NEWSLETTER: Green Beer and Wedding Season Near 

Last we wrote was just before a crazy snow storm hit the DC area called Snowzilla.  Unfortunately it canceled all our shows for the weekend, but left Sara with a mini-vacation as school was out for the entire next week.  Luckily we were smart though and tried out a new feature on Facebook called "Facebook Live", where for 30 minutes at a time were able to put on a live concert two nights in a row from our living room.  It was fun and helped our cabin fever as well as others with it.  We plan on doing another live concert on Facebook sometime down the road. 


St Patrick's Day Madness 

March isn't just for college basketball brackets.  It also hosts one of the biggest drinking days of the year where many people pretend they have Irish blood--St Patrick's Day.  Green beer will be poured, amateur drinkers will get their first taste of Irish Car Bombs, and for us, we have a couple shows to note: 

March 17th 6pm-1am 
McGinty's St Patrick's Day Celebration 
Silver Spring, MD 

For the 6th straight year, Brian will be hosting a lineup of five local artists all night long in the downstairs bar of McGinty's in downtown Silver Spring, MD.  We will be a part of the night playing around 7pm for a set.  The night also includes local favorites Jason Masi, Throwing Plates, and Andrew Burleson.

March 18th 10pm-1am 
Daniel O'Connell's 
Alexandria, VA 

As our trio with Shaun, this is bound to be an epic night and for the first time we'll play a few Irish rock tunes along with our blend of rock and pop upbeat tunes. 

Expect large crowds out both nights and we highly recommend Ubering to and from to be safe.  Hope to see you, Slainte! 


So You Put a Ring On It 

Over the past 3 years we've been getting more and more wedding inquiries and are up to having played around 15 weddings.  We have played ceremonies, cocktail hours, and receptions separately as well as playing all three for the entire wedding.  Our reviews are stellar because we make anyone's wedding about them and the type of music they want.  Plus we work very closely with coordinating entrance and exit music, logistics for setting up, and meet up with the client and any wedding coordinators or venues to go over all the details.  And yes, we do play same sex weddings for those wondering. 

If you or anyone you know got married and are interested in acoustic music for any portion of a wedding, you can reach us through our contact page for rates and more details on how we work. 


Thanks again for reading and this time next month we'll be taking a little vacation north to New England for a week for lobsta, brews, and wicked fun.  Til then, enjoy the last month of winter and we look forward to sharing a green beer with you! 

Much love, 
Sara & Brian

Original Shows this Fall 

It's been a while since we've done an all original show, and like that we have TWO to announce!  Please join us for these upcoming shows with our own music.

November 21st 7-10pm
Cafe Amouri's First Basket House
107 Church St NE, Vienna, VA 22180

We're joining forces with Third Heart and Peyson Tremayne to play a Basket House show on Saturday, November 21st at Cafe Amouri in Vienna, VA.  What's a Basket House show?  Back in the 1960s the Village in NYC had a growing folk scene and often you'd find a basket being passed around to support the artist playing.  We're happy to be a part of this as Cafe Amouri is locally owned and also runs Vienna Idol which we were a part of this year.  Please make a trip out to see some locally grown music!

December 9th 6-8pm
"Rock and Roll with a Punch"
Renaissance Washington in Dupont Circle
1143 New Hampshire Ave NW Washington, DC  20037

Join us for a couple hours of music as well as a local beverage.  This hotel is pairing music up with local beer, wine or a cocktail for a relaxing happy hour show near DuPont Circle next month. 

Vienna Idol 

We are proud to announce that we made it into the final round of Vienna Idol! Come on out to the Vienna Town Green on Friday, June 5th at 6:30pm to support us and vote for us to win! 

February Shows!!! 

We took a little hiatus from playing a lot shows so we could recover from being sick over the winter holidays, but now we're BACK! 
We've got TWO awesome original music shows in the month of February in two very different locations, so we're hoping we can get all of our friends, fans, and family to support us. 
The first show is going to be at the Rock & Roll Hotel on H Street in northeast DC. We will be playing as part of The 9 Songwriter Series on Saturday, February 7th and you can get tickets now for $15. The line up is killer and we're really excited to share the stage with our friends Jamie & James, who just finished up their Indiegogo campaign to record an album! This is your chance to hear 9 songwriters perform all original music, and it's so awesome to see all of them collaborating and having fun together!

The next amazing show will be at the Tally Ho Theatre in downtown Leesburg, Virginia. Since re-opening they have had national acts like Vertical Horizon, Carbon Leaf, The Gin Blossoms, and even Kix! We are honored to be opening up for fellow local musician and long time friend Jason Masi, who will be playing with his full band consisting of Ben Tufts, Patrick Thornton, and Mark Williams! Tickets are only $10 in advance so get them now!!! 

Like we've always said before, we couldn't be doing this without all of your love and support, so we really hope to see everyone there! We will have t-shirts and CDs for sale, as well as free stickers, and you might even hear some new music from us!!!!
