Brian Downey - Alive and Dangerous+ supports Blue Nation + Thunderchunky

Brian Downey on drums needs no introduction......

Hailing originally from Dublin, Brian enjoyed his first taste of success in Ireland with the top 20 hit 'Morning Dew' before forming 'Orphanage with Phil Lynott.

The two went on to form the legendary Thin Lizzy with Eric Bell and Brian remained a constant member until the band split in 1983.

Having worked on Phil Lynott's solo albums and the subsequent Grand Slam project. Brian relocated back to Dublin around the time of Phil's untimely death on January 4th 1986. Brian remained in constant demand as both a touring and session drummer and regulary played live shows and recorded with renowned guitarist Gary Moore.

Brian is often cited as being an influence by many of the world's top drummers and feels invigorated to be playing the songs he co-wrote in Thin Lizzy with his new band ALIVE AND DANGEROUS.

MATT WILSON: BASS GUITAR/LEAD VOCALS.
Matt is a Belfast based musician and vocalist with a fervent love of blues, rock and soul. Starting off at an early age as a boy soprano, his teens saw him flirting with various bands, playing standards from Jimi Hendrix, Bill Withers and Funkadelic, leading him to become one of Northern Ireland's most sought after radio jingle and corporate vocalists.

The influence of Thin Lizzy's music and in Particular, Phil Lynott's vocal/writing style, making the perfect frontman for ALIVE AND DANGEROUS.......Are you ready?!

PHIL EDGAR: LEAD GUITAR/BACKING VOCALS
Phil hails from Lisburn near Belfast in Northern Ireland and was born to play rock 'n' roll!! His early career saw him play with local bands and was heavily influenced by the music of Thin Lizzy, The Eagles and Peter Green.

More recently Phil has had major exposure with Matt Wilson in The Sensational Northern Irish band, El Dude Brothers. Phil's reputation as a young tear-away guitarist gives ALIVE AND DANGEROUS a sparkling injection of passion, style and flair.

BRIAN GRACE: LEAD GUITAR/BACKING VOCALS.
Brian is a well known musician in Ireland and has a career spanning almost 30 years.

He started playing with the legendary Brush Shiels (Skid Row) in the '80's, moving on to play and record worldwide with the likes of Rob Strong, Andrew Strong (The Commitments) and Juliet Turner.
Brian was musical director on the famous "Vibe for Philo" in Dublin and was a major contributor every year since 1986.

Brian is widely regarded as one of Ireland's finest guitarists and would give any players out there, past and present, a serious run for their money!!!

BLUE NATION, is a 3-piece band from Birmingham, euphonic riff based rock to create a sound that doesn’t fit neatly into a genre and is all the more memorable for it. Their songs are delivered by three accomplished musicians, fronted with stunning vocals. All backed up with impressive gig experience, stage presence and great songs.
