ireland for Christmas & New Year.
Is there any RG tribute bands or any bands at all, playing RORY'S MUSIC over the festive season anywhere??

Rock On for Rory

Cork City
Sat Nov 22nd
Sun Nov 23rd

Gerry Quigley & The Shinkickers will do another long-awaited Rory special feature at Ziggys Rock & Blues Bar Cork on Sat Nov 22nd.
and again at Crane Lane Theatre on Sun Nov 23rd in memory of Rory's christmas gigs as Gerry knows so well he went to every gig in Dublin.
When he was learning to play guitar as a youngster Gerry would listen for hours as he analysed the sound and techniques on every single Rory song and so he really does know Rory's music inside out along with his distinct playing style and no matter what song Gerry is playing, he uses the same guitar as the original artist to you are guaranteed of authentic tone and sound. His collection includes 6 guitars, including his Gibson Les Paul, of course a Strat, Dobro slide, Telecaster, Gibson 135, a mandolin, and a unique double-neck mandola/bouzouki played like you've never heard before!

Not a tribute band, Gerry writes some awesome originals too which they will be playing on the night.
When he was in Australia for 30 years, Dublin born and raised Gerry Quigley loved Rory's music so much that he named the band after a Rory song when he formed The Shinkickers 23 years ago in Australia, which was actually 4 years before Rory died. He's always played a few Rory tunes at every single Shinkickers show for the past 23 years and also made sure all his guitar students learned Rory Gallagher's music. Gerry brought Rory Gallagher to Perth and Western Australia through The Shinkickers and his guitar teaching.

Now based in Cork, Gerry has formed the Irish lineup of his long-running band with 4 other Cork musicians including 2 who have also been with the band in Australia at various times and are also now based in Cork.

This special feature at Ziggy's will include many of your favourite Rory classics along with Gerry's own awesome original blues and classic blues/rock.
I've never heard anybody play so good since I saw Gary Moore or Eric Bell;
You would think it really was Rory up there playing"
are all comment's the band has heard recently since they've been amazing the crowds at their Cork gigs.

For Rory fans its definitely worth the trip to Cork City for this weekend of Rory and Gerry Quigley magic and madness with two amazing shows!

Ziggy's is Cork's Rory Gallagher Bar and the owner is currently expanding the display of Rory Gallagher memorabilia including
a good selection of photos taken in and around Cork City by Ireland's pioneering rock photographer of the 70's Liam Quigley along with a great selection of memorabilia.

Crane Lane Theatre is Corks' award-winning live music venue (IMRO awards 2013) with live music 7 nights a week and like the show at Ziggy's also promises to be an amazing show you'll be talking about for a long time.
