Venue: Big Beach Brewing Company, 300 E. 24th Ave. (Gulf Shores), bigbeachbrewing.com
Singer-songwriter Dennis O’Hagan is bringing his long-running “Great Brewery Tour” to Big Beach Brewing Company. This Irish transplant has spent more than three decades entertaining audiences with his musical talent. Over his career, O’Hagan has performed in various indie and alt. rock outfits such as the Voodoo Loons. Both as a solo artist and with a band, O’Hagan has shared the stage with bands such as Violent Femmes, The Church, Blue Oyster Cult and more. Now, this singer-songwriter is focusing on his love for craft beer and music with an extensive tour that has been rolling since 2018.
The Great Brewery Tour is a chance for O’Hagan to spread his music while sampling some of the nation’s best brews. As he performs, O’Hagan drinks offerings from the craft brewery where he is performing. Afterward, he reviews the evening’s samples on his blog. Since starting the tour, O’Hagan has visited 200 craft breweries in 25 states.
In addition to “an eclectic mixture of traditional music, sea shanties and some covers,” O’Hagan will entertain his audience with a number of original songs from his career. Considering his work with the Voodoo Loons, O’Hagan will have a collection of unplugged rock anthems that are truly alternative. Vocally, his work with the Voodoo Loons is reminiscent of Frank Black from the Pixies. Instrumentally, this sound is painted in shades of The Afghan Whigs. While his solo EP has yet to be released, O’Hagan’s live shows should provide a preview of things to come from this interesting songwriter.
