The Danse Society Short Info

This is Paul Gilmartin's Danse Society which he is a founder member of The Danse Society from the 1980's.
Paul Gilmartin has gathered new musicians around him to yet again recreate The Danse Society. Most crucial was finding a vocalist who could provide what the band needed and what the fans wanted. He found it in a local hero who had been around in the old days and who still performs professionally today. Brian Jay, a powerful singer with Seventh Son, captured the ethos of The Danse Society immediately. His vocals in the The Danse Society genre have elements of Ian Astbury of The Cult as well as recollections of Steven Rawlings in them, provide the missing element which was guaranteed to resurrect The Danse Society back to full glory. Dave Whitaker continues to provide support and friendship as well as recording facilities, while Craig Eddington has been brought in to provide live keyboards and fresh input to the musical process. A devout fan, Elliot Wheeler took the opportunity through Facebook to get on board and his guitar is a seamless addition to the TDS sound.

Gilmartin has now established and consolidated his position. With the original Danse Society, everything was up in the air. It had all been done on a nod and a wink and most of the old legal entities that administered things for them were either defunct or had been bought out/dissolved or renamed. So, along with a friend of over 30 years, he set about legitimizing The Danse Society.
