Quangodelic band leader Pat Allot says that April Fool’s Day is the perfect time for a gig by the fourteen-piece ensemble, whose performances include papier maché animal masks, frequent mutiny in the form of break-out jams, and lots of dancing. “We don't care how stupid we look; we just care about FUNK,” says Pat, who frequently plays while wearing a home-made puffin mask. “Pure wonky Funk. We play live music that people can get sweaty to. We play party music. We are the party.”

Quangodelic have been building up a cult following with regular gigs in their hometown of Cork, as well as in DeBarra’s in Clonakilty, Townlands Carnival in Macroom, Elysian Circus and Kfest in Killorglin.

But Waterford holds a special place in their heart; several band members hail from the Déise, including Tramore-born drummer Conor Gilligan, and gigs in The Strand in Dunmore East as well as at last summer’s ArtBeat, and a blustery day-time gig at Ardmore’s pattern festival mean are amongst the band members’ favorite appearances.

“We’re also delighted to be supported by Silk Road,” Pat Allot says. “They’re a brilliant, funky Waterford band and we’re looking forward to joining forces with our fellow Fools for Funk to put on a great night in Central Arts.”

As this is a BYOB gig, value for money is guaranteed. Doors on the night open at 9pm. Tickets to see the funkiest band in the country are only €10 and are available from http://www.centralarts.ie. For further info and up-to-the-minute announcements, check out the Central Arts FaceBook page.

In that context it is becoming much clearer that it is the environments in which these people are allowed to grow and develop their warped ideologies that are the most pressing areas of concern when it …
