The Jason Pollack/Valerie Rose Band brings the dynamic music and song of Ireland, Scotland and other Celtic lands to life. Valerie Rose and long-time Bay Area collaborator Jason Pollack perform the irresistible Celtic dance tunes (jigs, reels, hornpipes, waltzes), and the alternately beautiful and bawdy songs of the Celtic tradition. It’s high-energy, fun, powerful acoustic music for venues great and small!
The lineup of the band can be shifted to match the needs of your San Francisco area event and your vision of what the music should be; for instance, having a Celtic harp instead of guitar can be great for weddings.
The band can tailor the music to suit your event, from having lots of raucous pub songs, to playing more meditative, evocative instrumental tunes; from fast, toe-tapping traditional Celtic dance tunes, to a more quiet background style music; from mostly songs and some tunes, to exclusively all tunes and no songs. Will add requested songs and tunes if asked.
Here’s a quote from a recent client: “Thank you so much for performing at our event on Saturday night. Everybody loved you and many people told me you were the best band we have ever booked. We all enjoyed it and I hope that you did as well. You are very talented, engaging and interactive artists. It was a blast.”
The band is available for bookings all around the San Francisco Bay Area.
