The Koubas

Still riding high from a successful album release and Irish tour, The Koubas hit back (“pow!!!”) with their new single, “Stars”. The crowd favourite from the lads’ debut offering was an obvious single choice, with catchy in-your-face verses and a rousing sing-along chorus. The track is currently available for download on itunes.

The Koubas completed their debut LP things I don’t like to talk about in May of last year and set off on an extensive Irish tour. The first single “Get Over Yourself” was released to rave reviews, receiving widespread radio play on both regional and national stations including playlists on 98fm and Cool fm to name but a few. The album was launched to a sell-out crowd at Dublin’s Crawdaddy venue and their spirited performance further fuelled the momentum behind the Dublin quartet. Fast becoming known for their energetic live shows, the four-piece have been tipped by critics for 2012.

It took frontman Stevie J a journey half way around the world to find the right ingredients to form the Koubas. On a trip to South Africa, he met drummer Jakub “kouba” and immediately hit it off. The newfound musical partnership led to a string of new songs Stevie J, many

The most authentic representation of AC/DC in their prime with Bon Scott at the helm. Absolutely nothing in Europe comes close to the accuracy and energy these guys deliver

We believe that a true AC/DC tribute should be as close to the look, sound and energy as the real thing. Whole Lotta Voltage makes the audience feel that they are watching the kings of hard rock, LIVE, at their peak in 1979. Nothing comes close to this exact recreation of the notoriously wild style show of AC/DC. So if you love AC/DC and you want to see it done properly, come and check out WHOLE LOTTA VOLTAGE!
