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.

In order to get a recording contract, they played at Logo, a pub in Hamburg, in front of 16 representatives of various record labels in 1999. The band was quickly given several contract offers, from which they settled on Virgin Records.

Their first album Tuesday (produced by Steve Lyon) and the first single "Supergirl" were major successes. Both went gold and became the most-played song on German radio in 2000. Reamonn became stars and played at many festivals and concerts. In autumn 2000 they went on their own tour to promote their first album with support from Heyday. Future songs "Josephine" and "Waiting There For You" achieved similar success.

The second album Dream No. 7 was released in 2001. The name comes from the number of their former home and rehearsal room in Munzingen, a suburb of Freiburg. With the single "Weep", they had a guest appearance in the German movie Mondscheintarif.

Their third album Beautiful Sky was recorded in Spain and released in 2003. It reached No. 3 in the German album charts and went double platinum. The band toured with Robbie Williams in Switzerland, Austria, Portugal, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Their 2006 album Wish was produced in Los Angeles with producer Greg Fidelman, who had worked with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Johnny Cash.

On July 7, 2007 they performed at the German leg of Live Earth in Hamburg. Also, lead singer Rea Garvey did vocals for Paul van Dyke's song "Let Go".
