Tributeband "A Taste Of Rory"

Due to the tremendous interest in the reissue of the late Rory Gallagher's back catalogue, a new Dublin based band has been formed in his honour. The name of the band is A TASTE OF RORY, and includes the cream of Irish rock:

On guitar / vocals is Deko Kennedy ( ex Whole chicken band).

Deko has backed many names throughout his career ( e.g. Van the man), and his note-for-note renditions of Rory's classics have to be seen ( & heard!) to be believed.

On bass is Ken Murphy

Pat has played with them all - from holding down the bass in 'Talk To Strangers' - (featuring ex- Thin Lizzy drummer Brian Downey) to Doug Brockie ( ex- Johnny Winter band).

On keyboards is Neil McConnon

Neil has played with Andrew Strong, The Business, Don Baker, plus a host of other great blues/rock bands.

On drums is Jonathan Merriman

Aiden is a much sought after session drummer, but has been known to strut his stuff on the stage with such diverse acts as Tom Jones , Chad Smith (Red Hot Chilli Peppers), Taylor Hawkins ( Foo Fighters), & Mark Richardson (Feeder).
A TASTE OF RORY have played all the major venues in Ireland ( e.g. Vicar St., The Olympia etc.), garnering a loyal ( and sizeable!) following of R.G. fans, both old and new.

The set is a 'best of' Rory Gallagher - everything from 'Same Ol Story' from the TASTE days to 'Walk on Hot Coals' from the classic 'Irish tour 74' era, including an acoustic set, plus originals in the Gallagher style.
