Pontious Pilate & The Naildrivers

In 1999, four people came together as Pontious Pilate & The Naildrivers because of their love of the energy, message and fun of ska music.

Pontious Pilate & The Naildrivers are (now complete with brass section) a nine piece ska explosion.

Playing the length and breadth of the country for over 15 year to rave reviews, they have shared the stage with such luminaries as The Undertones, Bad Manners and The Selecter and energize audiences playing the ska and punk music of late seventies and early eighties (and a few of their own besides). Bands like The Specials, Madness, The Jam, and The Clash come to life in the hands of The Naildrivers. The music they play can be described by many people in many different ways; ska, rock, punk, whatever, but at the end of the day it’s just good music that’s fun to dance and go wild to, as can be seen at any of their gigs, where both the band and the audience end up in a lather of sweat, smiles and satisfied exhaustion, each giving it their all. “Seriously guys. You Skaed (can that be a word ) the f**k out of Derry tonight” “Tonight in The Dungloe was amazing! See you tomorrow in Granny Annie’s. I want a badge! Gracias!” “Great night in the Spirit Store last night First time I’ve seen the Naildrivers and they were brilliant!! Well done guys you made me feel 20 years younger (Alright 30 then)” “Another great night in an Brog. Don’t leave it another 3 months before a return visit to the venue” “Great gig last night!! Ye had the Brog bouncin off the walls!!!!”‘ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XV1UXRagCpo
