Deering Banjo Artists
Jeff DaRosa, Tenor banjo player and high energy multi-instrumentalists of the Irish Folk Rock band, Dropkick Murphys formed in 1996 in Boston, MA. The band, now celebrating their 20 year anniversary, was originally just a bunch of friends looking to play music for fun. They started playing in the basement of a friend’s barbershop with the goal to blend the musical influences they had grown up with (Punk Rock, Irish Folk, Rock, and Hardcore) into one loud, raucous, chaotic, and often out of tune mix that they could call our own. The bands’ main goal is to play music that creates an all for one, one for all environment where everyone is encouraged to participate, sing along, and hopefully have a good time.
