Originally formed in late 2007 by Lee Meehan. The 9 Bar’s started out as a blues/soul band. After a year or so funk, dance and reggae were added to the repertoire. Today they are better described as a “roots” band playing anything from blues to upbeat acid jazz, disco & experimental music to even rap. The 9bars are currently recording a mini 6 track album in Windmill Lane Studios that will be released in the next couple of months.
The 9bars have played just about every music venue in Dublin. They have also played festivals all over Ireland such as The Electric Picnic, The Life Festival, Knockanstockan Festival, Enniscorthy Blues Festival and many more.
