Meet Our New Bass Player

Written by Druidstone.

What do you get when you combine Gerry Quigley & The Shinkickers (Ireland touring lineup) with a versatile and talented heavy metal bass player? I'd like you to meet one of our newest members, Denis Coveney.  Denis is from the international touring band Flatline who once played support for Iron Maiden!

Denis' presence in the band is already having an unintentional influence in our sound .. inspiring Gerry to bring back a hint of that Raw Deal magic, you can definitley hear it coming back!  We still have our captivating Shinkickers originals of course, but have a whole new set of classic blues songs chosen to suit our new lead singer, with a heavier blues sound.
