About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Voted Celtic band of the year by Wisconsin Area Music Industry for 2019 and 2015, Reilly have garnered a reputation for being an interactive, get-off-your-chair act. The band's travel circuit around the Midwest continues to grow along with their reputation for being a highly respected and professional level group. National programs such as Good Morning Ireland, Blarney on the Air, and Paddyrock internet radio have featured Reilly and Celtic Radio Music Network rates them as five out of five stars. Their ability to adapt Celtic music to an American rock audience, and include unexpected rock favorites into their set, makes them the perfect eclectic choice in today's watered down and predictable Celtic scene. Reilly's set list includes traditional, contemporary, and original Celtic/Irish (Pogues, Saw Doctors, Waterboys, Great Big Sea, Gaelic Storm, Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, Dubliners, etc…). They also do non-Celtic covers with their own twist to focus on folk rock and various country-based/Americana songs. This can include Tom Petty, Queen, Old Crow Medicine Show, Jim Croce, Johnny Cash, Steve Earle, Neil Young, CCR, Otis Redding, Rolling Stones, and much more. Reilly can tailor a set list for you to do all the types of things you like best. Being a strong part of the Irish and non-Irish musical community throughout the Midwest, Reilly have appeared regularly at Milwaukee's Irish Fest, The Irish Cultural and Heritage Center in Milwaukee, Manhattan, IL Irish Fest, Will County, IL Celtic Fest, Bastille Days in Milwaukee, City of Indianapolis events, Harley-Davidson festivals, River Rhythms in Milwaukee, countless St. Patrick's parades and activities, Bradley Center events, and at far too many Irish pubs and non-Irish locales around the Midwest to mention. They've shared the stage with Gaelic Storm, Flogging Molly, Enter the Haggis, The Prodigals, Red Hot Chilli Pipers, Seven Nations, The Bridies, Luka Bloom and more. Members of Reilly are also involved with community and social outfits such as the Wisconsin Area Music Industry and the Shamrock Club of Wisconsin—Milwaukee Chapter.

Reilly was an absolute blast. They are great musicians and well versed in a wide variety of music. Just an all around fun band with a strong stage presence and we hope to have them back again soon!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on September 13, 2014From Waupaca, WI

Reilly is an amaZing, Uber talented band. They were super easy to work with. Extremely flexible and sounded fabulous. Our guests all raved about the music and many stayed much longer just to listen to them. They also prepared a song of our choosing and played it better then Brad Paisley. If u are looking for an amazing unique band these are your guys.
