Odessa Celtic Concert Official Commercial

Ohio Scottish Festival Recap

The Rogues received a great reception at the Ohio Scottish Festival in Wellington, Ohio on June 28th. It's been 9 or 10 years since the band last performed there, so it was great seeing familiar faces again.

The Rogues performed 3 official shows, and then again at the after party.  The weather was beautiful, the sound man, Paul, was excellent and we had am awesome time performing.  The pipers were Jimmy MItchell and Jesse Bills, with drummers Mark Sullivan and Randy Wothke.

Thanks to Theresa Mihalic Mosher for bringing the band back, and Chrissy Mihalic for the dancing contributions.   Special thanks to Pam and Gene Hoskins, who drove from West Virginia and assisted with the sales table, as well as Janice Sullivan for helping with the sales.  The after party was the most fun performance of the day, and the best part is that it's open to anyone.  And the available Twisted Kilt ale didn't hurt either.

The Games also has a week-long Scottish arts camp that is based in nearby Oberlin, the home of Oberlin College.  What a beautiful campus that is, and also boasts the Carnegie Library, donated by Andrew Carnegie in 1908.  It would definitely be worth the trip for anyone within driving distance to attend the Ohio Scottish Games next year.

Look for The Rogues next at the Odessa Celtic Concert in Odessa, TX on July 19th, and the next 4 weeks after that the band will be in Washington state for the Pacific Northwest Scottish Festival and the Washington Midsummer Renaissance Faire

Ohio Scottish Games June 28

McGonigel's Mucky Duck Recap

The Rogues once again rocked McGonigel's Mucky Duck in Houston on May 15.  What a great night!  It's been years since the band has played an evening show at The  Duck.  Thanks to everyone who came out to support the band and have a good time.  The performers were Jimmy, Doug Frobese, Bryan and Randy, and we were joined on a few numbers by violinist Kristen Jensen from Houston, who will be joining the roster beginning in July when we head to Washington state.  She is classically-trained and proficient in Celtic fiddle and gypsy style music which she performs with Gypsy Dance Theater in Houston, as well as being a violin instructor.  We were also joined briefly on stage by Paul Rendon, one of the original drummers from 1994 when we were still called the Scottish Rogues, and a former drumming student of Randy's, Heath Behmer, who happened to be at the show and was asked to join in on djembe for a number or two.
 
This was also our goodbye party to good friends, Paul and Ros Shepherd, who are moving to Spain soon.  Ros and Paul have been HUGE supporters of Celtic and Scottish music in Houston for years, and their home is affectionately called "the house for wayward musicians."  Every year they throw a  hell of a Hogmanay party for new year's eve that ends with a parade around the neighborhood at midnight.  Good stuff and good memories!  The band hopes to be able to visit them in Spain as part of a tour in the near future and lead the parade there as well.  

We'd like to thank Missy Best for holding down the sales table for us, and of course McGonigel's Mucky Duck for having us back.  A great time was had by all and we look forward to doing it again in the near future.

The Rogues will be rockin' McGonigel's Mucky Duck in Houston at 9:30 pm on Thursday night May 15. It's been a few years since the band has been at the Duck for an evening concert and it feels great to be coming home to our favorite pub.

The last time the Rogues performed at The Duck was for the band's fundraiser for the Oklahoma tornado victims last June. You'll see familiar faces and we'll also be joined by new piper Jesse Bills from Oklahoma and new fiddle player Kristen Jensen from Houston. This is going to be a show you won't want to miss. Bring your dancing shoes and your friends down to The Duck for great music, food and drinks and help support live music in Houston.  Ticket prices are only $20 in advance or $22 at the door.

See you there!
