MUSIC TRAIN FAMILY CONCERTS - Celtic: The Indulgers
w/ Matt Skellenger
The Indulgers formed in Colorado after Dublin-born and raised Irish singer Damien McCarron had completed a solo recording project and decided to settle in the west.
While recording at Alley Studios in Wheat Ridge, McCarron and producer Mike Nile formed a songwriting partnership and created an Irish rock band that continues to explore the boundries of the genre. Mike had returned to Colorado as a member of Randy California's -Spirit- and played with ick Fleetwood's Speed Of Light Band while based in Los Angeles.
Regular gigs at front range and mountain venues and festivals polished the band known for high energy shows and top class original material sending the Indulgers to major festivals in many states across America including, Kansas City Irish Festival, San Francisco Oyster Festival, Chicgago Irish Festival and Irish Fest in Albany, NY.
The flair of Fiddle player Renee Fine flows through the soul crafted songs of the McCarron/Nile, while rythym section Aaron Haywood (Bass) and Cheech Mannone (Drums) add the energy as the band expands to a six piece with the addition of Ryan Bunnell in the spring of 2012 for the release of the seventh album "Whiskey Tonight".
A recent tour of Ireland led to the band appearing in an Irish TV documentary filmed on location in Colorado, detailing immigration thru the ages. The show was developed by legendary Irish rockers Jim Lockhart and Barry Devlin of Horslips, the director behind many U2 videos.
Neale Heywood of Fleetwood Mac and The Lindsey Buckingham Band co-produces The Indulgers CDs and is currently working with the band finishing the upcoming new release.
