The Original Rudeboys are an Irish acoustic hip hop band from Dublin, Ireland and were formed in March 2011 when a unique realisation occurred between all three members. Offering a distinct and refreshing sound with a combination of acoustic guitar and ukulele blended with soulful and hip hop voices, The Original Rudeboys have created a new fusion of music whilst continuing to respect their different influences.

The band consists of Luke Manchini Sean "Neddy" Arkins (Rap Vocals), Robert Burch (Guitar and Vocals) and Sean "Walshy" Walsh (Ukulele). The band's genre has been described as a cross between hip hop and indie.
