Pavesi are Duck Gallagher, Ronan Hanna, Michael Gillespie and Johnny McCabe and have been together since 2006. Named after the ballroom in Donegal were the band use to rehearse during their school days, the band have travel the world, but have now settled in Donegal town.

"The acts performing will have the wonderful chance to win a superb prize, including the opportunity to have a professional CD cut, music video produced and the chance to gain excellent media coverage - an ideal start for any musician or group," he concluded.

This could be a fun concert. If anyone goes and get pics pop me over a few and I can post them on the blog.
