TOUCAN play Cyprus Avenue on Friday February 21st as part of Right Here Right Now 2020 with special guests Robert John Ardiff and The Catholic Guild and Paddy Dennehy.
Presented by Cork Opera House and Coughlan’s Live , Right Here Right Now is a celebration of the vibrant and eclectic music scene in Cork. RHRN 2020 promises to be an unmissable weekend of music celebrating the city’s array of talented artists.
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 over one million streams.
The single “We Fell for Miles" peaked at #1 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 over 20,000 playlists and has received major radio play in Ireland, and across the UK, Australia, and North America.
Throughout 2019 they played shows on some of Irelands biggest stages including Cork Opera House, The Academy in Dublin and Dolans Warehouse. Headline tours throughout the UK and their summer schedule included main stage performances supporting Nile Rodgers & Chic, The Royal Albert Hall, Knockanstockan & Love Sensation. Other notable performances to date include sold-out shows at the Button Factory, WigWam, The Ruby Sessions and their incredible performance in Waterford’s Theatre Royal.
