After a great couple of gigs in An Bróg and Gallagher’s in the past couple of weeks, Rattlesnake County are pleased to announce some more good news. Starting on Tuesday 4th February (tomorrow), members of the band will be running a brand new fortnightly jam session in El Fenix, Union Quay, Cork.
El Fenix (previously The Phoenix, a well-known and much loved gigging venue) opened a few months ago, adding to the cluster of pubs on Union Quay that are renowned for live music. Some members of Rattlesnake County actually began their gigging careers in the old Phoenix, so it’s brilliant to see the place revitalised and open for business again.
El Fenix are getting a lot of live music up and running, which is good news for the musicians of Cork of course, and we’re delighted to be getting involved. They even have a piano tuned and ready to go!
The session will be an open acoustic jam session, which means no fiddling around with microphones, and absolutely anyone of any musical persuasion and skill level is free to hop in and join us. We’ll generally be playing a mix of classic rock, country and folk, but we’re open to anything else you want to throw in.
The session starts at 9:30 pm tomorrow night (Tuesday 4th February), and will run every fortnight from then on. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates.
Finally, here’s a taste of what you can expect to find in El Fenix tomorrow night. See you there!
