It was that time of the year again where Ireland’s hottest movers and shakers of the music industry turned out to celebrate the Hotpress Yearbook & Who’s Who Launch Party 2012, in association with Jameson.

The publication first launched back in 1979 and since then has been the definitive guide to the Irish music, media and entertainment industry and the Who’s Who guide to the movers, shakers and power makers of the nation. Niall Stokes of Hot Press hosted the launch along with a host of well-known names at The Workman’s Club music venue.

Guests who turned out on the night for the music and entertainment industry event included Danny O’Reilly of the Coronas, Irish singer-songwriter Mundy, Nick Seymour, SJ Wai and the Dirty Epics as well as musician Brush Shiels, award winning Irish actress and singer Maria Doyle Kennedy, illusionist Steve Spade and upcoming Wicklow band Children of the Son.  Refreshing Jameson, Ginger and Lime drinks were served alongside Thai bites from Diep.

The Hot Press Yearbook has been described as 'the bible' by a plethora of the industry's most influential figures, including Bob Geldof, Dave Fanning, Tom Dunne, Eleanor McEvoy, RTE producer Ian Wilson – and many more.
