This distinctive sound combined with the band's incredible stage presence is nothing short of awesome. Joining the likes of Don Henley (The Eagles), Phil Collins (Genesis) and Fred LeBlanc (Cowboy Mouth), Dallas native Tim Smith handles lead vocals and drums with amazing nonchalance, locking in with Jim Dawson's energetic bass playing, and the guitar stylings of Brek Lancaster. Drums, bass, and guitar - all the ingredients of a quintessential rock-and-roll band. Add to this dynamic rock-and-roll band, the 2004 Grand Master Fiddler Champion, Roberta Rast, and competition piper Matt Willis on the haunting Great Highland bagpipe, and you have all the right ingredients for a truly amazing Celtic Rock / World music / AAA / Rock-and-Roll extravaganza! The Killdares perform at over 150 shows annually, and they are as enthusiastically received at national Celtic festivals as they are at rock clubs. Since first appearing on the music scene a few short years ago, The Killdares have gone from local pub performers to national touring headliners, sharing stages with an incredibly diverse range of national and international artists. With the release of their 4th full-length recording, "Any Given Element," The Killdares are happily anticipating the opportunity to tour the U.S.
and Canada, with the very real possibility of taking their unique live show to Taiwan and other Asian nations, then on to Europe for the summer festival season in '06. Even as The Killdares continue to evolve, they remain committed to creating and performing the newest and most relevant music in the world today. Presenting a perfect blend of rock, pop, and Celtic, The Killdares have established themselves as a great and unique band - stretching the boundaries of rock n' roll alternatives, while bridging the gap between the traditional and the cutting edge. -From The Killdares' MySpace page.
