Upcoming gigs

McLaughlin’s Alley is back in action!

If you don’t know us, we are a four-piece band that performs in venues and at events all over southeastern Michigan. We also have an acoustic trio version. When you come out and hear us, you’ll hear crazy good pop rock music (plus Irish favorites). No kidding. The vocals are backed by 12-string guitar, bass, ukelele, drums and flute.

After a long, pandemically challenged downtime, we are happy to announce that we have upcoming gigs!

Catch us next at:

United Irish Societies Detroit St Patrick’s Parade Fundraiser. We are one of a number of bands participating in this event, which is in support of the 2022 St. Patrick‚Äôs Parade in Detroit. The performances will be streamed. Details on how to watch/contribute coming soon.
