Chequered sleeves are a newly formed band that originate from Greystones, Co Wicklow. We are a four piece band consisting of a bassist/vocals, rhythm guitar/vocals, lead guitar/vocals and drums.
The name ‘Chequered Sleeves' came about when the lads slagged each other for wearing chequered shirts to each rehearsal, a style dedicated to their hero, Rory Gallagher. While Chequered Sleeves are very infuenced by Phil Lynott’s stage-style, the influence of power bands like ACDC and Black Sabbath crossed with modern day similarities like Gary Clarke jr, Rory Gallagher and Wolfmother have urged the Chequered Sleeves to follow their lead.
Chequered Sleeves are highly accomplished musicians and deliver a great live show which is sophisticated beyond their years, playing both originals and classic rock/blues covers.
