Pogueology came together in 2015 with a view to recreating the energy, mayhem and sheer party atmosphere of A Pogues live gig.
The seven-piece Laois based band consist of some of the finest musicians in the area who all share a love of the music of the Celtic/Punk sound that is The Pogues. The band have played many gigs across the country and this year were asked by MCD Promotions to play at the prestigious Trinity Ball in Dublin.
This is a project that was in the pipeline for many years and the band took their time in finding the right musicians that would be suited to the project.
All the Pogues favourites are covered in the set including Streams of Whiskey, Sally McLennane, Fiesta, Fairytale of New York, A Pair of Brown Eyes and Rainy Night in Soho.
The Pogues started in London in 1982 fronted by Shane MacGowan.
The band reached international prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s.
MacGowan left the band in 1991 but the band continued first with Joe Strummer and then with Spider Stacy on vocals before breaking up in 1996.
