FIRSTCLASS&COACH Band info

‘First Class and Coach’ is a four piece band based in Ballydehob, West Cork, Ireland.

Members: Reuben Maher, guitar, keys, vox; Geraldine Thomas, vox; Jonathan Parson, bass; Andrew McNeilage, drums.

NYC meets Berlin meets West Cork.

Seeking to push the boundaries of the indie-rock genre the sound has a variety of color... reverb-drenched piano, distorted, squalling guitars, driving bass and muscular drums all punctuated by uncompromising German / English vocals.

Having played in bands for 20+ years in NYC (Toulouse, Poka Poka, The Blam) Reuben enters West Cork with a wall of noise.

Geraldine hails from Berlin and has long been song-writing and performing live music in many guises.

Tapping into his experience as a motion graphics director Jonathan brings his visual projections to the live shows, creating an immersive live experience.

Andrew is a recent graduate from BIMM music college in Dublin and brings his experience from local bands in West Cork since a young fella.
