If you find yourself having no luck at the Galway Races this year, why not take a punt on ‘Fortune Cookie’ at Monroe’s Live on Saturday night before your final trip to Ballybrit on Sunday?
Hailing from all over Ireland, this experienced five-piece specialise in old-school funk and soul classics, from stars such as Ray Charles, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Chic, The Commodores, Kool and the Gang and more. You’ll feel like you’ve run in the Galway Plate afterwards, you’ll have danced so hard!
After Fortune Cookie finish on the Main Stage, things will get a little lewd and rude as Monroe’s Live hosts The Lewd Tunes. With a line-up boasting drums, bass, guitar, vocal and a full brass section, The Lewd Tunes play everything from jazz and soul standards to modern pop classics from the likes of Imelda May and Bruno Mars, via rock icons like Guns ‘n’ Roses and JimiHendrix.
Doors for Fortune Cookie and The Lewd Tunes on Saturday 3 August open at 9pm and admission is €10. For more information, see www.monroes.ie.
