The Kids Are Alright, Meet, Sisteray

sister ray1

Just a few days ago , I was in a conversation regarding my thoughts on the latest group of kids coming from The US and The UK. to sum it up, I am amazed at how the newest generation is adding a new touch to some old sounds. From bands on Burger Records amping up some version of punk Beach Boys to the latest group of Bands from the UK , kicking it back to the early Stones and Small Faces. Today we meet Sisteray, already receiving airplay on the BBC, and starting to gather up some serious press on the way towards releasing their EP on February 17th. The Musicianship is very good, Fenders are kicking up some bluesy vibes, drum stick twirling before they hit, holding their guitars at the right height . She Likes The Drama has the makings of an international hit. I’m looking for Sisteray to be part of the next British Invasion that is just about getting ready to launch. They come from a long line of mods’ that have impressed us before ,listen to Sisteray feel the rhythm get swept up in the cadence , it’s like the Stones meet Oasis. Big shoes to fill indeed, but hey, the kids are alright….

Hi our name is….

And our sound might be best described as….

Rock ‘N’ Roll/Mod Revival

We are….
Niall Rowan (Vocal/Guitars), Dan Connolly (Guitar), Mike Hanrahan (Bass), Ryan ‘Peanut’ Connolly (Drums)

We are originally from…..

The first time we met was…..

Dan and Ryan are brothers. Dan met Mike through a job a few years ago. The band met Niall when we put an ad out for a singer a couple of years ago

We knew we were going to be a Band when………

For a while now. We’ve always loved Rock ‘N’ Roll music and always wanted to be in a band but it’s all about circumstances. Everybody just started taking their music seriously at the same time and the band was formed. It wasn’t long until we had our first gig from there

Before starting the band we were employed as…….

Shop workers, handymen, labourers… we still all work jobs now!

The first song we wrote was…….

Hard to say as we’ve been writing for years. Echoes and War on the Floor were the first songs we played as a band

It’s about……

One’s about being young, free and living for it and the other’s about dance floor mayhem!

What we are currently listening to….

Jake Bugg, Temples, Miles Kane, bit of Yardbirds, the new Primal Scream album is class, some old Hendrix stuff and a bit of T-Rex at the moment

For fun we like to…..

Smoke, play footie, watch footie, drink… we also like seeing other bands when we get the chance

The one thing we want you to remember while your listening to us……

That Rock ‘N’ Roll is still alive and kicking


From us in 2014
