Kennys Swiss Side- St Patrick's Day

Kenny's Swiss Side is a project born from the idea and desire to form a band mixing rock with elements of traditional Irish and Scottish music.

To cope with the musicians' desire to share the energy of such music, the initial repertoire was mainly made up of covers from legendary Irish punk rock bands, rearranged with Kenny's sauce, taking advantage of traditional instruments such as the violin (Anders), whistles and bagpipes (Matt) mixing with the more contemporary rock base of the guitar (Yan), bass (Phil) and drums (PF).

The accent of the voice of Anglo Irish singer Tom adds to getting even more into the party mood! So come join Kenny’s Swiss Side on the festive occasion that is St Patrick’s, to drink, or dance to rhythms and energetic melodies with us!

'39 Queen Tribute

'39 Queen Tribute
First of all why '39?
For a set of meanings. A number, like music, is universal and univocal for everyone in all languages ... '39 then (coincidentally!) is also the telephone prefix of Italy... '39 is a wonderful piece of music written and sung (in the studio) by Brian May included in the album A Night At The Opera, which speaks of a journey into space. An adventure.
