“They were jaw-dropping amazing! Not only are they strong vocally and as musicians, playing a variety of instruments, they are a fun group to experience watching and dancing to. They clearly have fun on stage, and off, interact with their audience well, and they even write great music and lyrics.” - Rave! Entertainment
The Town Pants started 20 years ago playing small pubs which lead to performing at music venues in over 500 cities in 15 countries and eventually to headlining Celtic, Roots and World Music festivals internationally. Three thousand shows later their own brand of Celtic roots-rock spans seven albums so far and is backed up with a legendary live show that has garnered them fans from Hawaii to Norway.
The Vancouver BC based band combines aspects of Irish traditional, folk, rock and roots Americana, fusing their signature dual lead vocals from brothers Duane and Dave Keogh. With the addition of virtuoso violinist Johanna So and backed by the solid rhythm section of Jeff Tripoli and Blake Probst the band creates a unique form of high energy "West Coast Celtic" that remains in the heart and head long after the music stops.
There are many Celtic folk-rock bands out there, but rarely does a band have this combination of passion, energy and spirit in performance coupled with some of the most imaginative songwriting you’ll find in the genre.
