Crossbow

xbowmusic.com

“CrossBow is a high-energy Celtic band originating in Allendale, Michigan and has had the pleasure of sharing their distinct sound to a wide variety of audiences. The dynamic group initially met at Grand Valley State University as students and young musicians where they founded one of campus’ first Celtic music organizations.
While CrossBow can be heard at Irish and Scottish music festivals across the Midwest, much of the thrill in experiencing a CrossBow performance actually transcends the music itself. This excitement stems from the contagious joy and comradery shared between the players, and communicated directly with their audience. Apparent from the moment they hit the stage – these high-energy musicians naturally feed off of one another, creating a dynamic, wholly unique performance that shouldn’t be missed.”

The American Rogues

“ABSOLUTELY UNFORGETTABLE!” — FANREALM”
 
WITH HEADLINING SHOWS IN ASIA, EUROPE, CANADA, AND FROM NEW YORK TO CALIFORNIA THE AMERICAN ROGUES ARE TAKING ON THE WORLDS OF CELTIC, ROCK, ROOTS, PATRIOTIC, WORLD, MILITARY, JAPANESE AND CLASSICAL MUSIC.
 
— THE OFFICIAL BAND OF THE NATIONAL NAVY SEAL MUSEUM —
If the 78th Fraser Pipe Band sat down with Wolfstone and the Dave Matthews Band, and then asked some friends from a symphonic orchestra and a Japanese taiko drum group to join them the resulting sound might resemble the AMERICAN ROGUES. For years the performances of this Celtic/Rock/World music group have electrified audiences around the world. They have added to their ever-growing family of fans — affectionately known as the Rogue Army — at music festivals, theaters, Highland Games, clubs, resorts & casinos, and corporate events — anywhere that presents top-quality, high-energy music. Their hard won road successes have established them as artists with bona fide international acclaim. Renowned for their musical skill, quick wit, and engaging stage show the AMERICAN ROGUES have mastered the art of creating an immediate connection with their audiences. The AMERICAN ROGUES are fast becoming a household name with music lovers around the world, loved by young and old of all backgrounds.

Through their support of the troops the American Rogues have performed USO-type tours of Japan, Italy, Spain, Guam, and Guantanamo Bay, as well as military bases in Canada. They volunteer as part of the Honor Flight program for WWII Veterans, they’ve appeared with the U.S. Air Force Symphony at DAR Constitution Hall in Wasington, D.C., and they’ve helped raise funds for Operation Ward 57 and other Veterans charities. They are also the Official Band of the National Navy SEAL Museum and have a standing invitation to perform at their annual Muster in Ft. Pierce, Florida.

Stone Clover

Stone Clover was literally born above and Irish pub in downtown Detroit. Front man Pauly Brady formed the band in 2009 while living above the pub his grandparents built, the Old Shillelagh.
The band started out playing music at pubs and events in the Irish community but quickly expanded to larger venues and music festivals. Stone Clover’s original approach to song writing is a melding of pub style tunes mixes with aspects of rock, punk, gypsy, folk, and Americana. They affectionally call this style of their own “Paddy Slag” as it clearly comes from Irish tradition but also has so many other influences as well.
A high energy stage show mixed with anything from fun and fast takes on traditional songs to their own infectious originals is what to expect.

The group consists of Pauly Brady (lead vocals, 6 and 12 string guitars), Marc Brockway (bass), Taylor Izak (violin), James McCue (drums) and Connor Payne (back up vocals, mandolin and accordion).
