The band's second album, entitled 'At Last' was launched on Thursday, June 5th, 2008, in the Radisson Hotel, Galway. The album was almost a year in the making and the band worked hard to produce what they believe to be one of the best big band albums Ireland has ever heard.
The CD features Garrett Phillips, Keith McDonald and Barbara Vulso at their vocal best, with some of the country's finest soloists also featured. With something for everyone on the album, from Sinatra classics to funk, it truly is a fantastic offering from Galway's premiere big band. The band still enjoys it's Monday night residency, which has run for years now, and admission is now FREE every Monday.
This latest CD is approximately 1 hour in length, and consists of 13 tracks:
- Basie straight ahead
