The ShamRogues have been entertaining crowds all over the East Coast since 2009 with their unique brand of Irish music and dance. From Washington D.C. to Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and the famous Irish venues of New York City, the band has attracted fans of all ages and walks of life wherever they travel with their show. Having performed a series of sell out shows in Ireland two years in a row the band has blasted onto the International scene in a blaze of electric fiddles and banjos.
Formed by banjo player and County Laois native Jim Phelan, the band features Adam Wyatt on Vocals and Bodhran, Sarah Stepanik on Fiddle, Chris Marsheck on Guitar, Gary Peresta on Bass, Evan Phillips on Drums and 8-time World Irish Dancing Finalist Katie Fox.
Not a band to stand around on stage blasting out song after song, The ShamRogues like to involve their audience in a fun, lively evening of songs and stories of Ireland, and God help anyone who forgets to clap along !!!
"The ShamRogues not only deliver a great musical and visual performance, they engaged our customers and helped me create a night that never existed before. Our bar staff remarked to me that the band was courteous and very easy to deal with. Shortly after their performance, my General Manager told me to book them right away for next year. Top notch high energy Irish music that will energize your night!“

"Frederick County Public Libraries was delighted to feature The ShamRogues at their 15th Celtic Concert at Mt. St. Mary’s University. Their performance evoked all the fun of the St. Patrick’s Day holiday for the sell-out crowd and people were happy to clap along to old favorites as well as new. Concert goers particularly enjoyed Katie Fox’s step dancing and the historical background the band provided for many of the tunes. After fifteen performances in the North Frederick County area, many people claimed that The ShamRogues were their favorite!"
