The Hooks

-The Hooks are one of the most exciting bands in San Francisco at the moment.

The Irish transplants have made the bay area their home.

The Hooks released their first album on vinyl “Everything Is Golden” with much interest from Japan, The US and Europe.

“The Hooks…is a magical charged-up power pop exemplified by their self-released EP “10,000 Feet”. It's loaded with bright, dueling guitars.” Duncan Scott Davidson – SF Chronicle

Anthemic Irish balladeers, the name says it all: they have the hooks (and the looks) indeed, and in spades. With a nod to the Kinks, and the Clash, their joyful, bratty call to arms is infectious and stays with you long after that last Guinness has been quaffed”.“

“The Hooks forge their own galloping new hybrid of Irish…they do not disappoint, and sound fresh and original”.

The Hooks have cultivated a new sound for their forthcoming album ‘Social Climbing’
Recorded at famed Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA.

The album is a hook-laden extrospective comment on todays world containing a myriad of colors and sounds.

-ONOFF are a 3 piece Rock n Roll band hailing from Ireland who are currently based in California. The band have been touring up and down the west coast of the U.S while recording their new album at Tone Freq. in San Jose, California which is set for release later in the year and will be backed up with the guys touring the West Coast of America. This is the first time ONOFF have recorded in the U.S and with the album being mixed and mastered in the infamous District Studios in San Jose, they are extremely proud of their best material to date.

One of their highest accolades so far was their successful debut European album "Don't Take Our Word For It" which saw them on the cover of major music magazines across Europe. The release was supported by 12 Headline tours of Europe including shows in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland, England, France and a bunch of summer European Festival Tours. The album was received unanimously well across the European media with rave reviews right across the board. Their powerful catchy songs, along with their intense live shows show why these tours were a huge success. When they returned home to Ireland, ONOFF were awarded the title of "Best Unsigned Irish Band" in a public vote by leading Irish music magazine HOTPRESS.
