The Prodigals are one of the most successful bands to emerge from the East-Coast Irish scene. The band members grew up largely in Ireland; their original songs blend a funky and anarchic energy that is pure New York with a passion for the traditional music of Ireland. With Big Apple cockiness fused with traditional tunes wends its way back home, as New York's answer to The Pogues. Gregory Grene's accordion calls many of the shots, fueled by the kind of percussive force that NASA would pay dearly for....Swivel the amp right up to eleven and submit to the manic rhythms.
The band has headlined major venues and festivals throughout the United States, Los Angeles and Las Vegas to Chicago, Boston and Maine, as well as abroad in Canada, Germany and Ireland.
