Upcoming gigs

Hi, there! McLaughlin’s Alley is a five-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) with 3-part harmonies. No kidding. The vocals are backed by 12-string guitar, bass, ukelele, drums and flute.

This summer’s highlights:

The Motor City Irish Fest gets better every year, and we were proud to be part of it. Here’s a pic of Rebekah, myself and Tina relaxing with some friends after the gig.

We played for the first time at Detroit’s legendary Cadieux Cafe, sharing the bill with Poor Player and Brian McCosky from Petoskey.

We were happy to be in such great musical company there and at Norm’s Front Porch Party. This was a unique event, with musicians set up on the front porch playing to people sitting in chairs on the lawn. We loved it – and we enjoyed hearing the other bands, each of whom brought their own distinctive sound to the day.

We also played at the Tap Room in Ypsilanti, with lots of dancing and a special guest appearance by Connor Fischetti, singing and accompanying himself on guitar. He was awesome! Pics below.
