Alternately changing its personnel and its place, the band's hallmarks have been strong melodies and the right harmonies all mixed up into energetic rock music. Cousins Pat Finnerty [vocals/bass] and Mike Quinn [vocals/guitar] started writing songs together as teenagers in Scranton, Pennsylvania. During college, the two established themselves in Philadelphia. Now joined by John Parise [lead guitar] and Brian Craig [drums], okay paddy has been touted by Doug Wallen [Philadelphia Weekly] as being among Philadelphia's up-and-coming "cream of the crop." The group has shared the stage with acts such as The Spinto Band, The Teeth, We Are Scientists and Lewis & Clarke.
Working with the Scranton-based label Prison Jazz Records, okay paddy has released one EP and one LP. Both of these self-produced recordings have been well recieved, meriting comparisons to Pavement, The Shins and Guided by Voices.
