The Kings of soulful and sophisticated 80s pop return with the full original line-up!

 

The Grand Social is delighted to announce that The Blow Monkeys will be playing an exclusive Irish-only performance to celebrate the venue's 7th birthday. With hits like 'Digging Your Scene', and 'It Doesn't Have to Be This Way', The Blow Monkeys epitomised the glamour of mid-80s pop at its most graceful and sophisticated. In the band's frontman Robert Howard (aka Dr. Robert), they possessed a tall, charismatic singer who was both camera-friendly and clever, who appeared to be just as much at ease on the catwalk that is pop's conveyor belt as he was penning witty, incisive songs.

 

Jump to 2017 and September sees the release of the band's new album - Wild River - which harks back to a more soulful, funk sound so, while nostalgia may be in the air, Dr. Robert and The Blow Monkeys have their sights firmly on the present.
