    So it's sad for us to announce but Boathouse are no more.

    We've had a cracking time and want to thank everyone who has supported and championed us over the last few years.

    Also thanks to promoters who stuck us on their bill and all those who contributed to the recordings.

    It's been a fun ride.

    Really sorry to hear this guys, I honestly think Belfast has lost one of its finest bands, you'll be sorely missed. Good luck to all of you in whatever you do next, and thanks for the memories.

    It kinda all came a bit quick really. In the space of about 2 weeks we've lost 2 members. Hard to take in as I'd some great plans in place for summer recordings and fresh gigs/touring come Sep/Oct but not to be I'm afraid.

    Just to note that there was nothing acrimonious about it all though. Not meaning to speak for the others but Kieran, Micky and I all wish Amy and Keir best of luck for the future. It just seems too much of a gaping hole without them to continue Boathouse and would seem a bit like flogging a dead horse.

    I'm pretty gutted and down about it, but starting afresh seems like the plan from here. We're going to start the hunt for members of a new group with Kieran, Micky and myself involved pretty soon.

    I had a plan to try to have a last Belfast gig but there's not really time now as someone's heading off next week!

    Thanks for all the kind words folks.

    A crying shame. Boathouse will be sorely missed, but I'm at least a wee bit comforted to know that you'll all still be making music. Best of luck folks

    that is a real shame... i only saw you guys once and it was an incredible experience!!!

    I've loved being in Boathouse from day one. I couldn't have asked for a nicer, committed, down-to-earth and loyal group of people to play with...and all non-smokers!!!

    This may be the end of the name Boathouse, but the band core is still intact and I have every faith that the guys will be coming back bigger, better and brassier.

    I think they are going to call themselves 'The Recorder Club' or something like that... :shock:
