Founded on St. Patrick’s Day 1999, with their name taken from a band member’s grandfather, The Kelihans, offer a distilled product of the Kansas City, Missouri music scene. The band members include, Jack Boyd-Guitar and Accordion; John Cutler- Guitar and Mandolin; Bill Guilfoyle- Drums; and Brian Lynn- Bass. All 4 of them sing vocals.

Veterans over the years of numerous weekly happy hour slots and music festivals, not to mention one of the house bands at O’Malley’s in Weston, Mo, the band plays Irish traditional, sea chanteys and their own original songs. With working class vocal harmonies, the music, whether poetic or sometimes raucous punk energy, is always heartfelt. What began for fun around a midtown KC bar table over 20 years ago to celebrate our heritage, continues today in the same spirit.
