“An outrageously gratuitous slice of funk-laden Wunderbar. Expect to see them everywhere” -------REMY
TOUCAN are the explosive ten-piece funk-pop band blasting out a blend of feel-good, contagiously funky hits.
Leading the group is Irish songwriter Conor Clancy and with a team of top performers from brass to keys behind him, their sold-out shows have proven them to be an absolute must-see.
Since releasing their debut EP they've racked up 500,000+ international streams. The single “We Fell for Miles" peaked at #2 in the iTunes rock charts, the Top 30 in the singles charts, and sustained the Top 10 in Spotify’s ‘Ireland Viral 50’. The song has since been added to more than 6,500 playlists and has received major radio play in Ireland, the UK, Australia, and all of North America.
Notable performances to date include packed-out shows at the Button Factory, WigWam, The Ruby Sessions and their headline performance in Waterford’s Theatre Royal. along with a select handful of dates, including Other Voices, before they set their sights on a full-fledged tour for 2019
