Irish Cover Band Playing The Songs People Want To Hear 

Celtic Connection Logo 

     Celtic Connection is comprised of guitarist  Joe Mullin, lead vocalist and percussionist Pat  Touey, mandolin player Glenn McCollum, and  keyboard player Tom Neuhauser.   Originally  formed more than 15 years ago, the band's  personnel has always delivered.  This  includes a range of memorable performances  at festivals, private parties,  and a range of venues stretching from Philadelphia to New York, and from The American Midwest to the House Of Blues in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Celtic Connection most recently enjoyed the opportunity to provide opening support for national recording artists, Derek Warfield & The Young Wolftones, two years in a row, during Mandalay Bay's Saint Patrick's Day Festival in Las Vegas.  

     These players, with their diverse musical backgrounds and love for traditional Irish music, make for a truly unique band.  Joe's love of Progressive and Classic Rock, Pat's amazing vocal abilities, Glenn's admiration for American Folk and Blues music, and Tom's ability to fit in with anything thrown his way, creates an ensemble which really needs to be seen in order to be fully appreciated.  Whether they are playing at a festival with thousands of people, or an engagement party at a private venue, audiences can always expect a full-out performance from Celtic Connection.  Their repertoire is packed with material from a wide variety of genres including a plethora of great Irish songs.  Armed with the ability to quickly interact with the crowd, this is a great bunch of guys playing the tunes that people want to hear, the way that they want to hear them, with several enjoyable surprises.
