ADELA and the MEANITS
Adela and the Meanits are an original band made up of four members from Ireland and Scotland. They are a frisky, dancy, melodically infectious band. Their sound is a quirky blend of ska, old school rock/pop and gypsy punk, mentioning but a few styles that come together in this band...“I can't think of anyone else that sounds this way…a great accomplishment indeed…What these guys are doing is pretty amazing.” [taxi music] All four musicians are multi-instrumentalists and incorporate vocals, double bass, piano, ukulele, melodica, drums, guitar, accordion and violin into every live performance. Sensational to behold and a festival of music within one band.
Formed in 2009, the Adela and the Meanits have gone on to record and release their debut album 'Kinda Wild' in 2012 which received local and national airplay. They played live on RTE's The John Murray Show and also recorded in Studio Eight for the Dan Hegarty Show. They were the first Irish band to perform in all 32 counties of Ireland within one month (they did it in just 28 days). They have played numerous festivals throughout the country...Indiependence, Electric Picnic, Castle Palooza, Knockinstockin, Helium, Le Cheile, Milk, Happy Valley along with many, many more.
The band are currently in studio recording a new single and getting set for a tour of the UK and France starting Oct 27th 2014.
