Tramore, County Waterford
TOUCAN are the explosive ten-piece funk-pop ensemble blasting out a blend of feel-good, contagiously funky soul and pop music.
With irresistible guitar licks, dazzling brass hooks, a tightly knit rhythm section and a silky-smooth vocal blend, the band serve up quite a sound.
After releasing their debut single, We Fell for Miles and their debut EP, they've racked up over a million Spotify streams, with huge listenership in the UK, the US and Australia. Following sold out dates across Ireland and the UK in early 2019, the band went on to play support slots for Nile Rodgers & CHIC in Dublin and for the Average White Band at the Royal Albert Hall. They spent the Summer playing on the Irish festival circuit and finished it by playing to a packed out Electric Arena at Electric Picnic 2019.
They finished 2019 with a UK tour, a new EP release and to finish out the year they put on their biggest show to date in The Academy, Dublin.
