The Indulgers have received many awards and nominations from the Irish Music Association and Just Plain Folks to Ethnic CD of the Year and Celtic Song of the Year. On three occasions, they also received Westword's "World Music Award". A tour of Ireland in 2007 led to the opportunity of playing with legendary Irish band Horslips members; both in the US and in Ireland. It also led to the filming of a documentary in Denver in 2010 for Irish TV (TG4). The Indulgers have spent the bulk of 2011 recording their seventh album in Wheat Ridge, Colorado - as well as a Horslips tribute album track for an upcoming international compilation. The Indulgers write original songs with an Irish backbone. Mike, Renee, Damien, Cheech and Aaron are often joined by Mike's son Ryan, or his long-time pal Neale Heywood of Fleetwood Mac on guitar with Songs of Ireland, Immigration, Drink, Life, Death and Love. New songs and new adventures with an pure Irish spirit, you can't blink, it's The Indulgers.
The Indulgers came about a few years after Damien McCarron had arrived in Colorado from Dublin, Ireland. While recording a solo project at Alley Studios in Wheat Ridge, Damien met Mike Nile for the first time. A songwriting partnership led to the formation of The Indulgers and the first gigs in early 1998.

Many regulat trips to festivals nationwide polished the band known for high energy shows and top class original recordings highlighting the many aspects of the "Indulgers celtic sound".
A second CD "Tan & Black" followed in 2001 and the band began playing at Conor O'Neill's in Boulder as it's home club, a tradition that stays as strong as ever in 2011. A 'Covers" CD was released in 2002. "Celtic Tiger" followed by new original material "High Road To Heaven" in 2004 and "Chase The Ghost" in 2006.
