Sons of Malarkey (SOM) have a foot in Irish Trad and a foot in Celtic Rock and are the perfect mix of the two. Founded in 2009, their smooth vocals and fantastic music capture listeners from the first note. What began as jam sessions around kitchen tables has become a seasoned live band that performs throughout the Pacific Northwest. SOM has always had a strong love of the traditional, but they love the modern elements as well. An SOM set includes covers of traditional Irish favorites such as “Finnegan’s Wake” and “Whiskey in the Jar”, as well as toe-tapping originals like “Gone, Gone, Gone”.
Sons of Malarkey perform regularly in the Portland area at such popular venues as The Dublin Pub and Mississippi Pizza, as well as at Celtic music festivals throughout the Northwest, such as the Newport Celtic Festival and the Portland Pirate Festival. The band has been honored to be a part of the lineup for the Galway Bay Irish Music Festival in Ocean Shores, WA for the past four years. They consistently rank among the Top 10 Celtic bands in Oregon at Reverbnation.com.
Sons of Malarkey…offer a special style of spirited music, infectious to audiences enjoying them in pubs and festivals in the NW over the last few years. When you hear the band in person, you can’t help but be engaged from the very first note. — 67 Music
