The Jason Pollack Irish/Celtic Band in the San Francisco Bay Area brings the dynamic, inspiring music and song of Ireland, Scotland and other Celtic lands to life. The band features the great Irish traditional music combination of instruments: Irish flute, fiddle, guitar, and bodhran (the Irish frame drum). We play the irresistible Celtic dance tunes (jigs, reels, hornpipes, waltzes), and sing the beautiful and classic songs of the Irish/Scottish tradition. High energy, fun, powerful acoustic music for venues great and small!
The band lineup and music can be modified to suit any occasion: a wedding ceremony may work better with just Irish flute and Celtic Harp, for instance. Or a trio of Irish flute, fiddle and guitar may be best for a private party or a more intimate setting. Other instruments may be added to Irish flute, fiddle, guitar and bodhran such as accordion or concertina to add more punch and presence to a larger corporate function. A more “pure drop” combo can feature just Irish flute and fiddle.
For the past 6 years, Jason and the band have been thrilling audiences and clients at festivals and private parties. Former/Current clients include: Palo Alto Art & Wine Festival, KVMR Celtic Festival, Dublin Irish Festival, Caffe Trieste, Campbell Brewing Co., Baeltane Brewery, Kiwanis Club, Craigslist, many Country Clubs.
Here’s a quote from a recent client whose event we played at on March 5th, 2016: “Thank you so much for performing at our event on Saturday night. Everybody loved you and many people told me you were the best band we have ever booked. We all enjoyed it and I hope that you did as well. You are very talented, engaging and interactive artists. It was a blast.”
Another client from a private party on August 20th, 2016 wrote: “Jason and the band were everything I could have asked for for our event. I grew up listening to Irish music and the Jason Pollack Band delivered a great performance. Jason and all of the band members were very friendly and interacted well with our guests. We would definitely recommend them and will use them again. Thanks again to the Jason Pollack band for providing awesome entertainment for our event!!!”
