December 11, 2011 at 4:49 am Leave a comment

The holiday season is a big deal at Mr. Dooley’s in downtown Boston! Last year’s entertainment schedule seemed like it would be pretty hard to beat, but they did it this year with the addition of a weekly Tuesday night series of Christmas parties lasting the entire month of December. Best part is, that there is plenty of live traditional Irish music to be heard and enjoyed at each and every one of these holiday shindigs which also include a St. Stephen’s Day celebration and, of course, a News Year’s eve bash, as well.  

Herein lie the event details:

December (Every Tuesday – 8:00 ’til closing) – “Irish Christmas Party Bash” – Featuring popular Irish standards and Christmas songs, as well as prizes and give-aways

Musicians:

Patsy Whelan – Highly energetic and fun-loving, this fiddler/guitarist isn’t happy until his audience is up and out of their seats dancing. Upon arriving in Boston, he rose rapidly to legendary status and besides remaining heavily active on the entertainment circuit is also included on the performance roster at numerous Irish music festivals. He has performed with some of celtic music’s biggest names including Paddy Reilly, Brendon Mulvihill, Brian Gaffney, The Waterboys, and others.

Michael “Maxi” Courtney – Originally from Ireland, he was raised within a family of musicians and had already started a professional performing career by the age of 14. As a fast learner he never had a formal music lesson in his life. He toured Europe before coming to Boston where he became quite popular amongst the local Irish music circuit. He is known for his great vocals and the ability to display an impressive degree of melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic complexity in his guitar playing.
