Steve Argüelles + Morla - Thursday June 11th

Steve Argüelles + Morla Thursday June 11th @ 8.30pm

Steve Argüelles [solo drum set]
Drummer, producer, record label boss. Born in the Beat Boom, still going beat boom. The Beat, that moment of perfect tone and timing, syncopated, right between when you most and least expect it. He keeps his toms tuned low and they have that big boom. A restless experimenter and ravenous consumer of musical alternatives.

Morla [Seán Óg/Simon Jermyn]
All About Jazz describes this duo as "undeniably powerful and at times beautiful improvisation". Fresh from performing at the Foligno Jazz Festival, Messers Óg and Jermyn are at the top of their game - passionate improvised music.

Bottlenote is a collective of Dublin's most interesting musicians working in improvised, jazz and creative music. We put on our own performances, release music and make Dublin a safer place for what we do.
