CLAUDIO-inspired by Micheal J.Fox in the legendary final scene from Back to the Future,he learned how to play Johnny B.Goode on the guitar. One day he tried to go backwards in time to become the greatest 18th century guitar hero. Unexpectedly,his old Fiat 500 got wrecked before the engine could get 88 mpH...
DARREN: he was a child when he realized that music would have been his biggest passion and interest in life. 1983. Sligo. Primary school. First Music class. After few failed attempts, due to the unfortunate fact that the little boy ate 2 plastic yellow flutes before he was convinced that they weren't lollipops, he seemed to be fascinated by another instrument...
If u asked Darren's teacher, still now he would hardly believe what he had seen that day: a small child holding a big Fender bass, playing a funky groove with all his tiny body shaking!!!! The rest is history...ART: he is the rocker of the band. He played with heroes such as Chuck Berry and Rory Gallagher. In the golden age of Rock, he was there; when Jimi arrived in Europe, he was there; when playing music was still wild, he was there.
In this world of boybands and X-factors, he is still here...LEGEND
When Claudio Mercante moved from Italy to Dublin, in the Summer 2007, he started to busk in town, under the name of "Moo!",which eventually became a real band. Many gigs around Dublin and few changes in the line up made the sound of the band very personal and full of different flavours: thanks to new members Darren Flynn, on the bass, and Art Lorigan, on the drums, Moo! is now an original and explosive rockabilly/bluegrass trio, with an exciting show including personal versions of great hits as well as few original tunes.
You can see the "new" band gigging in the best ranches of the Country,..Ladies & Gentlemen...HERE'S MOO!
Tune in again
