About me:
Arighty, we're bang smack in the middle of Bundoran, behind us is the Atlantic...sometimes mild, sometime raging waters...beautiful either way...infrontof us is the main street full of wandering tourists, wandering locals both of which wander through our doors and never look back...hee hee evil laugh! BUNDORAN HAS LONG BEEN KNOWN AS IRELAND'S PREMIER SURFING TOWN & IN RECENT YEARS SURFERS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD HAVE VISITED THE TOWN IN SEARCH OF PERFECT SURF BUT IF THE SURF GODS EVER FAIL WE ALWAYS BLESS OUR VISITORS WITH MUSIC, SPORTS & GENERAL CRAIC TO KEEP EVERYONE HAPPY...COZ IT'S NICE TO BE HAPPY, YOU'RE ALLOWED SOMEDAY HAPPY DAYS OFF BUT IN GENERAL WE LIKE TO KEEP EVERYONE HAPPY ;-) SO THE CHASIN' BULL HAS BEEN PLAYING LIVE MUSIC FOR OVER A DECADE NOW BUT THE OWNER JAMES O' DOHERTY HAS BEEN WORKING IN THE PUB BUSINESS ALL HIS LIFE AND KNOWS THE SCENE. MORE RECENTLY HIS SIBLINGS AINE & SEAMY HAVE RETURNED FROM TRAVELLING & TOURING AND MET WITH ALOT OF MUSICIANS ALONG THE WAY WHO'VE THEY'VE ASKED TO JOIN THEM IN THEIR QUEST TO PROMOTE ORIGINAL MUSIC IN THE BULL. WITH THE RESULT THEY'VE TEAMED UP WITH NIAMH (MUSICMINDERS / DONEGAL ADVENTURE CENTRE) TO RUN A FEW "SURF/ROCK" WEEKENDS IN BUNDORAN. TO SAVE ME BLABBERING YOU CAN SEARCH "SURF/ROCKDAC" ON MYSPACE & READ ALL ABOUT IT...IT'S GONNA BE GREAT...GREAT I TELL YOU!! SO MORE ABOUT "THE BULL" AS THE LOCALS CALL IT IS HOME TO MANY ARTISTS WHICH FEATURE ON MYSPACE & TRAVEL WORLDWIDE, ONE BEING ONYA (MYSPACE.COM/ONYAMUSIC)WHO IS A LOCAL OF BUNDORAN IS THE DAUGHTER OF THE OWNERS JAMES & WINNIE O' DOHERTY & WHEN SHE ISN'T TOURING THE WORLD SHE CAN BE SPOTTED ON STAGE OR WORKING BEHIND THE BAR. ONYA WILL ALSO BE HOSTING THE OPEN MIC WHICH WILL KICK OFF IN THE BULL FROM MAY ONWARDS SO IF YOU WANT A CHANCE TO PLAY LET US KNOW. ANOTHER HOME BOY IS FALLONI PONI (MYSPACE.COM/FALLONI), HE ALSO WORKS IN THE PUB BUT GIGS SOLO OR WITH HIS BAND WHEN HE'S OFF THE ROAD! THE BLIZZARDS (MYSPACE.COM/THEBLIZZARDS) PLAYED THIER FIRST DONEGAL GIG IN THE CHASIN' BULL IN OCTOBER 2005 AND THEY WILL BE RETURNING ON APRIL 15TH TO PROMOTE THEIR SINGLE "TROUBLE"...AND THERE'S MORE SURFCHIXXX, ED COKE, EASY PC... WE ALSO WORK WITH MUSICMINDERS (WWW.MUSICMINDERS.COM) WHO HELP PROMOTE SINGER/SONGWRITERS BOTH IN IRELAND AND ABROAD SO IF YOU'RE NOT FROM IRELAND GET IN TOUCH WITH MUSICMINDERS AND THEY'LL GIVE YOU MORE INFORMATION. SO IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A GIG IN THE NORTH WEST GET IN TOUCH AND WE'LD LOVE TO HELP YOU OUT. OKAY GOTTA RUN...CUSTOMERST TO SERVE, WAVES TO SURF, BANDS TO PLAY & FUN TO BE HAD!!!
