Labelled as 'The Best Irish band to EVER play in Baltimore', 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 recently performed a series of sell out shows in Ireland 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, the internationally renowned fiddler Johnny Benson, Chris Marsheck on Guitar, Gary Peresta on Bass, Rich Boshart on Drums and 8-time World Irish Dancing Championship 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 !!!
