Got any St. Patrick's Day Traditions?
St. Pats traditions....hmmm. Beer ? Lol
Any St. Paddy's Day memories?
Last year this same show was cancelled at 3:00 that day, we had a show at HarleyCorins set up, booked and promoted by 5:00 that same day. Hope to not repeat that. Lol. This will be our 3rd time at this event, always fun. Shawn from the fair takes really good care of us.
Best Irish Drinking song?
Not Enough Whiskey by Hong Kong Sleepover. (Gotta support local, great song, great guys)
What are you looking forward to most about this weekends show?
This show will rock, 2 hours on a big stage with a killer pa. This is ProjectX’s element; storm through a powerhouse set of driving rock & old school metal! We’re stoked to totally give it our all and leave it all on the stage! If you’re doing less, why bother?
