The Celtic Punk band was founded in 1997 in Los Angeles by Dublin-born musician David King. The band is comprised of Dave King (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, bodhran), Bridget Regan (violin, tin whistle, vocals), Dennis Casey (guitar, vocals), Matt Hensley (accordion, concertina, vocals), Nathen Maxwell (bass guitar, vocals), Spencer Swain (mandolin, banjo, guitar, vocals), and Mike Alonso (drums, percussion). Starting out as the house band for Molly Maloneâs in Los Angeles and building a loyal following through endless touring, Flogging Molly has become a staple in the punk scene over the past 20 years, kicking off with its raucous debut showcase, Swagger, and continuing through itâs five additional studio albums. With numerous late-night television appearances under their belt, its sell-out Salty Dog Cruise through the Caribbean, and yearly St. Patrickâs Day Festival in Los Angeles, the band is currently working on the Rise Records follow-up to its latest LP, Life Is Good. Recently, the band reissued Swagger with exclusive tracks, an Irish traditional set, a 60-minute video feature, and exclusive merch in a collectable box set.
Flogging Mollyâs Dave King and Bridget Regan have been in Wexford, Ireland since lockdown was declared nearly one year ago, while the rest of the band have been in their homes across the U.S. And while there is nothing easy about crossing international borders for a full production live show at this moment in history â quarantine policies are ever-changing as the global response continues to evolve â itâs this reality that we all share, which is exactly why the band felt it needed to happen this St. Patrickâs Day. With the safety of the band, touring and film crew, and everyone on hand as top priority, the next priority was a good time â and a loud, raucous, and joyous celebration of all that we â the band and fans â have to be thankful for.
Says Dave King: âIn any house, even in the darkest of times, thereâs always a room, a room for celebration. In over twenty years together, this is our first ever show from the Emerald Isle on St. Patrickâs Day. Welcome to Ireland. Letâs celebrate! From our family to yours, SlÃ¡inte!
In the lead up to the event, BushmillsÂ® is offering fans the opportunity to partake in their âFirst Whiskeyâ program. As a friendly Irish gesture ahead of St. Patrickâs Day, whiskey lovers 21+ across the U.S. can safely order a Bushmills Irish WhiskeyÂ® to-go from their neighborhood pub and the beloved Irish whiskey will cover the cost, through Thursday, March 18. Terms and conditions apply, learn more details on the BushmillsÂ® âFirst Whiskeyâ Rebate Program HERE.

A portion of the bandâs proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to a favorite charity of theirs, Sweet Reliefâs COVID-19 Crew Fund, which supports road crew members grounded and out of work during the global pandemic.Â
