Look out for Dublin newcomers The Monday Club, who launch their self titled debut EP on April 7th at Dublin’s Tower Records. Led by impressively tonsilled Ger Garrigan, they whip up a classic rock sound on the three tracker, particularly Blind Faith. Not too sure about that name though - RTE Guide

“…a thrilling mixture of great songs and outrageous showmanship.”

Silhouette In The City Lights EP (March '07)



The Monday Club are a 4 piece rock band with a pop sensibility from Dublin. They are made up of Ger Garrigan on Vocals, Michael Fortune on Guitar, Conor Fahy on Bass and Brian Mannion on Drums.

They formed in January 2006. Over the following year The Monday Club progressed rapidly from writing behind closed doors to filling dance floors. They write music to both entertain a crowd and interest the musicians. They started gigging in March 2006 and continued to gig constantly to keep up forward momentum. Their efforts resulted in a headline show in a packed Temple Bar Music Centre which included a special promotional cd of their first recording, “Steal The Show”.

Towards the end of the summer they entered The King Kong Club, a competition running in Pravda. This was to be the crowning achievement of 2006. The early rounds of the competition were based on audience reaction and the guys never failed to take it home. The dazzling showmanship made each night a night that could not be missed. From front man Ger running along bars and dancing on ledges above the crowd to guitarist Michael soloing on the bar and leaping back to the stage they always won the crowd. Right down to the casuals having a drink, the bar staff, the doormen and of course the loyal fan base that had been continually growing since that first gig back in March. Well aware that the show is only part of the package, they clocked up hours and hours in their rehearsal studio, writing and perfecting songs to the highest of standards. They never let anything leave the room until it reached the same caliber as the music they themselves listen to and respect. The fruits of their labour came in December 2006 when they were crowned the winners of The King Kong Club, with judges including the Spiegeltents organizer and Birrs beloved son Mundy. The prize was a recording of an EP, from the studio to the launch including mastering and duplication.

January was spent locked in the rehearsal studio preparing to record. Dinners became sandwiches, the radio became the hum of amps and socializing was the 5 minute coffee break at 9 every night. Every note, beat, lyric and syllable was scrutinized and broken down in order to get the attention of detail necessary to make a successful record.

One year after their first gig The Monday Club launched their debut EP, Silhouette In The City Lights in The Sugar Club. The night was a success with every seat in The Sugar Club filled and a large number of people resorting to standing around the sides. The cd sold extremely well with queues forming of people eager to get their very own copy.

Enjoy The Monday Club responsibly and stay beautiful!
