Our music is inspired and funded by you!

We are celebrating almost 10 years together as a band. The party is on Kickstarter and you can join us by lending your support.
There is plenty of swag to reward you for your friendship

"The Apostle's Mead" is funded, thanks to you


How it all began:
Paddygrass was born on Milwaukee's east side in Paddy's Pub. Home is where we sound our best so we love to record there. On November 8th we recorded a Gospel CD live in Paddy's. It's called "The Apostle's Mead". Anyone who came along that night joined the drunk Gospel choir. Imagine Southern Gospel sung loud with a drunken Irish lilt. We financed this CD with the help of our friends and family on kickstarter.

On November 8th 2014 we went to Paddy's Pub on Milwaukee's East Side and recorded a live performance of "Gospel Drinking Songs". Anyone who attended became part of the drunk Gospel choir. This is our Gospel, sung loud and rowdy with many a belly laugh. Take a little piece of God home to crash on your couch!

This is our best work yet, named after one of our favorite pours. 8 ounces of rigorously tested Irish drinking songs and 8 eight ounces of heart warming originals make one pint of kick arse music. Many thanks to our family and friends for funding this CD on Kickstarter.

Dear Kickstarter Backers,

First of all. Thank you so much for supporting our music. You have made it possible for me to record our best work and bring it out into the world. This means so much, I can't even begin to go there.

But most of all I can't wait for you to hear our music. For a limited time you can listen to the whole album free here and on the sitewide music player.

Once again thanks for your generosity.

Derek and Paddygrass
