Shy Mascot live in The Sound House
Shy Mascot Return with Headline Gig at the Sound House Joined by Prominent Support Acts
Shy Mascot, Dublin based five-piece band who’s sound combines elements of funk, jazz, and hip hop, return with a headline show at the Sound House on November 27th. The lineup is packed with Dublin Hip-Hop talent, and the night will also feature Craig Cooney, Jeorge II, GG Carma & Edgy V, and Jordan Wilson.
Shy Mascot has an undeniable old-school hip hop sound, while also being audibly blues and jazz-influenced. This “versatile quintet weaves between melodious, ethereal spaces, and deep, filthy grooves”- (Shy Mascot). The rhythm section, a dynamic trio led by Keith Tobin, lay a strong foundation for intricate and storytelling rhymes from Jamel, who commands the role of MC with ease. Fiadh Rua Gregg’s soulful vocals contrast beautifully overtop, completing the package of a band who has wowed audiences across the country, playing venues from Knockanstockan to Wigwam.
The gig is hosted by Fluttertone Promotions and will feature sets from some up and coming artists in the hip-hop scene:
