Upcoming gigs

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