We're pretty sure that you've never heard anything like this! A chaotic and foot-stompin' romp through the world of folk, folk/punk, country, Blues and Pop music. This group of musical friends got together for fun and this is the result. An international mixture of Catalan, English, Irish and French musicians produces some interesting and occasionally quite good tunes but more than that, the audience loves to feel the joy of music that pumps through the veins of this Catalan Supergroup.
The Irlastics AKA The Fantastic Irlastic Band started in 2015 as a Jam session in a small bar in the Seaside town of Sant Feliu de Guixols, Catalunya. The session quickly grew and soon up to 15 Musicians!!!! ( Well, people with musical instruments anyway) were attending, with representation from Catalunya, Spain, France, Ireland and England, along with hordes of spectators. The Jam developed into a show and soon other bars in the area were asking to book The Fantastic Irlastic Band. In 2017 a prestigious Hotel Group asked the Irlastics to take on a weekly residency at 3 of their sites, some members of the Jam session were unable to commit and so a scaled down version took on this challenge which is the band you see today. Anyone who has seen The Irlastics will tell you that they are far from what you would normally expect a Hotel Band to be, the image doesn’t fit, the style doesn’t fit, the music doesn’t fit, but the punters seemed to love it and so did the Hotels, especially when they saw their bar takings quadruple on Irlastics night. I don’t really need to say much more, do I?
Estem bastant segurs que vostè mai ha sentit alguna cosa com això! Un juguesca trepitjant caòtica i el peu a través del món de la folk, folk / punk, la música country i folk / rock. Aquest grup d'amics músics es van reunir per a la diversió i aquest és el resultat. Una barreja internacional de Català, Anglès, Irlandès i músics Francesos produeix alguns temes interessants i de tant en tant bastant bo, però més que això, l'audiència li agrada sentir l'alegria de la música que bomba a través de les venes d'aquest supergrup català.
