Reamonn is a German rock band that is well known all over Europe. Its members are Rea Garvey (voice/acoustic guitar), Uwe (lead guitar), Sebi (saxophone/Hammond organ/keyboards), Mike Gommeringer (Gomezz) (drums), and Phil (bass guitar).
In 1997, Rea Garvey left his former band The Reckless Pedestrians and home town Tralee, Ireland to go to Germany with only 50 DM and a demo record in his pocket. He put an ad into the local paper Stockacher Anzeiger which stated, "Singer needs band for a record and shows." Mike Gommeringer (Gomezz) saw it and accurately predicted it must have been Garvey, whose original band he had once seen live. They met up and recruited Uwe, Sebi and Phil. In 1998 the band was set up. Their first gig was on New Year's Eve 1998/1999 in Stockach.
