SlapperCast Episode 23: Jamaican Lucky Charms

Mike and Paddy with O’Malley’s owner Michael Coakley.

Patrick, Chad, and Mike sing the praises of O’Malley’s Pub, an amazing music venue, pub and brewery in Weston, MO, where we’ll be playing this weekend (July 12 & 13, 2019), as well as in October for Weston Irish Fest. Then we spend some time musing at the many odd fake Irish accents we frequently encounter in our line of work, and also talk about how much fun we’ve been having with our Facebook live streams.

“This film is actually about how great Houston is, because of the artists…”

This week on SlapperCast, our first actual guest on the show, artist and filmmaker José Figueroa of Dance To Live Music, joins Patrick and Chad for an epic discussion about Houston’s vibrant music scene… and José’s upcoming documentary film about that very subject.

SlapperCast Episode 21: The Man From Omaha

Jeff Quinn

This week on SlapperCast, Patrick, Mike and Chad tell the story of our dear friend Jeff Quinn—the subject of our song “The Man From Omaha”—who passed away from ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) in February 2015. Jeff’s spirit was so strong that it’s still hard to believe he’s gone. In the short time we knew him, every second of his life was a celebration, and we were honored to be a part of it. He loved to laugh and was always smiling. His friendship also gave us a whole new extended family and second home in Omaha, Nebraska, something we know will always endure.
