Celtic Punk & Grass-A-Billy Band
The Punkabillys started out as two guys playing with themselves (instruments, in case anyone should be confused). Originally known as Burning Eyebrow, they got their start playing acoustic style at private parties and bonfires. The band expanded to four members in July of 2007, bringing an electric and harder feel. Then, in December 2007, they changed their name to The Punkabillys. Their new style of original music reflected songs about local life and growing up in Pennsylvania or Pennsyltucky, as the case may be.
In late 2009, they added a fifth member to play banjo and complete their Rockabilly sound. Early in 2010, they expanded their punk style by adding bagpipes and a tin whistle to create a Celtic punk sound that is like no other. In 2013, The Punkabillys transformed from electric distortion to an acoustic Grass-A-Billy style of music by bringing back the banjo and adding an acoustic guitar. This brought a unique mix of Bluegrass and Celtic Irish Folk-Grass. Their current line-up of instruments includes: 2 acoustic guitars, bass, banjo, and mandolin. They enjoy writing and playing songs about pirates, moonshine, jail, and bad decisions!
