Based in New York City, Black 47 is often described as a Celtic rock band though they use many different influences in their music, including Reggae, Hip Hop, Modern and Trad Jazz, Lower East Side Noise and other sounds from the streets of New York City. The band is made up of Irish, British and American citizens, and was formed in the Bronx, by Larry Kirwan and Chris Byrne in 1989.
