"BARQ, a band I discovered the last time I took a trip to Ireland, brought the crowd right up to the stage with their “agrosoul” tunes. The lead singer/lyricist Jess Kavanagh is electric. She commands the room and teases her audience. Jess vibes to her music as much as the audience, and it is a rare treat to see her brand of enthusiastic, no-holds-barred performance. The funky arrangements of their three singles, especially “That Thing You Love,” had the crowd totally involved."
