Posted in Fanning, live, Music with tags , , on December 22, 2010 by Fanning Sessions

Power Of Dreams, The Frank & Walters and Sultans of Ping are playing a 5 date triple header Reverberation Tour around Ireland this month and to celebrate the three bands took over RTE 2fm last night and made appearances on Dave, Jenny’s and Dan’s shows. The Sultans were unable to perform due to certain members being stranded in London’s Euston station. Those that were in the studio performed a cover version of ‘Where’s Me Jumper’ and even Dave Fanning joined in..

Power Of Dreams (Live on Dan Hegarty Show)

Posted in Fanning, Music, session with tags , , , , on March 3, 2010 by Fanning Sessions

Power Of Dreams were in 2FM Studio 8 last night where they performed some songs live on the Dan Hegarty show. They also appeared on the Dave Fanning show but I didn’t find out till afterwards, should have checked here or even here. They are midway through their 25th anniversary tour so you can still catch them in Dundalk, Cork or Dublin.
