Virgil & The Accelerators @ The Bullingdon, Oxford
Monday 18 May 2015, 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Virgil McMahon started playing his father’s mandolin at the tender age of four and by his early teens, he was absorbing the sounds of Hendrix, Billy Gibbons, Bonamassa and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Joining his father’s band The Accelerators, it soon became apparent that Virgil’s destiny was soon to change and it wasn’t long before the band was reborn as Virgil & The Accelerators. Two years later in 2008, when 14-year old brother Gabriel McMahon stepped into the breach, he quickly developed into a powerhouse drummer and the seed was sown for the growth of a formidable band. With the addition of Jack Alexander Timmis on bass in 2010, the final chapter was written and the dynamics, raw energy and emotionally-charged power of this creative young combination exploded onto the music scene.
