The 4 Of Us
Date: Saturday 15th of July. Doors open 8pm. Adm €15
The Four Of Us has been one of Ireland's favorite rock-pop groups since its formation in Newry in 1988. The early lineup of the group included the three Murphy brothers - Brendan [Vocals & Guitar], Declan [Guitar & Bass Guitar], Paul [Piano & Keyboards]. The brothers had spent their Summers busking in the south of France. The final member of that original lineup was drummer Peter McKinney who had previously played with Katmandu and The Fountainhead. Since then the band has gone through several lineup changes with Brendan and Declan being the only surviving elements.
The band launched its recording career with the single 'I Just Can't Get Enough'. However, it was with the release of their third single, 'Mary' that The Four Of Us really announced its arrival on the scene. The single reached the Irish Top 10 and has remained a national favourite ever since. The band's debut album, 'Songs For The Tempted' topped the chart upon its release and was later named 'Album Of The Year'.
