Mark Geary at The Grand Social (review & photos)
The Grand Social hosted Mark Geary last Friday, April 19th.
Accompanied by four talented musicians Mark took to the stage ready to make the night a memorable one for the couple hundred or more people that came to see him and his band. The setlist included some of his older, classic tunes – to which everyone sang along, as well as some of the newer material – which everyone enjoyed.
One special moment was when Mark called Andrea on stage for a duet. Andrea is one of Mark’s fans who wrote him on Facebook asking permission to sing one of his songs. The two met on the stage at The Grand Social fire the first time and had a brilliant moment together.
The night was a pleasant blend of good music and stories about love, family, a Latvian hairdresser living in Dublin, Mark’s sister who decided to return to Ireland living abroad for many years.
Towards the end of the set, Mark invited a few other musicians on stage for a tune that turned out great. The whole concert was so appreciated by the audience that Mark couldn’t leave the stage until after the second encore.
Support came from Gavin Glass and his band.
