Starting out as the house band for the Irish pub Molly Malone’s in Los Angeles and building a loyal following through endless touring, Flogging Molly has become a staple in the punk scene over the past 20 years. The band released its debut showcase, “Swagger,” in 2000. Then continued to release successful studio albums including “Drunken Lullibies,” Within a Mile of Home,” “Float,” followed by “Speed of Darkness” and “Life is Good.”
The seven-piece band is comprised of Dave King (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, bodhran), Bridget Regan (violin, tin whistle, vocals), Dennis Casey (guitar, vocals), Matt Hensley (accordion, concertina, vocals), Nathen Maxwell (bass guitar, vocals), Spencer Swain (mandolin, banjo, guitar, vocals), and Mike Alonso (drums, percussion).
With numerous late-night television appearances under their belt, its sell-out Salty Dog Cruise through the Caribbean, and yearly St. Patrick’s Day Festival in Los Angeles, has solidified Flogging Molly as an Irish-American institution. The band is currently working on the Rise Records follow-up to its 2017 LP, “Life Is Good.”
Recently, the band reissued “Swagger” with exclusive tracks, an Irish traditional set, a 60-minute video feature and exclusive merch in a collectable box set.
Tickets for Flogging Molly start at $39. For more information, contact the Fantasy Springs Box Office via phone (800) 827-2946 and online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com
