Too-Rye-Ay - A St. Patrick's Day Tribute to Dexys Midnight Runners feat. Ted Leo
Get ready for a Celtic soul celebration this St. Patrick's Day as Too-Rye-Ay performs the music of Dexys Midnight Runners. Best known in America for "Come on Eileen" -- #18 in VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 1980s -- Dexys was revered in the U.K. for their punk-infused-soul music, distinctive fashion sense, and leader Kevin Rowland's unique lyrical perspective.

Too-Rye-Ay will perform two sets, featuring smash hits and deep cuts from Dexys' late '70s/early '80s albums and singles. The band features members of Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, Gramercy Arms, Elk City, and Nova Social:

Adrienne Berry - tenor saxophone

Anthony Cekay - alto saxophone

Claudia Chopek - violin

Therese Cox - accordion

Dave Derby - bass

Richard Alwyn Fisher - guitar

Tom Gavin - banjo/guitars

Ray Ketchem - drums

Sam Kulik - trombone

Ted Leo - vocals

David Nagler - keyboards

Ted Leo is one of the finest and most versatile singer/songwriters of our generation. Rooted in hardcore, then blistering power-pop with bands like Chisel and The Pharmacists, he has sung out our turbulent lives like we were smarter than we were, then provided equal parts sweetness and solace with Aimee Mann as The Both before releasing his most recent evolution: the long-awaited and critically acclaimed solo album The Hanged Man.
