Event Info

Eamonn Flynn was born into a musical family in Dublin, Ireland. He first came to prominence playing Hammond organ and piano on the 12 million selling movie soundtrack The Commitments, and toured with Commitments singer Andrew Strong. Now living in San Francisco, California he has gone on to record and tour worldwide with artists including Michael Franti and Spearhead, Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King, Elvin Bishop, Bernard Purdie, Grant Green Jr. Coco Montoya, Michelle Shocked, Pee Wee Ellis, Donald Harrison, Maria Muldaur, Finbar Furey, Honey Island Swamp Band, Tony Lindsay (Santana), The Black Family and a 10 year stint with Meters drummer Zigaboo Modeliste. Eamonn’s original music has been featured on TV shows such as Ugly Betty and Moonlight. In 2017 he released a new solo album. Entitled “The Irish Channel”, it reflects a unique blend of Irish and American influences. He is currently playing these songs live with an original band featuring some of the top players in the Bay Area music scene. Joining Eamonn for this show will be: Jeff Tamelier on guitar (Tower of Power, Cold Blood) Kevin Hayes on drums (Robert Cray, BB King, Van Morrison) Don Bassey on bass (Danny Click, Volker Strifler, Liz Kennedy, Kevin Russell) Todd Denman on uillean pipes (San Francisco Symphony, Mick Moloney) John Ward on acoustic guitar (Soulstice) Plus dancers from The Whelan School of Irish Dance Oxford English Dictionary: Definition of hooley in English: Hooley (NOUN plural hooleys) (Irish) i(nformal) ‘A wild or noisy party’

“Uillean piper Todd Denman and B-3 player Eamonn Flynn are mirror images: Todd an American who grew up with funk and R&B and mastered traditional Irish piping, Eamonn an Irish who grew up with trad Irish music and later mastered funk and R&B Hammond. Soulstice is an unlikely fusion of R&B, gospel and Irish music that sounds so natural and obvious it makes you wonder where this music has been all this time. Denman and Flynn have sensitively and ingeniously reharmonized a host of trad Irish favorites, with hauntingly affecting results. I can’t describe how strongly (or why) it feels like home to me. Even if it doesn’t affect you the same way, it’s delightful and worthy of your attention.” – Ken Hughes, Keyboard Magazine
