Local rockers Triggerman are set to put on a marathon free set this Friday night at Masons Bar in Magazine Street.

The four piece band, fresh from their epic performance with Status Quo last month which garnered them hundreds of new fans including Quo frontman Rick Parfitt, are coming home to Masons to perform a mammoth two hour set before their next big headlining gig at the Stendhal Festival at Limavady in August.

The band - Eamon ‘Bap’ McGeehan, Rory McCarron, Niall Deighan and Mark ‘Dixie’ Doherty - recently released their EP Hail to the River Gods on vinyl and have another much anticipated EP in the pipeline.

Speaking to the Journal, lead singer Eamon McGeehan said: “We have no support band with us on Friday night. It’s going to be wall to wall Triggerman from 11pm on. We’re going to blow the roof off the place.

“This is the first gig since Status Quo and we will be rolling out two different sets. We have a really busy couple of months ahead of us with gigs and the new EP so it’s a chance for the local fans to catch up with us. It’ll be a massive night of fun, riffs and rock n roll.”

Triggerman are playing live this Friday, August 2nd, at 11pm downstairs in Masons Bar in Magazine Street
