The Reverend Eli Finnegan

Simon and Matt from “The Reverend Eli Finnegan”  played in bands back in their youth, mainly “The Outsiders” in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s culminating in some headline gigs at The Marquee   Club in London and shows at Dingwells and The Borderline, and a Radio 1 live Maida Vale session.

Their self produced and promoted single “Handfuls of Nothing” received plays on national Radio including Radio 1, London Radio and Capital Radio and favourable reviews in the music press. Matt then took time out to have a family and the pair resurfaced in 2012 to start to write and play new and old songs as “The Reverend Eli Finnegan”. Simon in the interim developed a deep interest in world music and the visual arts and particularly “African drumming”.
