When asked to describe the group Sean McGuinness of the Dublin City Ramblers said "The ShamRogues are a fantastic band and it was a pleasure to be in their company, they're keeping Irish music alive"
So, get your arse down to the pub and join in the craic with The ShamRogues and if things go according to plan....
IT'S A NIGHT YOU'LL NEVER REMEMBER !!!!!
Several terms have been used to describe The ShamRogues in recent times and 'the best Irish band this side of Galway' seems to be the one that captures the essence of this group of musicians.
Put together by Banjo player Jim Phelan from Stradbally in Co. Laois, The ShamRogues have built up a large following throughout the Mid Atlantic region, with an ever-growing group of supporters form Baltimore to New York City.
Jim is joined by Adam Wyatt on Bodhran and Vocals, Johnny Benson on Fiddle, Chris Marsheck on Guitar and Vocals, Gary Peresta on Bass and the breathtaking Irish Dancer Katie Fox who stuns the audience with her nonpareil footwork.
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 !!!
'We've launched a lot of Irish bands from this stage and I have to say that The ShamRogues are
one of the best we've ever seen!'
