The Bogmen play The Stephen Talkhouse

August 5, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

The Bogmen

Billy Campion met Bill and Brendan Ryan in the late 1970s. Sharing a passion for music, they started a band, The Plummers.

During college, the group picked up bassist Mark Wike, drummer Clive Tucker and percussionist P. J. O’Connor. With this lineup, the band called itself The Bogmen, in honor of what Campion called its “tribal, huntish” sound.

In 1995, after playing at every bar, club and retirement home in the tri-state area, the band from Huntington was signed to Arista Records and released its first album “Life Begins at 40 Million” which was produced by Jerry Harrison of the Talking Heads.

Brenden Ryan’s wife was killed in the September 11th Attacks. Shortly thereafter band reunited for a benefit concert at Irving Plaza, which resulted in the release of the live album “Love at Irving Plaza, 2001”. The band played well-attended holiday shows at Manhattan venues in the following years and released a studio EP “Looking For Heaven In The Barrio” in 2010.
