Event

Gaelic Storm
On St. Patrick's Day, 1996, Patrick Murphy of Cork City, Ireland (vocals, piano, accordion, spoons, harmonica) officially joined forces with Steve Twigger of Coventry, England (vocals, guitar, mandolin, bouzouki), at O'Brien's pub in Santa Monica, CA., officially establishing the Celtic music group, Gaelic Storm.

Just one year later, Gaelic Storm was catapulted out of their formative pub haunts by an appearance in the blockbuster film Titanic  as the "party band" in the steerage scene. In 2003, Ryan Lacey (drums and world percussion) became a member and Pete Purvis of Merrickville, Ontario (uilleann pipes, tin whistle, deger pipes and highland pipes) joined the group in 2004. The newest member of the band, Jessie Burns (fiddle), originally hails from Suffolk England and now lives in Colorado.

Other highlights from Gaelic Storm's career include seven Billboard Chart topping albums, a DVD, a full-length concert film featured on HD.net in 2007-2008, song placement on two EA Sports Games, a 2008 Hallmark greeting card featuring their song Kiss Me I'm Irish,as well as countless television and radio appearances. Gaelic Storm has sold out hundreds of theatres and performing
arts centers and has now played to audiences totaling in the millions.

Gaelic Storm released their 7th album What's the Rumpus? (Lost Again Records) in July 2008 with a stellar debut at #1 on the Billboard World Album Chart, #1 on the iTunes World Album Chart and #5 on the Billboard Internet Album Chart. Inspired by the music that drives their loyal fan base, What's the Rumpus? is a wild party of an album, full of colorful characters and outrageous stories, flavored with Gaelic Storm's signature acoustic sound that gets you dancing and never lets you go.

Consistently touring over 125 dates per year, Gaelic Storm has headlined the world's largest Celtic festivals and mainstream popular music events all around the globe, including  the world's largest Irish Festival, Milwaukee Irish Fest.

Appearing with Gaelic Storm are three championship dancers from The Tony Comerford School of Irish Dance, to round out the whole evening.
