The BaRLey MOB are a 6 piece group of talented and lively musicians who’s collective influences have fused to create a unique style of music. Their music does not fall neatly into one genre as they deliver a fresh blend of uplifting music embellished and delivered with equal measures of rock riffs, soulful melodies, folk jigs and infectious beats.
With over 350 shows to their credit since forming in 2010, the band have been widely acclaimed for their live performances. Over the last three years they have built a large and growing fan base from playing in the smallest venues to the largest festivals including Electric Picnic, Knockanstockan, Sligo Live, Dublin City Soul Festival and Boomtown Fair(UK) as well as performances on RTE Radio 1, FM104 and Phantom 105.2.
The BaRLey MOB are: Adam Daly, Neil Butler, Andy Moore, John Heraghty, Conor Byrne and Sean Behan
