About

Hi, we're Dem Fools, and we're very pleased to meet you!
Winners of the Music Review Unsigned Awards 2012 - Best Ska/Reggae/Alternative Act
Dem Fools been gigging since late 2011 and have built up a fine reputation in that short space of time.
Dem Fools draw their inspiration from their vast influences through many musical genres and bring everything together to create a unique and original sound with an unrelenting energy that permeates every soul.
"You can't help but move!" - Carol Dooley, Radio Nova

Since being given the front page spread in the Music Review Unsigned magazine and selected as Unsigned Artist of the month in November 2011, Dem Fools have been on a quest to deliver stronger performances at every show and build a foundation around which they can grow and develop their unique sound.
Acclaimed live performances at numerous Dublin venues have drawn invitations to perform at many small festivals and venues countrywide, including Sibin, Le Cheile, the Radharc festival, the Soul Festival and the Carlow Arts festival. This culminated in the band being invited to play on the world famous Salty Dog Stage at Electric Picnic 2012.

A Salty ship-mate, one Jerry Fish and his mighty Skeleton Crew, also invited Dem Fools to share a stage at the Workman's Club and following this "emotional" showcase, their debut single "Segue" was released on December 10th, having recently signed to Irish label Ruby Music. (www.rubymusic.ie)
A single launch night like no other, with an eclectic performance from Kadri bellydance to accompany their signature tune Poor Elise, went down a storm and two weeks later Dem Fools won the best Ska/Reggae/Alternative gong at the first ever Music Review Unsigned awards.
With plans to hit the studio in early January 2013 to record a 6 track EP, Dem Fools are ready to take 2013 by storm.
"Like an airplane ready to take off!" - Keiron Black (promoter)
Come to a show, see the band live. Check out their music on Soundcloud or Breaking tunes, and turn up the volume on your speakers!
"My favourite act so far, this band can really play" - Sir Bob Geldof (on the song "Not As Hard as it Looks", youbloom song competition, 2011)
"Dem Fools ooze star stage presence... There's a buzz about them that won't go away" - Dave Diebold - Evening Herald
