The 19th Street Band

The 19th Street Band are delighted to be on tour with their recently released album, Near Perfect! From touching on the heartstrings to lifting the spirits to remembering that life is just a beautiful mess, these songs capture the lively energy of The 19th Street Band. The band also pays tribute to Philip Donnelly with a recording of his #1 hit song, “Livin’ in These Troubled Times”. The album is currently receiving air play on a hundred different radio stations throughout the UK, including BBC Radio and is receiving rave reviews from all the leading music magazines throughout the UK and Ireland.
“An album of positive intensity, a sound that drives home the point that perfection is exactly what you present, it is your story, it is your tale told and created, nobody really has the right to question its own authority of pleasure that it offers. Near Perfect…impeccable and unspoiled.”
– Ian D. Hall, Liverpool Sound and Vision

“In truth, there isn’t a single track that doesn’t earn its place here.” – Dai Jeffries, Folking.com
Characterized by strong vocal harmonies, The 19th Street Band brings together a constellation of high-energy Americana, hillbilly, gypsy-rockin', good time music to engage every crowd. They ignite an audience with their passion and spirit. Caolaidhe, pronounced “Cally”, Davis (guitar/harmonica/vocalist) along with fiddle/mandolin/vocalist/partner-in-crime, Meghan Davis, create a joy-filled chemistry that no crowd can resist. Add to the mix the very talented Greg Hardin (bass/vocals) & Patty Dougherty (drums), and this band will have everyone enthralled.
The 19th Street Band has entertained crowds at festivals such as DelFest, Charm City Bluegrass Festival, National Cherry Blossom Festival, Kingman Island Bluegrass Festival, The Washington Folk Festival, Iowa Irish Festival, and Maryland Irish Festival. They have been featured as a regular artist at the Open House Festival in Bangor, Northern Ireland and the Dunmore East Bluegrass Festival in Co. Waterford. The band tours Ireland/UK every year and brings 40+ American fans along for the ride.
The band has packed the house at venues such as the 9:30 Club, The 8×10, The Hamilton, The Collective Encore, The Birchmere, State Theatre (DC), The Avalon Theatre, The Empire Music Hall and The Black Box in Belfast, and Hill Country BBQ in NYC & DC. They have had the honor of opening for country music stars such as Rodney Atkins and Chuck Mead, as well as for Grammy Award-winning Western Swing icons, Asleep at the Wheel. The 19th Street Band has shared the stage with Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen, Larry Keel, Kitchen Dwellers, Town Mountain, I Draw Slow, Dangermuffin, The Sweet Lillies, Spirit Family Reunion, and Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers and have performed in DC for presidential galas.
