How Electric Shock Celebrates St. Patrick’s Day
Don't miss the 3rd Annual Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds St. Patrick's Day bash this weekend!
Electric Shock the AC/DC show is going to rock your St. Patrick's Day! I talked to the band about how they celebrate the holiday!
Please introduce the members of your band!
Johnny Degiorgio - Lead Guitar/Angus Young Eric Richeal - Rhythm Guitar/Malcolm Young Darren Followwill - Bass Guitar/Cliff Williams John Kiss - Vocals/Bon Scott/Brian Johnson Tom Ramirez - Drums/Phil Rudd Derek Grant - Bagpipes
How long has the band been playing?
Since 2014, Electric Shock formed after Johnny "Angus" Degiorgio moved here from Sydney, Australia. Since the early 1990's he has been perfecting the role of Angus Young in the Australian AC/DC tribute "Dirty Deeds".
Got any St. Patrick's Day Traditions?
Playing concerts and keeping rock n' roll alive by spreading the music of AC/DC!
Any St. Paddy's Day memories?
2 years ago we performed at the last Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds St. Patrick's Bash and it was the biggest party in the Midwest!
Best Irish Drinking song?
AC/DC's "Have a Drink on Me" while not Irish, it is fitting!
What are you looking forward to most about this weekends show?
Seeing our hometown fans, friends and family! We usually are on the road and after last year with covid-19 it will be nice to play an all ages free show at 3:30pm and party with the fans after! For Those About to Shamrock...We Salute You!
