Hot Rod Hearse are a local band hailing from Wexford. They have a unique sound, fusing together Swamp Blues, Rockabilly, Folk and straightforward Rock into a sound they call Thrift Shop Rock.

Their debut single, “There by the Road” received a lot of praise and with over 19 000 views on YouTube, it was also a finalist in the Dublin City Rounders Alt Country Songwriting Contest.

“If they didn’t already exist, somebody would have to invent them. Hot Rod Hearse brings a delicious combination of vintage sensibilities and modern production to the table.” –
Hot Rod Hearse will now be releasing their first full album ‘One time, Pappie’ on the 27/08/17. The Blackstairs Blues festival are proud to host a mini Launch of the Album as a Survivors Gig on Monday 11th of September.
