Creating a Party to Remember

We are Flannery, a bunch of rockin’, rugged men from Groningen, the Netherlands. We wear kilts, and we make happy, up-beat melodic folk-rock. The unique core of our music is the bagpipes, but we won’t make your average Auld Lang Syne stuff. Although our influences are traditional Scottish, Celtic, and Irish folk music, we Flannerise our songs, and decorate them with a bagpipe tune. We change between instrumental, and vocal songs, just to keep your party going!

Flannery started out in 2012, during a big festival in the Netherlands. Denny “500” Myles, the piper, expanded his bagpipes band The Myles Brothers with friends, to offer a broader range of folk rock music. Soon after, Flannery was founded. Currently, the band consists of Denny on bagpipes, Tim on drums, Steven on lead guitar and backing vocals, Arrie on bass guitar, and Martin on lead vocals. Since 2012, we had performances throughout The Netherlands, from Hellevoetsluis to Tytsjerk. Also, we toured around Europe on several occasions, and rocked in Italy, in Germany, Belgium and even Ukraine!

DENNY
DENNY
When you say Flannery, you say Denny. And if you say Denny, you say bagpipes. At a young age, he played with his three brothers in the bagpipes quartet The Myles Brothers, but they were too 2008 for him. So he gathered some friends and created The Myles Brothers & Friends, which turned into Flannery. Super original, huh?
STEVEN
STEVEN
The lead guitar of Flannery? Steven, an allround guitar player. Tight rhythms, acoustic accompaniments, complicated licks: he plays everything. Started at 12 – no one knows his true age – he has gained experience in various bands (such as And the Gods made Coffee, The Highland Sell-Outs; Black Melon). In short, an epic musician!
MARTIN
MARTIN
The eccentric, energetic and awesome lead vocalist. Discovered in church, at 4 years old, he never stopped singing ever since, much to the annoyance of whomever was living with him at the time. He’s also part of the Dutch vocal ensemble The Gents. If you see him dancing, don’t hesitate to get up and join the party!
ARRIE
ARRIE
The big, bald, bearded bass beast: Arrie in a nutshell. Together with Tim, he is the steady core of the band. Steady, but if you dare him, he might give a kick-ass lick on his four string. Pure, raw emotion embedded in a sweet melody, that’s Arrie for ya; next to metal, nerdy hobbies and good food, he even likes folk music!
TIM
TIM
King of rhythm, schlagmeister, trommelkoning, but knows how and where to play the rests, too. Tim’s carpenter skills come in handy behind the toms, he knows how to hit, and how to hit hard. Keep an eye on when he starts playing whilst standing up straight; he’ll go wild and all kinds of crazy occurances may follow.
