What should we expect from your Irish shows?

Well, one of the times we played there was at Witness and we brought the sun out. If it is raining and cloudy when we get there, we’ll probably do it again. If not, we’ll have  fun trying. Thank you for your support!! Tell all you know NOT to miss this show!!
