Heebie Jeebie’s in The Coachman’s

The Coachman’s in Roscommon is sure to be rocking this weekend as one of Ireland’s finest up and coming musical acts, the Heebie Jeebie’s, are in town, performing live and taking to the stage at 10.30 pm this Saturday night.

  The Heebie Jeebie’s Band are a new and exciting party band catering for all occasions, weddings and corporate events. A five-piece live band blended from a variety of musical backrounds, the Heebie Jeebies offers a wide range of music from middle of the road to current charts with a splash of country and rock n’ roll! But just one goal – to keep the floor full and keep the party bouncing!

  The band is the brainchild of local guitar player Allen Neilan who has a wide range of experience including six years with ‘Mike Denver’, three years with ‘The Bad Ass Boogie Band’, and six years with ‘Dave Lawlor and Nostalgia’. Having played over 300 weddings to date and all kinds of events from two-piece pub gigs all the way to sell out shows at the Helix and numerous TV shows, he believes he knows what keeps the floor full and offers a excellent value in the current economic climate.

 So make sure to come along to the Coachman’s this Saturday night for what promises to be a gig to remember. Miss it miss out!
