BarRoom Heroes / Bio

We are the BarRoom Heroes. Named after Dropkick Murphys song BarRoom Hero and est. Dec 2007. Brothers Jake (16 guitar/mandolin/vocals) & Nick Bell (15 bass/bagpipes/vocals) are the founding members. A few lineup changes over the years with Davey Dreyer (18 drummer) joining March 2012. He has added lots of energy earning him the nickname "Animal". June 2009 we had a show shut down by the cops (we where 10 & 11). Ken Casey & DKM caught wind and stepped up doing several interviews in support. The Press nicknamed us "Band of PUNK brothers". From there we started doing benefits. Punks For A Princess fundraiser show Sept 2010 (ongoing punksforaprincess.com) was our break to meeting some great Booking Agents and now dear friends (Beantown Booking & Brass N Ammo) and other bands and now dear friends! (Lenny Lashleys Gang of One, Beantown Boozehounds, The Scrapes, The F.U.'s, Bob Cenci of Jerrys Kids, Taxi Driver and many many more). We've played some great venues Harpers Ferry, Landsdowne Pub, Church of Boston, Beachcomber, Midway Cafe, Firehouse 13 and many more. Nov 2010 we opened for Lenny Lashley's Gang of One (formerly of Darkbuster and Lenny and the Piss Poor Boys) CD release party at McGreevys, March 2011 for Dropkick Murphys at Tsongas Arena, Dec 2011 for Street Dogs at The Paradise. March 2012 we were back at Tsongas Arena for The Claddagh Funds Block Party and met Danny O' (boxer) for the first time. Also that week opened for The Mahones in RI. March 2013 Ken Casey invited us out on tour with DKM to Electric Factory, Philly; 9:30 Club, D.C. and Terminal 5, NYC. April 28th we were invited to do Dropkick Murphys benefit at the House of Blues, Boston for the victims of the Boston Marathon. This was an incredible honor we shared the stage with State Radio, The Old Brigade, The Parkington Sisters and Big D and the Kids Table and of coarse DKM. To be part of something so grand is unexplainable and to be part of the healing and raising $ for the victims felt great. That show was about raising $ and to start the Boston process of healing. 2013 Summer of a dream... 8 city tour, 3500 miles with DKM & Swingin Utters. Started at Mountain Park, Holyoke, MA; The National, VA; HOB, SC; Mann Center, Skyline Stage, PA; Ives Ctr Park, CT; Stony Pony - Summer Stage, NJ; Town Ballroom, NY & Club Fever, South Bend IN. Had a blast with everyone! Tossers at the Middle East, Cambridge March 2014. July 10th Warped Tour on the Kevin Says Hard Rock Stage! Micky Wards Annual Bike Run having us back for our 3rd their 6th year in Sept. We are having a blast meeting great people and giving back! BOSTON PROUD... BOSTON STRONG!
