What happens when a group of professional Irish-Celtic musicians plays '80s music?
Flogging Seagulls is a unique '80s live music experience. Utilizing traditional Irish instruments (accordion, banjo, fiddle, mandolin) and a rocking rhythm section, Flogging Seagulls plays all the great '80s New Wave music from the classic KROQ era: Depeche Mode, The Cure, Duran Duran, Billy Idol, The Smiths, Culture Club, Eurythmics, The Police, Flock of Seagulls, and dozens more. It's an '80s dance party with an Irish flair!
There are many great '80s bands, but there's only one Flogging Seagulls. Shamrock of the '80s!
Flogging Seagulls is a member of the L.A. County Arts Commission Musicians Roster.
Flogging Seagulls was such an amazing band to work with. They were easy going, beyond helpful and accommodating and most of all super talented! The energy they brought to our event for Cigar & Spirits Magazine's End of Summer Bash was incredible! They were so good that they were even offered a wedding gig from an attendee at our event. Would highly recommend them if you're looking for a fun, professional, high energy and talented band that will keep your guests dancing and singing the whole way through!
Price Range: $300 and up
