Bio

The band entered 2011 on a wave of media attention following a surprise rave review by New York Times writer, Matt Gross. A few months earlier Mr. Gross was ambling through the Calvinists’ local town of Bantry when the bands’ poster caught his attention. Drawn in by the unusual name (a slightly controversial anti-homage to religious reformist and general party pooper, John Calvin) he decided to check them out. He certainly wasn’t disappointed; “They were awesome: straight-up rock with a country accent… …the whole room hummed with enthusiasm and pride. I was part of something. Maybe this was a moment that, years from now, I’d remember as a big one."

The attention and saw them propelled from the local circuit into the national arena with live performances on television and radio.

Taidhg Burke (bass and vocals), Noel Maguire (guitar and vocals), Frank Wieler (banjo, guitar and vocals) and Darragh Coakley (Cajon, drums and vocals).
