- SOLD OUT!! Start your St. Patty’s Day early at The Dove with a very special show from The Young Dubliners! This will be a standing room only party that you won’t want to miss! $50 VIP tickets are available that include reserved seating and a pass to hang out with the band after the show! The hard-rocking Irish band, the Young Dubliners owe everything to their fans. “They keep us honest, expecting good music both on the road and on the albums,” mentions frontman Keith Roberts. Building a fervent fan base comparable to that of jam band rockers like Phish and Dave Matthews Band, The Young Dubliners have become notorious for the whirling “jig pits” that erupt at their live shows. In fact, the group’s origins can be traced back to Los Angeles’ vibrant pub scene in which Dublin natives Keith Roberts (vocals, guitar) and Paul O’Toole first met. The Young Dubliners grew into a pugnacious music machine resulting in their debut, the Rocky Road EP (1994). It exhibited a hefty rock sound that made them a club favorite. Breathe followed a year later with the addition of Chas Waltz (violin, keys, harmonica, etc). By 2000, the band had morphed into a septet without O’Toole and released the critically acclaimed Red. The presence of the band sky-rocketed: Gabriel Byrne requested the band to write the theme song for his television show Madigan Men and they spent much of 2001 touring Europe with Jethro Tull, and the US as headliners and as openers for acts such as John Hiatt and Robert Cray. The Young Dubliners also revved up the crowd at the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City. From Irish-flavored anthemic rock to rowdy pub tunes, lead singer Keith Roberts voice is stronger than ever and the songwriting, performance, and production show a new maturity and artistic ambition. Roberts notes, “Since Absolutely, we’ve become a much tighter band. It’s the first time we’ve had the same members for two albums in a row, plus we’ve had the benefit of relentless touring. I think those two factors have really come together to make us sound and write better.”
