Following on from their Sold Out Grand Social show and stand out summer festival performances TOUCAN announce headline Academy show
TOUCAN are the explosive ten-piece funk-pop band blasting out a blend of feel-good, contagiously funky hits. Leading the group is Irish songwriter Conor Clancy and with a team of top performers from brass to keys behind him, their sold-out shows have proven them to be an absolute must-see.
Since releasing their debut EP they've racked up over one million streams worldwide. The lead single, We Fell For Miles, has been added to over 20,000 playlists and has received major radio play in Ireland, the UK, Australia, and all of North America.
To finish out 2018 they were featured at Other Voices and played a Sold Out hometown show in Waterford's Theatre Royal.
Their Spring UK & Ireland tour was completely Sold Out including their London debut and debut headline with MCD at The Grand Social. Their Summer schedule includes Main Stage performances at Kaleidoscope, Knockanstockan, Love Sensation and they were featured as special guests for Nile Rodgers & CHIC as well as the Average White Band in the Royal Albert Hall. Other notable performances to date include sold-out shows at the Button Factory, WigWam, The Ruby Sessions and their incredible performance in Waterford’s Theatre Royal.
'A hugely promising debut'
'Expect to see them everywhere'
'Reminiscent of the likes of Stevie Wonder complete with riffing brass sections and memorable choruses.'
The Thin Air
“The brightest sound coming out of Ireland in a long, long time. Absolutely brilliant stuff” Shay Byrne, RTÉ Radio 1
“The perfect blend of soulful funk-pop. The band are a strong contender in an era where George Ezra and Rag'n'Bone Man reign supreme” Hot Press
”A truly refreshing taste of music the likes that haven’t been seen by an Irish artist/band since Hozier released his debut album” Cathal Doherty, ILL
