St Patrick’s day 2018 was a big day for the band kicking off at 10:30am leading the St Patrick’s day parade through Brisbane city followed by numerous gigs around Brisbane CBD and Fortitude Valley finishing up at Finn McCool’s at 10:30pm – a full 12 hours later! The band’s four new side drummers marched with us in this parade and did a great job.
The band performed three concerts in Queen Street Mall during the afternoon before splitting to meet the demand for appearances at Irish pubs throughout Brisbane CBD and Fortitude Valley. There were three gigs in Mick O’Malley’s, one at Irish Murphy’s and three at Finn McCool’s.
The band all met up again in the Valley at Finn McCool’s for the last gig of the day. It was a really big day with plenty of water and a few pints of Guinness in between gigs.
The band also won the inaugural Jan Dooley St. Patrick’s Day Parade Best Float Award! Our band has been marching in every St Patrick’s Day parade in Brisbane since the first parade in 1990.
