Upcoming gigs

Our sound: Americana folk-rock with an indie edge plus pop covers and Irish favorites

McLaughin’s Alley is a vocally-focused ensemble that performs in venues and at events all over southeastern Michigan (click here for details). The vocals are backed by 12-string guitar, bass, drums and flute. McLaughlin’s Alley consists of Tina Paraventi (vocals, guitar), Maureen Paraventi (vocals, flute), Norm Andresen (vocals, bass, guitar) and Stuart Tucker (drums). We are sometimes joined by Connor Fischetti (violin). We also have an acoustic trio version. McLaughlin is the maiden name of Tina and Maureen’s mother, Mary.
