Kormac’s Big Band

This gig was my first chance to see Kormac with a full band in an indoor venue, and I loved it. Their new material is a bit of a departure from the Big Band sound of old, but highly enjoyable.

Kormac’s Big Band are one of those unique acts that are almost impossible to explain to people, as I found to my detriment that night. Bringing a friend who I really thought would enjoy the show, but who really didn’t, did take a bit of the gloss off the evening, but sure what can you do?

Daithi at the Button Factory

And my final gig of 2012 – and a record breaking (well, for me anyway!) 43rd gig in a year – was DJ Kormac’s Big Band supported by Daithi. Another furnace like night in the Button Factory, but that didn’t detract from what have got to be the creators of some of the happiest music I’ve heard in a long time. I don’t think anyone could go to see them and leave in a bad mood. Here’s hoping I get to catch both acts again in 2013.

Django Django at Body and Soul

#15 The end of June brought another festival – number four for 2012 Body and Soul. And yet another washout! The festival itself was an eclectic mix of music and arts, which was marred by the muck that managed to get everywhere, leading to flooded carparks and a real mess of a campsite.

Don’t let this imply that I didn’t enjoy Body and Soul because I really did – the line-up had a few acts that I knew and a few more that I now know and love. The massive highlight for me was Django Django who I had missed at the Grand Social (I played ticket fairy and gave away my two tickets to some randomer on Facebook).
