Sligo Rags, Safety Orange & Two of Us This Friday in Temecula
Sligo Rags is an energized four-piece Irish band that defies genre definitions despite their obvious Celtic overtones. Led by vocalists David Burns and Michael Kelly, backed by bass player Gordon Rustvold, and enhanced by the percussion stylings of Andy Reilly, Sligo Rags captivates audiences with their original and traditional Irish and folk tunes that take on a suspicious rock/bluegrass edge.
Safety Orange is a Southern California Beach Rock Reggae band that often plays House of Blues, Molly Malone’s and Longboard Grill in San Diego. The Band was started as a fun after Surf activity. Avid surfers themselves, the sound is reggae rock beach lifestyle oriented mixing high-energy guitar riffs with down tempo reggae rhythms.
Other bands playing in Old Town Friday include The Two of Us Plus 1 at the Old Town Plaza and Older than Dirt at the Smoke Shop. All concerts are free.
