The Business are sorry to announce the recent passing of our close friend, musical brother and long-time bass player, Jim Tate.
On-stage Jim held countless audiences captivated with his mesmerising playing, and off-stage Jim held the band together with his barrage of countless, unending corny jokes. Where Jim went, he lit up the room and wherever Jim is now we’re sure he’s still rockin’. He will always be a huge part of this band and an even bigger part of our lives. We will miss him every day.
Our thoughts are with his family and numerous friends at this tough time.
The Business are one of Ireland’s finest and longest performing blues bands with a history dating back to 1981. Over the years the band has maintained a hard working schedule bringing the best in blues and rock to the country.
