The Stubby Shillelaghs
The Stubby Shillelaghs
The band began in 2010 when long-time friends Andrew Mithun, Ryan Knaub, and Shaughnessy McDaniel decided to start "The Stubby Shillelaghs" as a small side project. In October of 2010 "Patrick's Pub" owner Greg Farnsworth, looking for an act to play his Halloween show, took a chance on the as-yet unproven Stubbies. The result was a resounding success which led to the band's weekly show, "Stubby Tuesdays". They recorded and released their first self-produced album "Stubbies Assemble!" on St. Patrick's Day of 2011. Following this there was an expansion into Denver and other parts of Colorado. The band has recently released their 2nd studio album "Whiskey Business" and their first live album "Parental Advisory Live!" and is looking forward to the many opportunities that have started to spring up around them.

Influences
The Dubliners, Flogging Molly, The Pogues, Dropkick Murphys, Real McKenzies, Heavy Metal, also I suppose seeing as Stout does power our drunken folk fury the Guinness brewery has to be on the list of influences.
Keep Britain Irish
Keep Britain Irish
It began in an unfinished basement in Littleton, Colorado as friends getting together and playing Irish Drinking songs. What soon resulted was Keep Britain Irish made up of four long time friends. Irish music was the common theme between guys who had very eclectic tastes.

Aaron Langton is a long time musician who makes the Stratocaster sing. Aaron spent many years tickling the ivories building his talent at music. Jamey Evans lends his voice to most of the songs while strumming the acoustic rhythm guitar. Years of singing and dabbling on the guitar have culminated in being the front man to Keep Britain Irish. Many years of marching band and fooling around in his garage brought Steve “Loverboy” Brosius to be pounding the skins in the band. Whether playing the kit or the bodhron, Steve lends his style to the sound. We even let him out to sing two songs….just two! Corey “Cdawg” Johnson grew up the son of a musician and band director. Having done some professional singing he also has always been fascinated by stringed instruments, learning to play as many as he can. Corey lays down the mandolin, penny whistle and the harmonica while provinding lead and backup vocals. We say we are a drinking band which means we want every time we play to be a party. We will keep it traditional with the Irish Pub songs, yet, we will also get our Irish on in music by the Pogues, Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys and the Young Dubliners. Our influences can be felt in our non Irish choices of our Ska-Irish Land Down Under or the driving rhythms of Johnny Cash or Rockin’ the Free World.

We formed a band to have fun and we want you to have fun with us. Come and check us out, we look forward to seeing you.

Slainte…see you at the pub.
