This band of misfits have been bringing their brand of floor-stomping Celtic punk rock to clubs all over California and beyond for the past 4 years. While their sound is rooted in traditional Irish folk, the 7 members of The Mighty Regis inject a variety of influences into their music. Most often likened to The Pogues, who lead singer Franky refers to as “The Old Guard”, TMR also draws inspiration from such bands as The Clash, NOFX, Johnny Cash, The Clash, Bad Religion, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Misfits and The Police. Its members having made ends meet in Hollywood via all manner of artistic endeavors, the entertainment value of their live show pairs perfectly with their tight musicianship. They have a rare ability to dissolve any demographic or musical genre lines and make instant fans of any crowd no matter the venue.
This video is pretty cool….and a nice plug from Regis and Kelly. So, bands out there take note, if you want your band name mentioned on daytime TV you’ll have to change it to something like Dropkick Oprah or Flogging Geraldo.
