Thunderchild originally formed in 1982 to play our own original material,with a
few covers played in our own style.We played all over Ireland for the next 10 years.We split up for three years then we came back as a three piece under the name The china white blues band for three years in the nineties until we
went on to other various musical projects.

Thunderchild reformed in 2006 and with a few changes are now back to a five man crew, with the inclusion of two new first class guitarists, David Strain and Brett Arthur along with our outstanding new vocalist Eamon Killen Lead Vocals they line up with the two remaining original Thunderchild members Pete Cairns Bass and Stephen Hale Drums.
