Jimmy McCarthy

BandAmericanaAdult Contemporary

Totally live music! Jigs , reels and songs that entertain. We are easy to work with and professional. Our music is Americana with a hint of Celtic roots. We do play genuine Irish music when requested. We promote "real live music" no machines or lap tops!


A strong influence of John Prine and Van Morrison can be heard in the songs we play. Our original songs are quick to the point so people tend to enjoy them more then long "deep" tunes.
Stories and banter make up a good part of the entertainment. We tend to play long sets, so let us know if you want shorter sets. McCarthy and Buescher have been together ever since they met in a recording session three years ago. We have played in Super Markets and Stadiums, and we have fun where ever we play!
