The O’Reillys and The Paddyhats are probably the most international of the bands from the latest German Celtic punk wave.

The O’Reillys and the Paddyhats are a unique formation that finally gives the Irish Folk Punk scene something new and refreshing to talk about. The seven multi-instrumentalists don’t care whether
they play their shows at a big venue in the heart of Moscow, a small underground establishment in Madrid or simply by the water in the close by city of Bremen. Once they set foot on stage the
atmosphere immediately bursts with energy and that feeling you get when you’re partying with all your friends rushes through your body. A solid backline, driving folk and a shared passion for
Irish music are the ingredients that have led to multiple sore throats, roaring parties and screams for an encore!
A show by the seven musicians is one that you’re bound to remember. All of their songs are performed with unrestrainable passion and raw authenticity, taking the audience on an Irish
journey full of tales, stories and drinking. Heck, you’ll feel like you’re sitting in an old Celtic pub once this band begins playing!
The O’Reillys and the Paddyhats will bring their very own interpretation of Irish Folk Punk into your head, your legs and your soul!
After 5 years and app. 100 concerts I enjoy being on stage with this band every day a little more. Even if it's not easy to have those weekly discussions while rehearsing it's worth every fight. We've been to Moscow and Madrid, to many big cities in europe, we've performed in old simming pools and going to perform on a huge festival called Wacken open Air. Every day is a challenge but it's exactly what I want
