You know them as the steerage band in Titanic. You've seen them at festivals and in pubs all over the northern hemisphere, now join the Gaelic Storm community and share your stories.

Their dynamic stage show features rousing, upbeat vocals, wild energetic dance tunes, haunting ballads and infectious madcap humor. Playing over 100 shows per year, Gaelic Storm has drawn record-breaking crowds at Milwaukee's famed Irish-Fest (in '98, '99, ‘01 and ‘02), Celtic-Fest Chicago, the Dublin Ohio Irish Festival and the Pittsburgh Irish Festival, as well as Festival Interceltique in Lorient, France (the largest Celtic festival in the world). Most recently Gaelic Storm broke the attendance record in June of 2003 at the Albuquerque BioPark, the record was previously held by Alan Jackson. The band has likewise played to capacity crowds at countless clubs, theaters and performing arts centers across the country.

Gaelic Storm never fail to leave audiences on their feet: reeling, dancing and screaming for more! Routinely, devoted fans drive for miles to catch a Gaelic Storm show. As a result, the audience frequently sings along word-for-word in classic pub fashion throughout the band's set. Nominated as "performers of the year" in 1999 and 2000 by the National Association of Campus Activities, Gaelic Storm has garnered a huge following among college students from Hawaii to New Hampshire.
