Chilean Pickpockets were formed in the spring of 2018 and comprises of Johnny Casey, Guitar, Mandolin and Vocals, Aidan Casey, Bass Guitar and Vocals and Stephen Fennessy, Drums and Percussion. Johnny has been playing in bands since the late 1970’s and was a founding member of Fair Exchange, Shock Treatment, Malpractice and Wanted (current High King member Darren Holden’s original backing band), while Aidan and Stephen have been playing in bands together since their early teens and were both founding members of That Little Bit Less, Side Effex and Sgt Major.
The band perform an eclectic mix of rock, blues, punk and reggae and their current set list features a wide range of classic numbers from the 1960’s, 70’s 80’s and 90’s as well as the occasional original number. After performing a couple of warm up gigs in February and May of 2018, Chilean Pickpockets officially launched on Friday 25th May 2018 in Moran’s Bar Clonmel where they received a very warm reception from the crowd. Some audio and video from the launch night, as well as the earlier gigs are available to view and listen to here on the website.
