HOIST THE COLORS
Hoist the Colors plays a blend of punk rock, traditional Irish music, and American folk and bluegrass. The band began humbly, in lead singer and songwriter Josh Linden’s living room in 2007. Raucous and spirited performances attracted a loyal following and word quickly spread. The band soon found themselves playing marathon pub shows that regularly drew packed houses, all blood, sweat, and spilled beer. The band’s commitment to their music has begun to pay off, resulting in sold out shows in their hometown and recognition across the U.S. Miles To Go Before We Sleep was named the best celtic album of the year by Celtic Music blogger Grinning Beggar, was named the #2 album of the year (Editor’s Pick) by punk rock blog Dying Scene, and their video for “Gordie Lachance” was featured on CMT.com. In addition, venerated music magazine Alternative Press named the band one of their 100 Bands You Need to Know for 2013.

Powered by indie record label Invisible Mass, the California Celts are the Armitage brothers from the hills of Yucca Valley in the Mojave Desert, CA. On drums is everyone's friend Kevin Paterson. From Riverside, CA, on guitar, melodica and vocals is Miguelangelo La Marque Casares a.k.a. “Pirate Mike.” Newest member Christopher Clayton Shurly rounds out the line up on the six string.
"The California Celts have an onslaught of a show, playing everything from their classics like 'Slow Down Sister' and 'Love is Stronger Than Pride' to obscure and infectious Hibernian reels." --Jamie Winpenny, Honolulu Weekly, March 15-21 2006 California Celts Promo.Visit their website HERE.

The McKintree Boys
The McKintree Boys formed in 2011 with members from longtime Inland Empire rock group Quick Before Sinking. Scott, Mark, and Adam have been consistently gigging together around the Southland since 2004 and bring considerable experience to this energetic group. With the addition of David Dickey III on fiddle and mandolin, the boys have begun performing their brand of Trad-Irish rock across the IE with extremely positive response. They play a wide variety of traditional tunes, covers from bands like Flogging Molly and Great Big Sea, as well as a few rollicking originals.

THE BELLES OF BEDLAM
From hauntingly beautiful to cleverly naughty, the Belles of Bedlam turn Celtic folk up a notch! The Belles originated as a comedy troupe that sang Celtic music at renaissance faires and festivals. Soon after, they began to include bawdier, yet witty songs in their repertoire. While they’ve never strayed from their comedic roots, over the years the troupe has grown into an acoustic band that continues to play traditional and original Celtic folk-- now infused with a healthy dose of blues, rock and gospel to create their unique sound. Come take a bawdy vaudevillian romp with the Belles of Bedlam!Visit their website HERE.
