Bobby Mc honed his craft playing in some of the loveliest and not so lovely venues in Ireland. Mainly playing a one-man show with piano and tracks, he learned how to work a crowd and what it meant to win them over. This was the time he really fell in love with swing and jazz. Michael Buble was a big influence on him at this point, but he soon began to discover the greats of that music like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole etc…
He had his first sold out show called ‘Bobby Mc’s Speakeasy’. The show was performed to a sold out ‘Draiocht’ theatre. Carefully curated by Bobby Mc, the show featured songs from the greats of jazz and swing as well as some more modern jazz acts such as Gregory Porter.
He also performs as Bobby Mc & The Dukes a 7-piece band consisting of Keys, Guitar, Double Bass, Drums with a 3-piece horn section featuring some of Ireland’s greatest musicians in Michael and Richie Buckley on Tenor Saxophone and Mark Adams on Trumpet.
