About the bands
The Kilmaine Saints
Kilmaine Saints is a band formed on good whiskey and bad intentions.
They are equal parts Irish swagger, Scottish pride, and whiskey. This explosive Celtic rock band from central PA will steal your heart, your spirit, and your pint when you’re not looking.
The brainchild of two members of a Harrisburg Pipe & Drum band, this project was originally created with the sole intent of getting them free beer at St. Patrick’s Day shows in the central PA area (and might I add- mission accomplished). After incorporating the help of fellow members from the pipe band and other notable musicians from the area, they soon realized they were in for one hell of a ride. Since 2009 they have continued to pound through blistering, high-energy live sets that keep people singing along, stomping their feet, lifting their pints and shouting for more. With several hundred shows at pubs and festivals from New Jersey to California, critically acclaimed releases under their belts, national and international airplay, and an ever-expanding and extremely loyal fanbase, it’s no wonder the world is starting to stand up and take notice.
Part Punk…Part Billy…. since 2007!
Their style of original music reflected songs about local life and growing up in Pennsylvania or Pennsyltucky, as the case may be. In late 2009, they added a fifth member to play banjo and complete their rockabilly sound. In early 2010, they expanded their punk style by adding bagpipes and a tin whistle to create a Celtic punk sound that is like no other. In 2013, The Punkabillys transformed from electric distortion to an acoustic grass-a-billy style of music by bringing back the banjo and adding an acoustic guitar. This brought a unique mix of bluegrass and Celtic Irish folk-grass. The current line-up of instruments include 2 acoustic guitars, bass, banjo, mandolin and washboard. Expect a lot of songs about pirates, moonshine, jail and bad decisions!
