A four-piece band from Ireland which got together in 2010. Taking inspiration from 1960s blues and 1970s rock like The Rolling Stones, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, The Yardbirds and Eddie and the Hot Rods they have adapted that to a modern sound. The four young guys, Ross Farrelly (vocals), Josh McClorey (guitar), Pete O’Hanlon (bass), and Evan Walsh (drum), started small just playing gigs around their home town then on to bigger gigs throughout Ireland now they are moving on to shows in different countries around the world.
A live show by The Strypes will be high energy with the setlist comprised of mixture of original and covers of R&B songs. They have also cut their teeth by opening for larger bands around Europe like Arctic Monkeys. The gigging has earned them plenty of praise including from the likes of Sir Elton John who said he thought they were a breath of fresh air. Paul Weller, Dave Grohl and Noel Gallagher have also said they are fans of the band.
