The Celtic Kitchen Party


THE CELTIC KITCHEN PARTY

"...when a band titles itself something as definitive and iconic as The Celtic Kitchen Party, the feeling that you’re looking for is right there in the name, and it’s a testament to this crew that this is exactly what they deliver: a rousing good time that’s as infectious as it is endlessly fun..."

CONJURE UP THAT DOWN HOME FEELING

Boasting a diversity of talent The Celtic Kitchen Party plays a mix of their own celtic infused originals as well as traditional and contemporary East Coast, Irish and Scottish - with just the right dash of Pop and Classic Rock! The name conjures up that down homer feeling where all your relatives and neighbors drop by for a traditional kitchen party. This ensemble group brings a lively high energy performance to any venue for a night you and your guests are sure to remember.

All of the lads' energy and experience has culminated in a three album collection available in CD and DIGITAL through the band, and on all major platforms. These albums continue to be seated somewhere between original upbeat party tunes and beautiful storytelling to creative re-imaginings of traditional favourites.

Career highlights include; Iqaluit Humane Society fundraiser (NUNAVUT), 2017 Grey Cup Festival (Atlantic Schooners & Spirit of Edmonton), Brockville & Bath Tall Ships Festivals, Stirling Festival Theatre, The Perth Kilt Run, Fort Henry, Kingston RibFest and many of Ontario's Canadian Forces Bases. So? What are you waiting for? Set your event apart - be prepared to dance and sing along to some of the best party music ever made. Period.

Welcome to The Celtic Kitchen Party!

"On their third full-length release, Lobster Tail and Beer, Canada’s The Celtic Kitchen Party come exactly as advertised. A boisterous blend of traditional tunes and original compositions, the 11 songs highlight the band’s devotion to good times during otherwise dark days."

Besides that, you were unbelievable to work with, helping us select the music and alway getting back to our questions so quickly. We would recommend you to anyone, and truly appreciate your work, your music made our ceremony perfect."

"The Celtic Kitchen Party delivered a fabulous variety of music and added a positive and upbeat atmosphere to the evening. We hired the band for their celtic/folk/country style of music and playing, which was fitting for our East Coast theme. The music was lively and the band was engaged and very interactive with the crowd. I highly recommend this band for future events and enjoyed every minute of their playing. They also showed incredible dedication as they played back-to-back events that evening supporting military functions. Thank-you Celtic Kitchen Party for a night to remember."

"The groups performed their celtic flavoured repertoire that included a number of beloved singalong tunes including The Irish Rover, Farewell to Nova Scotia, Rattlin' Bog, and Dirty Old Town brought out the Irish in many listeners who sang along on many tunes. The trio played two sets and their laid back charm and their perfect blend made for a memorable day of high quality music at the beach."

We will certainly keep you in mind for future events! Thanks so much for helping to make the night so special!"
