Nothing will get the beer flowing and your brogue a lilting faster than a Dropkick Murphys concert. Celtic punk rock is what the Dropkick Murphys are all about. That and making sure that everyone has a great time at their shows. Read on if you are intrigued.
Massachusetts natives, the Dropkick Murphys are influenced by the likes of The Poges, The Dubliners and The Clash. Their brand of high-octane music and the fact that they never stop touring has built them up quite a following over their 15 years together as a band. Starting off playing in their parents’ bands to having their songs used on EA video games and in film like “Fever Pitch” and “The Departed” they have come a long way, baby. They have even become the unofficial band of the MLB’s boston Red Sox.
As you would expect from a band with Irish heritage their St. Patrick’s Day concerts are said to be something to behold. Following along in the path carved by their ancestors they also support working class and union causes.
