Potcheen is the ultimate party band. Potcheen is the Irish word for moonshine, the raw whiskey that comes from an illicit still, and this music is as raw and real as it gets. The band plays pub standards, favored by every Irish band to hoist a pint, but they play them with energy, enthusiasm, and expertise.

Every one of these people is an accomplished musician. Together they hold crowds in the palm of their collective hand with some of the finest Celtic rock you're ever likely to encounter.

Formed in 2003 they have released 6 albums to date having played over 3000 shows in 40 states from New York to Alaska with international tours planned in 2015.

~ Customer Quotes ~

"After seeing Potcheen at the Colorado Irish Festival, we just had to have them play at our Scottish/Irish Wedding.. They got everyone clapping, singing and even my stodgy Uncle who never smiles was dancing on the table with a drink in his hand.. SLAINTE' Potcheen you were the perfect band for our Wedding Day"

" These guys were troopers. During the 2010 Running of the Green, It started snowing, by the time they were to start it was a Blizzard in downtown Denver, but they kept playing and everyone was dancing in a snowstorm til it suddenly stopped and the sun peeked through.. thank you Potcheen"

"We flew Potcheen out to Girdwood Alaska, two years in a row to perform for our St.Pattys Day Bash.. they got the entire club jumping and thumping, causing the downstairs ceiling tiles to come down..but it was worth it...Such Energy was amazing!"

"A major thunderstorm erupted on the festival grounds in Taos, NM. Paula Cole rushed off the West stage, Meanwhile Potcheen was on the East Stage and said.. Hell, no.. They started a drum jam and got 8000 people back out on the field dancing in the rain til the rain abated then rocked the crowd into the night, even extending their set until Los Lobos were ready."

"We held a Fat Tuesday Party and everyone was like..I snt this an Irish Band??? Potcheen busted out one cajun and zydeco song after another getting the folks in the New orleans Spirit..screaming AIIIIII-EEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!"

"We held a Biker Rally in NM. and watched this band shift gears between Celtic-Rock-Cajun-Punk-Country and Bluegrass even belting out the best "Devil went down to Georgia" Ive ever heard...and the Drummer was the lead Singer"

"We hold an event each year in Carbondale Colorado that has over 12000 spectators a day over a weekend. Potcheen was the 2nd to last band and rocked the crowd. then the Headliner was over an hour late so..we asked them to keep going. 7 encores later the crowd was a sea of happy leprechauns!!"

Potcheen played at our wedding, traveling all the way to the California to be there. Two members of the band played acoustic during our ceremony - a line up of jigs and reels, along with the Pachelbel Canon. During the reception they alternated playing soft mood music. After cake they played a lively line-up that got everyone dancing. Christian, the leader, made a huge effort to be there for us. Despite having logistical problems that lesser bands might have used as an excuse to cancel on us, Potcheen worked through them and made it work. Overall, the music was great - classy and fun - and the guests loved it. Couldn’t have had a better musical act for our wedding!

I had Potcheen do the music for my wedding. Amazing group and Christan (the cap'n) was very professional and accommodating, it was exactly the wild Irish wedding I was hoping for. The ceremony music was beautiful and the reception was just what I had hoped for. The only negative I can think of was that our father/daughter dance was too quiet to hear, but that may have been equipment issues since the rest of the songs were perfect. I would defiantly recommend this band to anyone looking for great Irish music that will get your guests dancing.
