Bagatelle started in 1978 at a time when original bands weren’t all that successful in Ireland. In fact the idea of a band touring nationwide with a full original music set just didn’t work out ……… for most !
However, Bagatelle’s music did work , and would help to establish them firmly on the Irish Music Circuit … Worldwide. Over those 40 years they’ve had several No 1 singles with Iconic songs like Summer In Dublin Second Violin Trump Card etc Platinum & Gold Album sales + Classic Emigration Songs like Streets Of New York Flight of Earls Boston Rose written of course by Bagatelles Hit Man Liam Reilly.
They have shared stages with legends like Bob Marley John Denver The Pogues Duran Duran The Pretenders Van Morrison U2 UB40 George Micheal Jose Feliciano The list is endless !
2 years ago they completed their Final Year Tour, retired ( for all of about 3 months ! ) Got bored Not touring ! then played a major series of “ One For The Road “ SOLD OUT gigs
And Now …………….. BAGATELLE @ 40 40 Years of Original Music
