O’Malley’s band booked for a ‘rollicking evening’

In what has been billed as a chance to forget about his day job, Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) is scheduled to perform again with his Celtic rock band later this month.

O’Malley’s March is booked on the night of May 28 at the Rams Head, a venue in Annapolis just around the corner from the State House.

The gig is part of what is shaping up as a relatively busy stretch for the governor’s semi-retired band, which had its heyday when O’Malley was a councilman and mayor of Baltimore.

O’Malley’s March is also scheduled to play June 17 with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra as part of Maryland’s War of 1812 bicentennial commemoration. In March, the band played at a White House reception for the Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny.

In a promotional blurb released Tuesday, the Rams Head promises a “rollicking evening of traditional and original tunes, seasonal classics and general merriment.”

“Martin and the boys,” it says, “are coming to the Rams Head ready to forget about their day jobs with a show that’ll be Irish down to the last drop!”
