The Pittsburgh-based Bastard Bearded Irishmen fill the void of Irish rock n roll between Boston and LA. They are cutting their own path, inspired by bands like The Dubliners, The Pogues, Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly with an original, ferocious blend of rock, punk, acoustic and traditional, as well as contemporary Celtic. Bastard Bearded Irishmen, or BBI, began playing bars and small venues and since October 2008, have expanded their resume to include citywide events such as Pittsburgh Irish Festival, Shamrockin' and an opening slot on the 2011 Dropkick Murphy's Shamrock N Roll Tour in Pittsburgh, as well as a headlining slot on 105.9 The X's Halloween Party this past October 2011.Through great music, energetic performance, friendly attitudes and intricacies that only the Irishmen can provide, they have quickly become one of Pittsburghs favorite Celtic rock bands. Their formula is simple: upbeat tunes about beer, whiskey, booze and pretty lasses. They'll play classics like "Black Velvet Band" and "Whiskey in the Jar", and rock you with originals like "Mutiny" and "Drinkem, Drankem, Drunkem". Although they are consummate musical professionals (Danny has a Masters degree and teaches classical guitar at Cleveland School of Music, Rachel is a classically trained violist), they really know how to have fun and and put on one hell of a performance. The music will be great, you'll want to stomp your feet and dance and they promise that you will be entertained and left begging for more!
If you think you might like a band with a name like "The Bastard Bearded Irishmen," you'll definitely like this band.

The mission, of course, is to provide its own home-brewed taste of that acoustic-punk-Celtic blend...
...bashing out a rowdy repertoire of drinking songs, from classics like "Whiskey in the Jar" to such originals as "Drinkem', Drankem', Drunkem'."
