"Al Pulaski"

The Blarney Rebel band has provided the entertainment for the Grand Marshal's reception and I could not think of a better way to do that, with the band's rousing renditions of the many Irish favorites. They have always been and always will be a crowd favorite when and wherever they play!"

"James Simpson"

From participant's comments, The Blarney Rebel Band is the hands down fan favorite at the Boilermaker 8k Walk. Their rousing medley of Irish favorites has our walkers high-stepping and helps keep our participants coming back year after year.

"Frank Kealy"

Blarney Rebel's Traditional and Irish Republican repertoire has been a great calling card for their following besides the continuation of the Irish-American musical genre in the area. Their music is superb, their talent better than that and their generosity overwhelming.
