Concerto for Constantine is three Dubliners: singer and guitarist Mark Greaney (formerly JJ72's frontman and songwriter), bassist Gavin Fox (formerly of Turn, Idlewild and Vega4),and drummer Binzer (formerly of The Frames, BellX1, and Halite; he also plays drums for Mundy and My Brightest Diamond).
In the summer of 2007, Mark and Gavin found themselves bandless simultaneously. They had, over the years of knowing one another, sporadically yet passionately discussed the notion of forming a three piece rock band. It was time for action. The first, and only, person to be sought for drumming duties was Binzer. He has been referred to as "the Irish Jimmy Chamberlain". Enough said.
A rehearsal took place in August 2007. It was raw. It was visceral. And, having enough gigs under their collective belt from over the past decade, they knew immediately that it worked. Spines shivered, hearts beat faster and ears hurt. A beautiful thunder was born. As individuals, the experience and talent is impressive. As a band, it is colossal. This is three men at the top of their game, playing the music that they have always wanted to play.
