The Live Sessions

The Live Sessions will run every Wednesday in the all new “UPSTAIRS” at McLoughlins bar Dun Laoghaire’s newest live music venue.

This is a showcase night for acts from around Ireland to come and perform and promote their own material as well as their unique interpretations of some well know covers.

The Live Sessions want to help promote new Irish Music so all Acts will be filmed on the night and the best performances posted on the “Live Sessions” Official page.

They aim to give people something more when they come out, with Free Admission, Free hot Food, Drink Specials and the Finest musical entertainment.

tomorrow night (Wed 15th) is the official launch so what are you waiting for? Drop in for some Free music and all the trimmings!

When the both organisers – Ste Greene and James O’Reilly was asked, Why do you want to put on a night of music in Dun Laoghaire? The answer from both of them was simple .

“We want the old sessions back in the town. We remember when all different types of music could be heard, seven nights a week in the town. People were valued for coming out and supporting their favorite singers and bands. Somewhere along the way it all got lost, and now real singers and musicians are not being connected to real music fans.

It’s all become too expensive to go out for most people. This is a real shame as musicians and music lovers are not getting together to have the great nights we used to. These were the nights that made Dun Laoghaire special. That’s why we are doing this night. We want to bring the music back to our town, and give the people value when they come out to support it.

For the Artists, we provide a platform to play their music with quality sound and recording equipment. For the Patrons it’s a place to come and experience real Live music in a brand new setting. We have: FREE Admission. Drink specials. Student discounts. FREE Food platters for all our valued friends. See you all there.”
