The Mahones + Sir Reg
From an Irish pub to an Academy Award winning movie: THE MAHONES have come a long way in 29 years. Heralded as pioneers of the Irish punk scene, and internationally recognized as one of the best and hardest working punk outfits around, The Mahones formed on St. Patrick's Day in 1990, and have been working on their own brand of Irish punk ever since. With a working class ethic and a love of classic punk, Dublin-born Finny McConnell (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Songwriter) formed the band to combine his love of punk rock with his Irish culture. Alongside McConnell are Sean Riot Ryan (Bass, Vocals), Michael O’Grady (Tin Whistle, Accordion, Vocals), Al Baby Webster (Drums, Percussion), Nicole Kaiser (Accordion, Vocals) and occasionally Gina Romantini (Fiddle, Vocals).
The band has toured through 35 countries internationally, headlined festivals all over the world, and has been honoured to share a stage with nearly all of their favourite bands! The band grew from Irish pubs and punk squats, to halls, theatres and arenas, touring relentlessly since their start, and is famous for an incredible high-energy live show.
SIR REG is an energetic seven piece from Sweden fronted by Irishman Brendan Sheehy on vocals, who left his home-town of Dublin to come to Sweden to fulfill his dream – to put together the most amazing band possible.
With songs about everything from the issues of modern day society to finding the right bar on a Saturday night, combined with strong melodies and explosive live shows, SIR REG have made a name for themselves in the Celtic punk and rock scene.
