Bruised Orange is Irelands premier John Prine tribute band. Boasting some of Irelands most experienced musicians, the 5-piece band is made up of Michael ‘Mike Mack’ McGarry (rhythm guitar & Vocals), Anthony Toby Cregan (lead Guitar, vocals), Derek Matthews (bass & vocals) Steve Milne (keyboards) and Shay Carry (percussion). Each member brings a unique set of talents and abilities to the group which provides for a unique live John Prine experience. The band have extensively toured Ireland for the past three years receiving 5-star reviews from leading critics from Ireland and afar.

The show is fronted by Mike Mack McGarry who accurately reflects John’s vocal range with similar ease of delivery, an affected twang and drawl; which thrive off of a peculiar, domestic relation to country, folk, rhythm and blues. His storytelling and short antidotes are also a testament to a Bruised Orange live show. Lead guitarist Anthony Toby Cregan is one of Irelands most revered guitarists, his style and playing reflects that of Jason Wilbur, Prine’s go to guy from the early 1990’s up until Johns death. Bassist Derek Matthews is known from one of Irelands top wedding bands ‘Stop the Clock’. His double bass and look again reflects that of Prine’s bass man Dave Jacques. On keyboards is Steve Milne who has spent decades on tour with Daniel O’Donnell and Mary Duff, Steve is one of Irelands most talented musicians. Drummer Shay Carry is the backbone of the band with his unique style. Shay has toured with some of Irelands top country artists.
