On the Edge

Former member of Liberties based stage school Atomic, Darren Caffrey has from a young age always dreamt of becoming a professional musician and is hoping his band On The Edge will be the platform for making this dream come true.

 Darren learned everything from dancing to acting and singing during his time at Atomic. He is convinced that what he learnt at the stage school will be vitally important to him as On The Edge take their first tentative steps along the rocky road to success in the music industry.

 “The experience with Atomic has been a huge influence and made it clear to me that singing was something I wanted to pursue as a career,” he said.

“We are currently looking for management, so we have been really busy lately doing a lot of promo gigs trying to get our name out there,” he continued.

 The band has played The Tivoli’s Christmas panto, Spin roller discos as well as gigs in the Gleneagles Hotel in Killarney and the Helix.

Influenced by the likes of Michael Buble and the Overtones, Darren describes the bands sound as “kind of Rockabilly retro with a young fresh mix. We mix the old with the new, putting old twists onto new songs and a new twist onto old songs. There is nobody really out now like us”.

 It has been hard work for the young band this far and Darren had to drop out of his Performing Arts course last November due to On The Edge’s ever increasing schedule.

“We are working very hard at the minute rehearsing as often as we can with vocal coaches and trying to get the band as tight as we can. I don’t mind all the work as I want to give it one hundred per cent and not to look back in the future and wonder what if?” he said.

 The band are hoping to get into the studio as soon as they can to start recording their first release and with more live shows in the pipeline it looks like it is going to be a busy few months ahead for On The Edge.
