"Rock of All Ages"
Saturday 7th March 2020
2:00pm - The Studio
The National Concert Hall has teamed up with Garageland for a special afternoon of original music from young bands aged 14 to 19.
“Due to a variety of reasons, mostly outside of their control, rock music venues have difficulty in staging All Ages Shows," says Dermot Lambert of Garageland "so this is an important step from the NCH, and one which we hope will create a regular new outlet for this age group and their fans, of which there are many."
Presented by Garageland in association with The National Concert Hall, IMRO, Mezzo Music Academy and Sound Training College.
This is an alcohol free event.
Dazed are a 4 piece rock band from Dublin who formed in late 2018. With an average age of only 16 they have already accomplished a catalogue of original songs and a handful of live shows.
Dominic Noctor, Seamus O Ciosain, Xochitl Kiernan and Jake Brennan, who got together through their love of music and bands, in Newpark Comprehensive Secondry school, have already recorded with legendary producer Gavin Glass who produced the number 1 David Keenan and Lisa Hannigan.
