Brewed by Noon Tribal rhythms by an Irish griot is how Brewed By Noon leader/percussionist Sean Noonan describes the band. Griot describes a West African poet, praise singer, and wandering musician. Combining progressive jazz (Weather Report and Miles Davis [Bitches Brew era]), African tribal rhythms and stories (Fela Kuti and Paul Simon's Graceland) mixed with some Irish lyrics and attitude and you have the basis for Brewed By Noon.

He has played with both Thierno Camara's West African Waaw Band and with the jazz-punk trio, THE HUB.
