$450 - $1200 per event
Paddygrass plays authentic, Irish and Bluegrass. If you like upbeat Irish music or toe tapping Bluegrass classics then we are the band for you. Our lead singer Derek was born and raised in Ireland and toured with Riverdance for 6 years. We play weddings, festivals, corporate events and bar gigs, all year round so we are very good at getting the crowd going or providing a nice tasteful background - Whatever you need, we look forward to working with you.

Depending on your budget we can be hired as a duo, trio, quartet, or a quintet. Any of these options can include an Irish Dancer and we all play multiple instruments including banjo, guitar, Bass, fiddle, hand percussion, tin whistle, accordion and 4 part vocal harmony. We can learn any song and arrange it to your liking.

Derek is also available as a one man band. He loops hand drums and backing vocals live, then layers banjo and harmonica to create the sound of a band on the spur of the moment. Alternately he can put on an intimate show just with his voice and a banjo.

We can play acoustic or bring our own sound and lighting system depending on your venue and event.

We booked Derek and Paddygrass for our wedding ceremony and reception and could not be more pleased with their performance. They learned specific song requests (and executed them flawlessly) and made sure every detail was accounted for. Our guests absolutely loved them, as did the two of us. Would not hesitate to recommend or book again.

The group made the day. Also at the community concert paddygrass music along with their dancing skills were the talk. The only complaint came from those who regrettably missed the show. I want them back fit two days next year. Fabulous job Derick and the group. See you next year the same weekend.
