Staff Party are a 6-piece indie-rock/dance-punk band based in Cork, Ireland. The band consists of Jamie Kierans (Vocals), Jake O’ Driscoll (Guitar), Daniel Maguire (Guitar), Christopher Hockey (Bass), Alexa Newall (Keyboard) and Jack O’ Hanlon (Drums).
Staff Party burst onto the Irish music scene in Spring 2022 with a sold-out show in An Spailpin Fanach, Cork. In the following months, the band made their stamp on the local scene with a series of high-energy, sell-out shows in various venues.
After the success of their live performances, the group took to the studio to work on their first single. Having recorded, produced and mixed the material by themselves, Staff Party released their debut single ‘Solo’ on September 22nd 2022, along with a remix of the track created by Jake.
Initially, indie-rock was the core influence for Jamie's songwriting, but the band shifted the writing into a direction more inspired by dance beats and heavier guitars, creating their unique, modern, dance-punk sound.
However, their ethos is just as important as their sound. Staff Party want to have fun. They want to make music that is dedicated to having a good time. They want to dance, sing and shout.
“There seems to be quite a lot of sad music being released in the world today, and we want to do what we can to put a bit of joy out there. And that’s our mission statement. We’ll do everything we can to have a good time, and you’re always welcome to join us.” - Jamie.
