Black 47 first played in the Bronx in 1989. The band's sound, a mix of Irish traditional, hip-hop and punk, was raw by all accounts. Twenty five years later, almost to the day, Black 47 played its final performance at B.B. King's on Times Square. Across those 25 years, an iconoclastic New York band found its voice.
Lead singer and head of the band, Larry Kirwan has written several books himself, and is working on a screenplay. Longer than a short story and shorter than a traditional book Sleep Tight in New York City is vailable for 99 cents!
