Like most bands, Dem Fools were born of best friends jammin...
Now 5, and driven by their unique musical influences and style, these musicians come together to form something sui generis, something to behold and to descry...
"My favourite act so far, this band can really play" - Sir Bob Geldof
Having played across the country, cultivating the band as they go, Dem Fools reached memorable heights, playing at some of the biggest festivals on the circuit, including Electric Picnic (Salty Dog Stage), Body & Soul, The Dublin City Soul Festival, Facefest, Le Cheile and many more.
Appearences in venues like Roisin Dubh in Galway, Whelan's in Dublin, The Workman's Club, JJ Harlows in Roscommon, Spirit Store in Dundalk and so many more, have brought the guys together as a unit, and have helped to forge a deep understanding of what it takes to be the best band they can be.
In early 2014, the band met Ray Heffernan (Co-writer of Robbie William's hit, Angels) at the Zodiac Sessions in Bruxelles and Ray invited the band to Italy via his new project, Gigswig.
Joining forces with a fantastic young band from Milan, Rumor, they toured Northern Italy for a week, playing 6 major venues in 6 days, including a headline show with local hero Sarah Stride.
They in turn brought Rumor to Ireland and in turn forged a friendship with Italian producer and drummer, Sergio Quagliarella (Kabikoff).
In October 2014, the band flew Sergio to Ireland to produce and record their debut EP.
Ais and Mooney then flew to Milan to record vocals and the EP was mixed and edited by Sergio and Diego Cattaneo.
The Debut EP is due for release on April Dem Fools Day, 2015
