A sonic boom of good time traditional Irish party music . . . ”

— Irish Music Magazine (Dublin Irish Festival Edition)

Wild Rumpus is a GrooveTrad Band that plays Feel Fantastic Music with a Traditional Irish Heartbeat and a Global Drumbeat. From blistering tunes to soaring songs, Wild Rumpus is a high-energy mix of trad tunes and songs and modern compositions, from Planxty to the Pogues. Irish Music Magazine described our sound as "A sonic boom of good time traditional Irish party music."

We love to play and celebrate each and every one of you who loves to share community through music. A night with The Rumpus is a night that will take you on a ride from delicate Irish airs to the shattering sound of pulse-pounding stadium shaking anthems. We do it for one reason - We’re glad you’re here!
