Spring Break, Ireland’s Top 80’s Tribute Band, will play for Western Care!

Breaffy House Resort, Friday, January 29th, 2016


Spring Break, Ireland’s top party and wedding 80’s tribute band will play their first Mayo gig when they headline a Battle of the Bands contest in Breaffy House Resort on Friday, January 29th, a fundraising event for Western Care Association.  While Spring Break is Dublin based, all the band’s members are American and are steeped in the 80’s music genre.  They are a fantastic fun dance band who put on an awesome show full of high-octane, fist-pumping floor-fillers of the 1980’s.

Spring Break’s show will be preceded by the Battle of the Bands that will see seven local groups Blood Sledge Electric Death Chicken, Jam Shugar, Raging Sons, Receptor, Unwritten, Wavelength and Work in Progress battle it out for fabulous first prize of two days in a recording studio plus a cash prize of €500!  The winning band will be the one that receives the highest combined vote from a panel of local celebrity judges and the audience on a 50/50 basis – each member can purchase votes on the night and support their favourite act!

Special guest MC for the Battle of the Bands will be Today FM’s Fergal Darcy, local DJ Neil Toner, will keep the place hopping between acts and special guests Dublin-based Spring Break will finish out the night rocking into the early hours of the morning!  There will also be a monster raffle also on the night with a first prize of two tickets to Electric Picnic 2016 as well as many other fantastic prizes.
