The Dirty Onion
3 Hill Street, BT1 2LA Belfast
The Unholy Gospel band, a quintet fronted by the former 'Answer' singer Cormac Neeson, bringing a new 'spiritual' sound to Belfast.

«It's basically borrowing the American 'gospel brunch' format,» explains Neeson, who has seen his fair share of this sort of thing while criss-crossing the US with The Answer.

«I conceived the idea while touring America and passing through those great music cities like Chicago, Memphis, Nashville and New Orleans, places where you could be dandering down the street on any given Sunday and hear this great gospel music blasting from a bar on the main drag.

»You'd be handed a bowl of gumbo and a Bloody Mary on your way in and then sit back and enjoy all this great music."

«I figured, Belfast is thriving with regards to the various folk bands, blues bands and country bands you can go and see, but an authentic gospel band is something that hasn't really been tried before,»

«Gospel music drawing on all of those genres could be a very natural fit for the city and Northern Ireland in general.»

The Unholy Gospel Band will be at the service of saints and sinners in the Dirty Onion beer garden on a Sunday afternoon. Mon down.
