The band Vulfpeck recorded a music video at their Vicar Street gig and the crowd was rowdy as anything

The best fans in the world <3

IF YOU’VE NEVER heard of the band Vulfpeck, prepare to be educated.

Vulfpeck are an American funk group, whose zany antics and good tunes have seen them rise to prominence in recent years.

For example, in 2014, they released an EP called ‘Sleepify’, which consisted of nothing but silent tracks  order to raise funds for an admission-free tour. The album generated $20,000 in royalties over a two-month period. Subsequently Spotify removed the album stating it violated their terms of content. However, they ultimately succeeded in organising and going on the tour.

That bass though …

Anyway. They released their third album, ‘Mr. Finish Line’, at the end of last year. Prior to the album’s release, they went on tour, stopping at Vicar Street for two nights.

It’s safe to say they’ve built a pretty loyal following on this small island, and their enthusiasm has been duly noted by the band.

So much so, that they made the crowd at said gig the stars of their new music video.

Have you ever seen a crowd sing a bassline? You have now.

On Facebook, the band captioned the video post:

Have you ever heard such a rowdy melody?”

Nope, but trust to Dublin to come through. Maybe none of those bands were lying when they said “Dublin’s been the best stop on the whole tour”.
