ENNIS band 39 Shots is to progress to the national Irish Youth Music Award competition in Dublin in April after they were voted best band at Clare Youth Service on Saturday.
39 shots will now go on to represent Clare at the National Irish Youth Music Awards in April. The band, which is made up of Dalian Rynne, Oisín O’Cualain, John Hennessy, Stephen Molloy and Cormac Hennessy, performed at a selection night last Saturday in Clare Youth Service.
39 Shots will have to battle it out against over 20 other acts from around Ireland at the prestigious Irish Youth Music Award in Dublin, where the winning band will be given the opportunity to produce an album recorded and mixed by some of Ireland’s top producers and engineers. They will also benefit from the knowledge and advice of Ireland’s most respected music professionals.
In the run-up to the IYMAs, 39 Shots will be supported by an entourage of local musicians who will work to promote the band. The finals will be judged both by 39 shots’ performance in Dublin and the band’s backing team’s work at home.
The band will play a number of local gigs in Clare, dates and times for this have yet to be fixed.
