Whiskey B4 Breakfast
Whiskey B4 Breakfast started life by happy accident about fifteen years ago.
I was playing the circuit in London and beyond with a brilliant South African singer called Stewart Dixon. We were booked
to play a birthday party but at the last minute Stew couldn't make and I was asked to play the gig with Dennis.....a guitarist
and singer that I had never met!
It sounds quite risky but it was a very Irish party and I was assured that Dennis knew lots of Irish songs. We hit it off big style and on it went from there with the list of London Irish pubs and clubs we've played now being very long indeed!
In recent times we have grown in numbers - the first addition being the indomitable Joe Enright on squeeze-box and bass which is a real privilege!
He plays with Cerys Mathews, Hayley Westenra and a band called 'The Von Traps'. We also extend to a four, five or six piece outfit that includes the gorgeous Una on vocals, whistle and guitar, the hugely talented Neil on fiddle and sword gypsy, Hjordis Moon Badford on drums and percussion.
Regular gigs include:
The Mother Red Cap (Holloway Road - Archway)
The Shanakee (Ealing Broadway)
Jonos (both Ealing common and Ilford)
Dunnings Bar (St. Albans road - Watford)
O'Shay's Bar (Luton)
Alfie's Bar (Luton)
The Church Pub (Muswell Hill)
