What began as an excuse for a handful of South Side musicians to get together and play some fun Irish music that defined their musical upbringing, has quickly turned into a nine person ‘tour de force’ that is taking the Midwestern music scene by storm! Since the band’s inception in 2009 Red Rebel County has sold out countless shows, been invited to play in front of thousands for various high profile Chicago Police/Fire Department benefits, and packed venues around the Midwest. Their legion of rabid fans continues to grow rapidly with every show.

Covering the pioneers of the bar-room sound, Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly, Red Rebel County plays everyone’s favorite party tunes, along with a handful of traditional Irish bar-room tunes and original music that is guaranteed to have the crowd singing and dancing along with the band. BUT PARTYGOERS BEWARE – this show isn’t for the faint of heart! Red Rebel County doesn’t put on just any old, ordinary show like most other cover bands. When Red Rebel County rolls through a town the venue is quickly transformed into a huge party with the band playing host as your friendly “MC.” So get ready for loads of drinking, toasting, and fans jumping up on stage to sing and dance along with the band at the next show!

Having received national attention and critical acclaim in their respective original Chicago bands, this group is well versed in bringing both energy and musicianship to their live shows. From the bag pipers, to the banjo and the fiddle that will have you dancing along, Red Rebel County puts on a MUST SEE show for music lovers everywhere! Be sure to check them out when the party hits your town!

So get ready to raise your glass in a toast, sing and dance along to a song (or ten,) and you’ll have a blast with Red Rebel County…guaranteed!
