BAGATELLE started back in 1978 at a time when original bands were not very successful in Ireland. As a matter of fact, the idea of a band touring Nationwide with original music just didn’t work .. for most! However, Bagatelle’s music did work and would help to establish them firmly on the Irish music circuit ….. Worldwide.
Over 40 years they’ve had several no.1 singles with iconic songs like SUMMER IN DUBLIN, SECOND VIOLIN and TRUMP CARD. They have also had multi-platinum & gold album sales + classic emigration songs like STREETS OF NEW YORK, FLIGHT OF EARLS, and BOSTON ROSE, all written by Bagatelle “ Hit Man “ Liam Reilly.
BAGATELLE have shared the stage with legends like Bob Marley, John Denver, The Pogue’s, Duran Duran, Pretenders, Van Morrison, U2, Jose Feliciano, Wishbone Ash, UB40 and George Michael to name but a few! A few years ago they completed their final year tour and retired for all of 3 months and got bored!!
After this, they played a series of “ One For The Road “ SOLD OUT gigs across Ireland, England & America. Fast forward to Mar 2021, covid hit, and the music stopped! Two lockdowns later and the world was a different place… sadly singer/songwriter Liam Reilly passed away during the lockdown, but Bagatelles music legacy lives on and is now coming to THE LARK in Balbriggan.
