Electric Picnic Pick #1 - Huey & The Hobgoblins

It's that time of the year nearly every Irish bands gets to update their status with 'We're Playing The Picnic'. To help you find the best bands on the schedule before you get to Stradbally I'll be picking ten relatively unknown bands for you to find at Electric Picnic. 

Huey & The Hobgoblins have a nice stage time on Friday on The Salty Dog stage at 8pm. Hopefully the punters will have their tents and beer sorted so that they can chill out to the fine sounds of Huey & the Hobgoblins. The band were one of the highlights from Vantastival with their infectious funky pop sounds.

With this band it's all about personality, they have a fine presence on stage and look like they are really enjoying themselves and their music. Their style infuses eastern sounds with jazzy funk overtones including a brass section and wonderful vocals from lead singer Brian.
