The seven members of Dropkick Murphys regularly come and go from the stage. During one song only four of the band remained with the others taking rest breaks. The band's instruments consists of Accordian, Pipes, Tin Whistle, Banjo, Mandolin as well as the rock stable of guitars, bass and drums. The lead vocalist has a gravelly voice which you'd associate with old style traditional Irish singing. Bassist Ken Casey was on vocals duty for most of the tracks and was much more listenable. The set of well over an hour and a half included a four song acoustic set on stools which gave the moshing crowd a breather. It was the interaction between the band and the crowd that provided most of the entertainment. For the encore the band brought onstage a few dozen ladies for a great version of 'Kiss Me, I'm Shitfaced'. The onstage invasion lasted until the end of the gig with the crowd in an appreciative mode for this hard working band.

Dropkick Murphys gained a new fan tonight. Their versions of 'Irish Rover', 'Fields of Athenry' and 'TNT' were great fun and as mentioned earlier this was a gig of high entertainment value!
