While it may have been a “mishap” as to how they were formed, their music is not left up to chance. Inspired by bands such as the Pogues, Flogging Molly, and the Young Dubliners, their music has Irish roots, but with a healthy dose of rock, hence their slogan: “not your mother’s Irish band.” Armed with a large repertoire of songs this band can entertain at any venue. Band members play multiple instruments that include: fiddle, guitar, banjo, harmonica, bass, drums, bodhran and whistle and of course all while providing impressive vocals and harmonies. Don't take our word for it; see what others are saying about Gaelic Mishap!
