Pontious Pilate & The Naildrivers
Playing the length and breadth of the country to rave reviews for over 15 years, the now 9 piece band Pontious Pilate & The Naildrivers complete with brass section, are coming to Dundalks famed Spirit Store. Fronted by Dundalks own Sean McDonnell, The Naildrivers have shared the stage with such luminaries as The Undertones, Bad Manners and The Selecter, The Naildrivers energize audiences playing the ska and punk music of late seventies and early eighties (and a few of their own besdies). Bands like The Specials, Madness, The Jam, and The Clash come to life in the hands of The Naildrivers. The music they play can be described by many people in many different ways; ska, rock, punk, whatever, but at the end of the day it's just good music that's fun to dance and go wild to, as can be seen at any of their gigs, where both the band and the audience end up in a lather of sweat, smiles and satisfied exhaustion, each giving it their all. In fact, more often than not, the band end up in the audience!
