Von Shakes, “One of Ireland’s greatest live acts in years,” (Today FM) are the latest Irish Import to embody the sound of youth, angst, and chaos as they take over American soil. Adding a punk edge to their indie rock & roll foundation, the foursome calls to mind The Postelles, The Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, The Strokes, The Replacements and The Wombats.  Known throughout Ireland, England, Germany, Russia and now the US for providing an onslaught of energy with every melodic vocal, guitar riff and drum beat, Paddy Brazel (vocals/guitar), Hugh O’Reilly (guitar/backing vocals), Cillian McSweeney (bass/backing vocals), and Ryan Normandin (drums) bring their vivacious rock swagger to every gig they do. The quartet is also putting the finishing touches on a new album, Bohemia, to be released in November of 2013.
