RANDY BUCKLEY - Lead Vocals/Guitar
I've been playing piano and guitar for 19 years. I absolutely love playing music and wish to make it a career. I got into Irish music kind of by accident. My mom was a fan of that whole Riverdance thing when it came out and bought a cd one day thinking it was the soundtrack to the show. Instead, it was a cd with the Riverdance theme and then a bunch of traditional Irish tunes, so she gave it to me. I couldn't stop listening to it. I've been listening to and playing Irish music ever since.

DAVE HAMMONS - Drum/Vocals
I've wanted to play a musical instrument since I was ten. I dreamed of becoming the proverbial "rock star". I was about 28 when my brother had me listen to a performer by the name of John Faulkner and I fell in love with traditional Irish music. From there it was the Dubliners, the Chieftains, the Pogues, and many others. Then, my brother went to Ireland and brought back this funky lookin frame drum, and I instantly wanted to learn it. He plays a mean tin whistle. I always wanted to accompany him, so I started playing and have been for about years now.

I began playing the bass in high school and played Dixieland, civic symphony, summer concert in the park, jazz, polkas, country, western, bluegrass, dance band, and gospel. My sons encouraged me to give Irish music a try and I love it!
