The Hooks
-from San Francisco, CA
-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 punked-up power pop exemplified by their self-released EP “10,000 Feet”. It's loaded with bright, dueling guitars and unforgettable tunes.” 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”.

“ Combining the defiant spat-out lyrical style and songwriting craft; the energetic agit–pop-double slap drums and bass hovering above: the ghost of Joe Strummer, and a dash of Paul Weller’s mod, femm-y charm”.

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

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

The Quiet Men
-from San Francisco, CA
-The Quiet Men are an Irish-style rock band from San Francisco. Original songwriting fusing Irish-style music with modern driving folk, rock and Americana.

The General
-from San Francisco, CA
-The General is an Americana folk collective from San Francisco. Starting in the early 2000’s the group has continued to evolve with lineup iterations that span acoustic focused sets into more layered studio efforts. Expect harmonized vocals and catchy riffs with textures ranging from emo ballads to alt country to Irish folk vibes. Ultimately, it’s an experience that puts a good time out, over taking too much time out of your day.
