Since 2011 – from duo to the Paddyhats

Raw rock music combined with passion and traditional folk music

When in 2011 the duo Sean and Dwight O’Reilly searched for more musicians to get rock and punk influences into their Irish music „The O’Reillys and the Paddyhats“ was born. Step by step they developed a unique sound that they presented all over Europe. From Russia to the Island of Santa Maria in Portugal. From Basque Country, over England to the hottest venues in Prague. The played 7 times on the huge Wacken Open Air and had sold out tours in Germany. Their last album „Dogs on the Leash“ again in the charts on #33 shows their growing fanbase. The thirst for raw rock music in combination with old and passionate folk music still isn’t quenched. Their self produced music videos have over 51 millions views on YouTube and the band is boiling hot to enter the stages, write new songs and get their music into the world.
