MAMA MARTIN BAND
Formed in August 2014, The Mama Martin Band, from Dublin Ireland, have been developing a strong following, both online and at their gigs throughout the country. Inspired by the early blues masters and more recent rock icons like Cream and ZZtop, they have melded together an array of musical styles, to create an energetic and melodic mix of pure rock and roll magic.
Front woman Andrea Martin holds the crowds with her unique brand of sass and vivaciousness that helped the band to victory, at the Radio Nova Battle Of The Bands 2014.
Guitarist Mark O Rourke has been compared to Clapton and Peter Green in their younger years, and the funk rock stylings of drummer and percussionist Alan Doyle glues Colm Rooneys solid and brilliant Fender bass lines to an awesome groove that gets many comparisons,from the Allman Brothers to early Fleetwood Mac.
The five-piece Mama Martin Band offers all who watch them an energetic and memorable performance.
The band have released their highly anticipated debut e.p and already have the calender filling up with bookings from established festivals, such as the annual International Rory Gallagher Festival, in Ballyshannon, Co Donegal and of course the Linton Festival.
