Seven Summits are one of those bands who have always been around – but you didn’t know it – but now you wish you did sooner. They’ve always just been Rory Nellis and Fra Mcrory – and they’ve been lots of different bands really. I saw them in London once when they were The 3rd Dan, and God they were good then. Imagine my delight then that, nowadays, they consist of 3 ex-members of The Delawares, including Katie of Katie and The Carnival.
Believe it or not, we were going to feature Katie’s band for this week’s episode of IN STORES NOW. But after watching the very wonderful Seven Summits at the Menagerie in Belfast last night, opinions changed. It was the mood of the place, not hindered in any way by a stunning song called ‘Make Lemonade’, and the general positive vibes the lads (and lady) made. Katie cant complain, she’s in this video too.
So we filmed this gig a few or so ago and thought we would bring it forward a few weeks for you. It’s lemonade for the soul, people.
Seven Summits have an album out on 29th September, and will be playing The Black Box in Belfast on that day to mark the occasion
