New Youtube Channel

Written by The Shinkickers.

Our original Shinickers Youtube channel was completely deleted after our unfortunate change of management in 2012.  Luckily for the band, our website admin at Druidstone Media had taken regular backups of the best Youtube videos and was able to create the new band Youtube channel very quickly and easily, and without any fuss.

The Official Shinkickers Youtube channel is now http://youtube.com/theshinkickersband with the best of the original youtube videos, and some extras too!

The guys in the band would like to say a big thank-you to our awesome website admin for thinking ahead and saving the day (and the Youtube videos!) it's great to have you on the team and working for us behind the scenes!

Here is what our website admin had to say about the incident:

"In the I.T. world there is no such thing as too many backups. You never know what could happen to your data. So I always backup everything of any value, and I knew the Youtube videos are valuable data which can never be replaced. So I just backed them up when ever I did the website backups.  Although I never predicted that all of the band's Youtube vidoes and the entire Youtube channel would be lost in this manner, at least I was well prepared for it.  It's just part of doing my job, data backups are an industry standard.  Any other IT professional would have done the same.

Change is in the Air

The Shinkickers were founded in 1991 in Perth, Western Australia where they have played their unique mix of classic blues, rock and celtic for a mammoth 21 years.

Shinkickers guitarist and co-founder Gerry Quigley is returning home to Ireland at the end of 2012 to promote his new instrumental album so on Saturday August 26th the band will play their last gig with the current lineup. 

August 26th 2012 also marks the day which the band says thank-you and farewell to their Co-Manager/Roadie/Promotions Manager of the last 6 years as they begin an exciting new era!
