Skylite Room Warrenpoint is proud to present Aslan.
Aslan took their name from the fictional lion in C.S. Lewis's series of books chronicling the land of Narnia; (Aslan is the Turkish word for "Lion"). The band came from the working class areas of Finglas and Ballymun in Dublin's Northside, in the mid-1980s. They released a demo single, "This Is", in the spring of 1986. It was a success and a popular single on Ireland's pop radio station, RTÉ 2fm.
In 2015 Aslan played with sell out shows in Dublins Vicar st and the Olympia theatre and Cork s Opera house. With Christy getting stronger the band played a number of festivals in 2016 including Groove Festival and Daytripper festival as well as the INEC in Killarney.The band also played in London in October. This December sees the band playing 3 Sold Out shows in Dublins Vicar St where the band will be performing their biggest selling album Made In Dublin in its entirety accompanied by a string quartet , percussion player and keyboard player just as when the original album was recorded back in 1999. With 2017 sold out gigs already in the Olympia theatre Dublin and Live At The Big Top in Limerick in March and Corks Opera House in April, Aslan are back to their best . The band also returned to London for another sell out gig in March 10th and 11th to play at Nells Jazz and Blues Club in Kennsington .
