Bahookie is comprised entirely of professional musicians (graduates from the prestigious Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama) who have been involved in the music business – performing and educating – for a considerable number of years. Experience and professionalism is the key to the continued success of the band.
The BIG “bahookie” sound! is a unique blend of rock and traditional Celtic music and the band’s success can undoubtedly be attributed to their ability to transfer their highly acclaimed recorded material to the most fantastic and unforgettable live performances. It is not uncommon to be dancing a Strip The Willow to then hear the band seamlessly rock into ‘Knights of Cydonia’ by Muse or even ‘Insomnia’ by Faithless!!!. The band have also recently added some Snoop Dog to one of the sets – see if you can spot it on a gig!…..‘It’s like the Fiddler who meets the Foo Fighters and then goes for a pint with Avicii…’
This completely original take on contemporary Scottish music has seen the band visit many countries across the globe. Recent tours include gigs in Norway for Gulf Offshore Ltd, and Dubai and Abu Dhabi for the Caledonian Societies. We will go anywhere!
