Time & Location
About The Event
A Four Piece Power Funk Rock band who are influenced by Vulfpeck, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Republic of Loose and other heavy hitting funk bands.
Collectively coming together to create some funky and abnormal instrumental songs and tease out a few lyrical masterpieces.
Originally forming in late 2015 and the line-up consisted of Ben Mulligan on Lead Guitar, Robert Arnold on Bass Guitar and Stephen Shanley on Drums. The project began as a getaway for the trio to embrace their instruments and gel together as a band. The Band appeared at various local shows as well as The Word Stage at Electric Picnic.
Soon after the quest for a new name began. In a turn of events the band named themselves ‘Bobby & the Blunts’. The Blunts played their first show under the name at Electric Picnic 2017.
A late comer to the party, Robbie Burzawa joined the band as a rhythm/lead guitarist thus making the trio turn into a quartet. The debut gig came sooner than expected, 3 weeks in as a newly formed band, opening up for Dr.MindFlip.
Ever since the debut, the band have been finding themselves Headlining venues such as Whelans, The Grand Social and The Underground, as well as Columbia Bar and other numerous venues around the Eastside of Ireland.
They have performed alongside some of Ireland’s greatest acts, including The Blizzards, Brave Giant,Cronin, The Deep Funk Project, Fallen Lights and Mik Pyro.
