The Whiskey Brothers Irish Band!  
EVERY SUNDAY 5:30-7:30 at 
Ballydoyle Irish Pub in Downers Grove, IL
I won't be there when the Ren Faire starts, July5th-Labor Day, but the band will be!  This is a traditional acoustic show, just like session music in Ireland.  I play mandolin, penny whistle, and bodhran.  My band sits at a table, plays jigs, reels, drinking songs, etc... and we drink.  Very fun, family friendly, no cover!  For a complete Whiskey Brothers Schedule, visit our website below!  We have a TON of gigs in MARCH!

Have you hugged an
