Maghaberry high security prison in
The Ned Kelly Band
The Ned Kelly Band's new album Angry Men is now listed on itunes.
The band are excited that they are now able to reach a wider
audience now able to download their music worldwide. Ned Kelly
says 'Someone told me after a recent gig that the world needed
to hear our songs and I suppose this is the first step in
achieving this!' The band is passionate about what they have to
say through their music, believing that Jesus is the only hope
for our world.
The Ned Kelly Band, based in Banbridge, Co. Down, was formed 10
years ago and have recently produced their fourth album Angry
Men. The past year has been a transition period for the band
with a new line-up and hopes for the new year are high. The band
have been in the studio during the summer '06 and recorded 14
new songs and they are now ready to play gigs again and hope to
take their music to a wider audience.
A week-long tour of the French Riviera is planned in May from
Marseille to Nice following the success of last year's one night
stand. The band's latest venture was to play a gig behind bars
in Maghaberry high security prison in December '06 which was a
first for any band. The band were overwhelmed by the response
from the gig both from the prisoners and wardens and have been
asked to return for another one in January this year.
As a band we all believe in this new album. We have something to
say about our society, lifestyle and issues that affect us. We
believe people are conditioned by what goes on around them and
we hope the lyrics will make people take notice of what we have
to say. There are a few protest songs on the new album which we
hope are thought provoking and challenging.
Get along and see the Ned Kelly Band Live in the Island Hall,
