Reviews & Ratings
Streams of Whiskey is a Pogues, Shane MacGowan, and The Popes tribute band. If you want to hear “Fields of Athenry” and “I’ll Tell Me Ma,” then don’t bother coming to see this band. They play Pogues, Pogues, and only Pogues!
Streams of Whiskey was born out of desperation. Barnacle Bill was idiotically hired for an Irish gig at Egan and Sons on St. Paddy’s Day in 2007. Once Steve (drums), Stuart (guitar), and Yianni (bass) realized they didn’t actually know any Irish songs, the race began and the recruiting was on. Luckily, Steve’s girlfriend Karen (tin whistle) is psychotically obsessed with Shane MacGowan and The Pogues, and Steve (a distant third) offered to be the musical director while basically picking her favorite songs. A month later they managed to bump Steve from drums to vocals and Karen from musical director to tin whistle. A few months and a gig later, the group’s favorite bartender Paulie Walnuts entered the fray on drums. (Walnuts has since blown himself up whilst lighting a cig after too much Jameson!) Stepping into his shoes is Tim Alworth. Rounding out the group was Jeff “Polly” Young on fiddle.
Together, these seven musicians recreate the magic, mayhem, drunkenness, and fun that was and is The Pogues. All in all, the band is pretty much a load of misfits that somehow found each other under the umbrella of the Pogues. These musicians love what they do, and it shows!
