StG can't be more excited to announce the final StG Birthday show, it is Mundy - Jelly Legs 21st Anniversary with the Original Line Up, since then Mundy has been a worldwide name with 7 albums, and this is one of only a few shows that is traveling outside Ireland for Jelly Legs 21.
At the age of 21, on the 14th of October 1996, one of Ireland's most popular singer-songwriters Mundy released his debut Album ‘Jelly Legs’ on Epic Records-a subsidiary of SONY. The critically acclaimed debut produced by ‘Youth’ went on to sell a respectable 60,000 copies around the world.
This year will mark the 21st Anniversary of the said album and also 21 years since his song “To you I Bestow’ appeared on the Hollywood block buster movie ‘Romeo and Juliet’ by Baz Luhrman. The movies soundtrack, cherished by many, sold over 11 million copies around the world. The album also featured the songs ‘Pardon Me’ and ‘Life’s a Cinch’ which also got MTV and VH1 rotation plus the highly requested song ‘Gin and Tonic Sky’.
Now ‘Jelly Legs’ has reached that milestone. It has come of age and remains a timeless, ageless classic. Mundy is marking this occasion and will celebrate the album by reforming his old band with Guitarist Steo Farrell, Drummer Cion O’Callaghan and Bassist Shane Fitzsimons. The band toured France, the UK and the States extensively also sharing bills with Van Morrison, Manic Street Preachers, Cast and Stereophonics to name but a few.
The tour will simply be called ‘Jelly Legs 21’ and Mundy is going to add some extra layers to make it a very special celebration.

On the 14th of October 1996, at the age of 21, Mundy released his debut album Jelly Legs on Epic Records. The critically acclaimed album launched the career of one of Ireland’s most beloved singer-songwriters. Jelly Legs also included the song ‘To You I Bestow’ which appeared on the soundtrack to ‘Romeo and Juliet’ by Baz Luhrmann and sold over 11 million copies worldwide, introducing Mundy to an international audience.
2017 is the 21st anniversary of Jelly Legs and over the years the album has become a much-loved classic, achieving platinum status in Ireland. Sony Music Ireland re-issued Jelly Legs on both CD & Vinyl on 29th September and Mundy has decided to mark the occasion and celebrate the album by reforming his old band with Steo Farrell (guitars), Cion O’Callaghan (drums) and Shane Fitzsimons (bass). Back in the 90s the band toured France, the UK and the States extensively, sharing bills with Van Morrison, Manic Street Preachers, Cast and Stereophonics. Now the guys are looking forward to playing together again, revisiting the hits ‘Pardon Me’, ‘Life’s a Cinch’, and the highly-requested song ‘Gin and Tonic Sky’.
Since the release of Jelly Legs in 1996, Mundy has released a further five studio albums and two live albums. His sophomore album 24 Star Hotel went multi-platinum, and songs ‘July’ and ‘Mexico’ are firm fan favourites. His version of ‘Galway Girl’ with Sharon Shannon was a number one hit, was the most downloaded song of 2007 and 2008 in Ireland, and has gone on to become the eighth highest selling single in Irish chart history.
Mundy has toured extensively in the US, Australia, and all over Europe, performing at prestigious venues like The Royal Albert Hall, and supporting legendary acts including Jimmy Webb, The White Stripes and Oasis. One of his career highlights was playing for Barack Obama, both on his Irish state visit and also in The White House.

Following Jellylegs, Mundy went on to release the multi platinum record 24 Star Hotel, with hit tracks 'July' and 'Mexico' becoming firm favourites. Raining Down Arrows, which hit the #1 slot in the Irish Album Charts, came next and was recorded in the musically revered city of Austin, Texas. His first live album Live and Confusion followed, recorded at a storming and sold out Vicar St show. Galway Girl was recorded as an encore and went on to become the best selling single and most downloaded song 2 years in a row in Ireland (2007 / 2008). His 4th studio album, Strawberry Blood, followed in 2009 and saw Mundy touring Ireland, Australia and the UK once more. Shuffle was released in 2011 and was a gorgeous ode to some of Mundy's most favourite songwriters. It featured his versions of songs by greats like Tom Waits, Lucinda Williams, John Prine, Paul Simon and Gillian Welch, to name a few.

This is gas.. but Cadbury Ireland are getting behind the great cause that is Aware and this is a photo shoot we did the other day for a fundraiser that’s coming up on April 6th. I forgot about the sponsor but as I was looking at this photo.. and the expressions on each unique face- the purple back drop got me subconsciously thinking of a mini dairy milk bar, you know the long thin ones?? That’s the power of colour and the aul marketing. Not a scribble in sight either, so very effective stuff after all these years.Have you got your tickets yet for A Night for Aware - Concert? The line-up includes Christy Dignam, In Tua Nua, Mundy, The Pale, Cry Monster Cry, BARQ and many more. Taking place on Friday 6th April, it promises to be an incredible night in the Olympia Theatre. Get tickets now: bit.ly/2Hcff2O
Kindly sponsored by Cadbury Dairy Milk. Tickets are €25, with all proceeds from the night going to Aware. ... See MoreSee Less
So I be off in the morrow to mostly pastures new ‘cept Bangkok. My old pal Daymo wrote these few Irish Songs out as some to learn the other night.. I’m all about singing and writing my own songs and that’s been very kind to me. On a rare occasion, usually around St.Patricks Day abroad, I find that I can never have enough of an Arsenal of Irish Songs when playing (except for the times I played in Fidel Murphy’s-Caymans and it was ok to play Bob Marley and Dylan on St Patricks). I’d rather not be a party pooper if I’m hit with the ‘play somefink Oirish!’. So let me know the crowd pleasers,from Cranberries to Dubliners,Waterboys to Pat Casey. My Americana influences won’t rise if such a situation arises.. I’ve a good 14 good ones off by heart but never the right ones. ... See MoreSee Less
oh Mundy.It depends on where you are going.These are great songs for Charlies,but you might have to do a lot more cheesy songs then these in some places!!!!

I will be playing a few tunes myself in the corner house in Istanbul,if they kick you out of Tokyo!!!!

About 22 years ago I lived in a tiny village in Holland called Ommen. On night after a few beers we passed tiny a takeaway/restaurant that had a bit of noise coming from it. Inside was about 12 Dutch aul'fellas belting out the Dutch words to "The Wild Rover" while pouring beer on a tablecloth covered table that they slapped to make a big mess during the 'no nay never'. We joined in as you do. This The Irish Rover and Red Rose Café are a bit of craic without being too Oirish. (you could do an acoustic version of a certain House of Pain song as a twist on the Oirish thing) Slán agus áth mór.
Please share and get on board if you agree that homelessness and the housing crisis should be dealt with in a compassionate way and declared an emergency. My friend Luka Bloom sent this to me. I stand by him on this.
‘The ever-growing number of homeless men and women, as well as children is an unacceptable tragedy in a supposedly wealthy republic. I’ve decided to support a campaign being initiated by the newly created National Homeless and Housing †Coalition.
The coalition consists of political parties, unions, homeless charities and many individuals. The campaign has several demands, the first being that the Government declare a National housing emergency.
The first major action of this coalition, will be a †protest in Dublin on April 7th. In order to persuade the government to take the issue of housing seriously in an election year, we need to mobilise as many people as possible onto the streets of Dublin.’ ... See MoreSee Less
