Jazz innovators Metropolis will perform at the Hot Spot Music Club in Greystones on Saturday, June 4.
Originally formed in 1979, Metropolis quickly established themselves as one of Dublin’s most interesting and innovative bands, playing the music they used to call jazz rock, mostly composed themselves but featuring works by Frank Zappa, Weather Report and The Police.
Sting from that band did indeed come to their three-year residency at Dublin’s Parliament Inn to witness a performance.
Flash forward 40 years, Metropolis still plays music that excites and challenges, but the priority now is the pure pleasure of improvising together.
Metropolis are now Keith Donald, who plays clarinet and saxophone, Paul Barrett on keyboards, Paul McAteer on drums and Garvan Gallagher on bass.
Tickets cost €15.
