Plaza Real : The Music of Weather Report

Plaza Real : The Music of Weather Report

Tuesday, 30 April 2019, 8.30pm

Bassist Barry Donohue leads ‘Plaza Real’, a band dedicated to playing the music of 70/80’s jazz fusion group Weather Report.

Expect trance inducing grooves, high energy explosive solo sections, some filthy grooves, mellow open simmering passages, bouncy grooves, balls-to-the-wall rock-outs, soaring melodies, sexy grooves, outer-space grooves, melodies again! Many many beautiful melodies played on top of mostly open and interactive groove based passages.

This is a really exciting project for Barry, as it pays tribute to a very special moment in his life - the moment his father Frank gifting him with ‘Heavy Weather’, one of Weather Report’s most highly regarded albums, featuring Jaco Pastorius on electric bass. That album made a man-bass-player out of an innocent 13-year-old Barry.

He is joined by good friends and exceptional musicians
Chris Engel on soprano sax,
Darragh William O'Ceallaigh on synths and many forms of the piano
Shane O'Donovan on drums
Eamonn Cagney on percussion
