Join us at ‘CIRCUS SIDESHOW’ this Friday, a bespoke Festival Club full of pop-up performances, amazing music by DJ Will Softly and Galway’s Big Jelly, 5×5 acts, circus decor and some wonderful surprises! Also featuring a new presentation by Roxana Kuwen – a world premiere. All powered by Funktion-One sound system.
5×5 is a support programme to give new contemporary circus work a platform in Ireland, to help new work escape from studios and rehearsal spaces and break free on stage. A new initiative from the National Circus Festival Ireland 2017, 5×5 offers five artists the opportunity to present five minutes of new, unperformed material in front of supportive audiences. Come and marvel at how much can happen in five little minutes, Friday November 10th, The Grand Hotel Tralee, 10 pm.
Get to the roots of Ska and Rock Steady music with nine-piece Galway outfit Big Jelly!
Formed in the summer of 2014 by several members from well known local acts The Timbertramps, My Fellow Sponges and Mikey and the Scallywags, their aim was simple: Get the audience on the dancefloor. “Incorporating a lush five-piece brass section, Big Jelly can lay good claim to be Galway’s most danceable band – they just get a crowd moving, instantly. Their slice of Jamaican reggae ska will be a good show.” Connaught Tribune. If you don’t find yourself dancing when these guys are on then you might want to ask a friend to check your pulse.
