Dan O’Connell’s 10th Anniversary memorial concert was an amazing night – a room full of people, a lineup of some of the best Celtic bands ever assembled in Melbourne and a great celebration. We also raised $4,500 for the Very Special Kids Charity which was also fantastic!
Paddy Fitz and Friends, Tara, Shanakee, Seldom Sober, Allan and Ross O’Connell, Cooney’s Brew and Highland Paddy all performed on the night with a myriad of special guests popping onto the stage over the course of the evening.
The night was recorded and filmed and we’re (as in me, Dave Walker) currently cobbling it all together and working on producing a live album and DVD of the night. More details on that to come in the next few weeks.
The next show for Shanakee is this Sunday at The Bay Hotel in Mornington, followed by our regular at the Celtic Club on November 4th. Look forward to seeing you there!
