THE BUSINESS

"The Business" was an inheritance for me! Paul Brady had found a lot of interest in the USA  after the release of his first rock album "Hard Station" and went to America (initially for 6 months) to pursue that potential and he wanted someone to front the band in his absence to keep them playing together. Time dragged on in the US for Paul and a few of the band drifted off to pursue other interests for themselves.
So, the original Business line-up was myself, Jimmy Faulkner (gtr); Fran Breen (drums) ; James Delaney (keys); and Tommy Moore (bass/vocals). As the band was initially a temporary arrangement we didn't record anything... but built a great regular following in Slattery's on Capel St. with a fairly eclectic mix of country, rock, blues and even a few Jimmy Cliff songs!
Eventually Pat O'Farrell replaced Jimmy Faulkner, Davy Gaynor replaced Fran Breen and Don Baker joined the band on harmonica/vocals... later on Davy Whyte replaced Davy Gaynor.  As time went on the band fell very much into a straight ahead blues vibe.... and I moved on soon after that.

A great thoroughbred band, the Business maintained their weekly residency in Slattery's for the best part of 20 years!

"THE BUSINESS"

"The Business" was an inheritance for me!
