Bio

Pumping out some of the best blues, classic rock, spine-tingling originals with a hint of celtic magic are Gerry Quigley & The Shinkickers, who in 2015 are celebrating their 24th anniversary.

Formed in Perth, Western Australia in 1991, some 4 years before Rory had passed away, this is the first and original Shinkickers band named after the classic Rory Gallagher song.  So much is Gerry's respect for Rory and his music, Gerry and his band have always played at least one Rory Gallagher song at every show for the past 24 years.

After 30 years touring and recording in Western Australia, Gerry Quigley is now based in Cork, Ireland where the setlist has grown due to local demand to include even more great Rory Gallagher tracks.  Although the band is fast gaining a reputation in Cork for their Rory Gallagher music, don't expect a pure tribute band - you'll also hear plenty of those spine-tingling originals and classic blues/rock you've come to know and expect from Gerry Quigley over the years.

With his eclectic collection of 7 or 8 guitars and other things with strings including his "No.1" - Gibson Les Paul; Fender Stratocaster; Gibson 135; Dobro slide guitar; Telecaster; Mandolin and a unique Double-neck two-in-one Mandola/Bouzouki, Gerry Quigley & The Shinkickers will mesmerise you with such a great variety of blues/rock and originals it really is like having 7 or 8 different bands in one show!

So come along and find out why so many venue owners and members of the audience are saying that Gerry Quigley is the best rock and blues guitarist they've heard in Ireland since Gary Moore, Eric Bell or Rory Gallagher ... prepare to be captivated!
