The Irish Aires All


The winners of our first KCIF Battle of the Bands is a do-not-miss performance of all your favorites! Hailing from St. Louis, this group has won the hearts of their home pub and all the BOTB attendees!

The Irish Aires have been playing Irish folk for some 30 years - they aren’t proud - and have managed to maintain a loyal fan base for whom they recorded 2 CD’s, aptly titled “You Asked For It” and “Past the Point of Rescue”.  Veteran members Bill Hale, Michael McDonagh, Gerry Nolan, and Stephen Stack recently welcomed newcomer Erich Petzall on fiddle and guitar, who lends some youth and class to the old crew (well, youth anyway).
