Paul's B-Day bash this Thursday at 7 pm Sportsmen's Tavern


“MCCARTHYIZM Who?: Joe McCarthy (Vocals, Guitar) Paul Ceppaglia (Guitar), Dave Mucha (Bass), Helen Butler (fiddle, cello), Joe S u p l i c k i ( D r u m s ) , N a t e Schneekloth (Keys), Dee Adams (Vocals), Jim Bohm (trumpet), Jim Runfola (saxophone) and David Moore (UilleanPipes, Accordian, Tin Whistle). WHAT?: Buffalo’s long-tenured kings of singer/ songwriter-meets-Celtic rock. WHAT’S NEW?: The band has released it’s finest collection of songs to date, “Victors & Vices.” (See www.mccarthyizm.com) WHY?: The new album - smartly produced by Ceppaglia with the help of engineers Marc Hunt at Chameleon Studios and Paul Weisenburger at the Pickle Patch - perfectly captures the roughshod beauty of a McCarthyizm concert. The addition of the Bohm/Runfola horn section, Jackdaw’s Moore and Adams’ sonorous harmony vocals add suple flesh to the skeleton of McCarthy’s lyrics. Rowdy, smart and memorable. -Jeff Miers”
