Nigel Mooney is no stranger to The High Tide Club and played for us in Sept 2014. The audience were so appreciative of Nigels extraordinary guitar playing & sumptous voice that he was given two standing ovations. He left the audience wanting more so we promised to bring him back and we are so proud to be hosting him once again. Nigel is widely regarded as Ireland's leading jazz singer and guitarist. A charismatic figure on the Dublin jazz and blues scenes since the early 1980's, his Gripewater Blues Band spearheaded the blues movement in Ireland and drew many fans of both jazz and the blues.
A self-taught musician, Mooney was influenced by the blues from an early age and his hard-bop style of guitar playing is expressive and melodic with a bluesy groove. He possesses a warm and rich tenor voice and has an almost flawless sense of pitch
Nigels son Charlie aged just 27 has recently completed a 4 year degree in jazz guitar in Newpark School of Music. He has been playing as a solo act singing and playing jazz guitar for a number of years and also leads his own jazz quartet in various venues in Dublin. He has also accompanied various singers on the Dublin jazz scene.
Together they make up 'Mooney & Son' and we are so looking forward to hearing their combined talents at The High Tide Club on Fri 6th May. Doors open @ 8pm. Tickets €12
