The Shoogle Project


plan B and Shooglenifty join forces in this explosive, toe-tapping, foot stomping night out! Bringing together the infectious and energetic live music of Shooglenifty with choreography from plan B's Frank McConnell, The Shoogle Project is a meeting of music, dance, performance and a passion for getting people moving.

Part gig, part show, part ceilidh, plan B and Shooglenifty re-invent the meaning of a good night out through this high-octane blend of the Shoogle's renowned celtic-acid-croft music and plan B's unique choreographic flair.
