Billy Idol was an early architect of the sound, style, and fury of punk rock. His lip-curling sneer and fist-pumping persona vaulted him into the mainstream as one of MTV’s first megastars, making him one of the most recognizable faces in pop music.
A community celebration of new music from 3-6pm for free.
We know you will “knot” want to miss the Celtic Knot weekend kicking off with performances by fan favorites, Dulahan, joined by the Dwyer School of Irish Dance and McGovern Irish Dance.
Dulahan is based in Dayton, Ohio and has performed regionally for the past 19 years. They are one of 3 bands that have performed every year at the Dayton Celtic Festival since its inception and have also been a frequent performer at Flanagan’s annual St Patrick’s Day celebrations. Dulahan draws on the traditional Irish and Scottish music that heavily influenced the bands early years, and incorporates varied contemporary American influences to create its unique musical niche. Dulahan combines the energy and drive of Irish Instrumental music, a hint of Celtic Rock and smidge of American Bluegrass with the invocative songwriting of Americana, Roots and Folk to create an infectious hybrid sound.
Hailed as one of the “most important bands in music since the dawn of the rock and roll era,” by former President Bill Clinton, the legendary rock and roll band with horns, Chicago, came in as the highest charting American band in Billboard Magazine’s Top 125 Artists Of All Time. And Chicago is the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six consecutive decades.
A Dayton based instrumental blues/jazz fusion band that consists of bassist JR Erb, guitarist John Simon and drummer ‘Crazy’ Steve Przyzycki. Current feat. artist is saxophonist Greg Pfugh.
“Dayton, Ohio cow-punk band Viceroy Kings return with their country-tinged punk sound. Musically, they fall somewhere between Social Distortion and Two Cow Garage. Punk informed by the vibe of outlaw country. High energy numbers benefit from the addition of piano. Vocals bring to mind early Hot Water Music, Lars Frederickson, or Tom Waits after a couple lozenges. Rough around the edges working class punk.”
