Big Generator return to Rockfords

Galway-based band Big Generator return to Rockford’s, Roscommon on Saturday 26th February. The band features Paul Cantillon on vocals and bass guitar; Barry Conboty on lead guitar; Liam Martin on vocals, guitars and keyboards and Alan ‘Mac’ McEvoy on vocals and drums.

After five top twenty hits, two albums, numerous tours in Holland, Germany, England, Sweden and America, they bring their high power show to Rockfords. 

The lads have been on top of the pile for many years now, still the band that all the young newcomers aspire to. Big Generator came into the picture at a time when the live music circuit was a badly wounded animal, and they are in no small part responsible for the thriving scene which is in place today. 

Don’t forget to get yourself along to see Big Generator in Rockford’s, Roscommon on Saturday 26th February.
