Dropkick Murphys @ Red Hat Amphitheatre

Dropkick Murphys played the Red Hat Amphitheater last night. I was not the only one to wear a kilt and sporran for the show. A family in the pit that had on their Red Sox attire were invited back stage. Being lifted over the security barrier before the show. I knew I should have worn my Gronk jersey with my kilt.

Ken Casey, lead vocals

Al Barr, lead vocals

The Celtic punk rock band was formed in 1996 in Quincy, Massachusetts, and has released nine disks to date. Singer/songwriter, Ken Cassey, is the only original member with the band today.

Dropkick Murphys are known for their live shows. The music is fun and energetic. Ken and Al Barr (co-lead vocals) get you hopping and dancing in the aisles. Climbing up to the crowd to sing with the fans.

Lee Forshner – bagpipes

Have to say there seemed to be a lot of Massachusetts transplants in the crowd when asked to raise their hands. Then the band played The State of Massachusetts.

Matt Kelly – drums

All in all this was a great, lively show. A must see band, if you enjoy rock, punk or hard Celtic music.
