ZAC SCHULZE GANG came to real prominence after making their Festival debut at the Rory Gallagher Festival in 2022. Since then the Gillingham boys have been burning up the road across Europe and most recently in the USA. Built on the playing of electrifying guitarist/vocalist Zac Schulze, the gang channels their love for 20th century artists to create blisteringly up-beat blues and rock music. He is backed up by the hard-hitting rhythm section made of bassist/vocalist Ant Greenwell and his brother & drummer/vocalist Ben Schulze. All three are seasoned musicians who have paid their dues on the pub and club circuit in the UK. Now regulars on the festival circuits in the UK, Ireland and Europe, they are a force to be reckoned with.

Now they are back to headline Ballyshannon Rhythm & Blues. Combining the influences of Led Zeppelin, The Doors and The Rolling Stones with their own original tone to create a fiery cocktail of heart racing and intensely grooving sounds. The multi-national 5 piece apply acoustic and electric guitars, percussion and saxophone to deliver a sound of Ol’ and new. Coming from diverse backgrounds such as Argentina, Italy and Ireland, Gabriele, Manuel, Kai, Nahuel, Colm and Finn have been developing their sound & their energetic live set since February 2019 after a chance meeting on the musical highways of Galway City.
