“Smokin’Gunz” are Jim O Neill (professional radio broadcaster and musician) and Steve Belton (guitarist with Fountainhead, Cry before Dawn and Hazel O Conor). Performing an eclectic mix of rock, folk, jazz and blues, Jim and Steve will re-unite with Clonakilty musicians, Bill Shanley, John Fitzgerald and Anto Noonan for this one-off gig which promises to evoke many memories of the famous Noel Redding sessions. For many years, Jim and Steve regularly travelled to Clonakilty to gig with Noel during his resident gigs in De Barras and Shanleys.
All proceeds from this gig go to the “evict the lodger” fundraiser campaign for stem cell treatment for friend and fellow musicologist, Mark Gilligan who suffers from MS. Mark also travelled to Clon regularly to play sax and clarinet with Noel. For further info on this fundraiser go to
