​The Guinness will be flowing for the hottest St. Patricks Day Celebration in town, as the Pat Chessell Band fires up Blue Frog Studios for a foot-stomping, hand-clapping IRISH SHOW.

Pat Chessell has made a name for himself as one of the most exciting live acts on the Vancouver music scene. His passionate, smoky vocals are complemented by Celtic fuelled sounds that stretch into influences of roots, folk, and alt-country. The Vancouver based folksinger began his career at a young age, performing as a guest with Danny Burns of the legendary Irish group, The Wolfhounds.

Chessell gained popularity being a featured act at the Irish Pavilion during the 2010 Olympics; he has since performed in such festivals as West Vancouver's Harmony Arts, Celtic Fest Vancouver, Canadian Rockies Kitchen Party, and Surrey Fusion Festival, to name just a few. He has been the opening act for the likes of Jim Byrnes, Derek Warfield and the Young Wolfe Tones, and The Town Pants, among others.
From festivals to corporate shows, Pat Chessell's shows have proven to be a hit with all ages. He has gained himself a loyal, growing fan base due to his stage presence, talent and high energy. Chessell's backup band consists of the fast, fiery fiddle playing of Andrea Taylor (ex­Clumsy Lovers), the bouzouki playing of Nathan Powell and the tight rhythm section of Rick Chapman and Tim Renaud, on drums and bass respectively.

Tom Harrison of the Vancouver Province described Chessell’s music as having “fresh energy and enthusiasm.”
