First Class and Coach is a four piece band based in Ballydehob, West Cork.
Reuben Maher, guitars + keys
Geraldine Thomas, vox
Jonathan Parson, bass
Andrew McNeilage, drums.
NYC meets Berlin meets West Cork. Seeking to push the limits of the indie-rock genre, their sound has a diverse variety of color… reverb-drenched piano, distorted, squalling guitars, driving bass and hypnotic drums – all punctuated by uncompromising German / English vocals.
Reuben: played in bands for 20+ years in NYC, he enters West Cork with a wall of noise.
Tapping into his experience as a motion graphics director, Jonathan brings his visual projections to the live shows, creating an immersive live experience.
Geraldine hails from Berlin and has long been song-writing and performing live music in many guises.
Andrew is a recent graduate from BIMM music college in Dublin and brings his experience from local bands in West Cork as a young fella.
