Moony from Opaque gives an insight into the fun-loving folksy collective that has kept us dancing for over a decade…
Performing in the main auditorium at 6:40pm on 13th January…
Opaque has been going for nearly 20 years. I met most of the guys at various parties and festivals and recruited them for the band.
We have been influenced by most types of music but have mainly been influenced by the British festival scene.
Our latest album ‘A Little Belief’ if a mix of gypsy swing, carnival folk music with classic indie electro influences.
We really enjoy playing the Liechtenstein Polka as our ode to the land of Liechtenstein. In particular I enjoy being able to dance around on this one as I do not play guitar.
We just want to enjoy ourselves and make people smile! We mainly appeal to the misfits and the freaks and are very comfortable amongst them.
