Description

The members of Blaggards, a band that's been together for over 15 years, share their experiences while taking questions from listeners.
"The official podcast of all things Blaggards. Found on all major pod platforms and delivered weekly, it’s a behind-the-music view of the band, with tidbits for new fans (it’s just Blaggards, not The Blaggards, newbs) and cool stuff for longtime followers (Episode 5 discusses how the band’s music has been used in films like How to Be Single and TV shows like The Good Wife). Its engaging hosts are smart and funny. An interesting aside is the podcast also offers occasional glimpses back at Houston’s music community." — Jesse Sendejas, Houston Press

(https://blaggards.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0950-e1562664898904-1030x554.jpg)Patrick, Chad, and Mike sing the praises of O'Malley's Pub, an amazing music venue, pub and brewery in Weston, MO, where we'll be playing this weekend (July 12 & 13, 2019), as well as in October for Weston Irish Fest. Then we spend some time musing at the many odd fake Irish accents we frequently encounter in our line of work, and also talk about how much fun we've been having with our Facebook live streams.Show notesWeston Brewing Company & O'Malley's Pub — Weston, MO (https://westonirish.com)Blaggards Live Stream Archive on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pg/blaggards/videos/)Policing For Our Community (https://www.facebook.com/officer.gadrim/) — Logan, OHLone Star Pirate Festival — July 20 at Warehouse Live, Houston, TX (https://www.warehouselive.com/event/1843220-lone-star-pirate-festival-houston/)Join us in IRELAND this FallIreland 2019 - Are you in?

Patrick, Mike and Chad tell the story of our dear friend Jeff Quinn—the subject of our song "The Man From Omaha"—who passed away from ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) in February 2015. Jeff’s spirit was so strong that it’s still hard to believe he’s gone. In the short time we knew him, every second of his life was a celebration, and we were honored to be a part of it. He loved to laugh and was always smiling. His friendship also gave us a whole new extended family and second home in Omaha, Nebraska, something we know will always endure. (This episode is put together from two different recording sessions: one from several months ago with just Patrick and Chad, and another with Mike recorded yesterday afternoon.)Please consider donating to ALS Association (http://www.alsa.org).

Patrick and Chad talk about their interests outside of music, how they "wind down" between shows, how the band has held together for so long, favorite foods, and the joys of Houston humidity. Also plenty of odd diversions, including a story about Chad's unlikely-but-true connection to the '90s movie "Reality Bites".

What would Paddy and Chad be doing now if Blaggards had never happened? A very good question with a very long answer. The discussion takes us down the winding road of Houston history and the dramatic changes the music industry has seen in the digital era.Show notes Trains finally roll in Houston rail system (http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/Southwest/01/01/life.train.reut/) — CNN, 2004 Diedrich Coffee departure has patrons brewing a revolt (https://www.chron.com/neighborhood/bellaire/news/article/Diedrich-Coffee-departure-has-patrons-brewing-a-9634067.php) — Houston Chronicle, 2006 Hibernia Irish Tavern (http://hiberniairishtavern.com) - Little Rock, AR Frank Zappa explains the decline of the music industry (https://youtu.be/KZazEM8cgt0) Prison Love Songs, Blaggards reunion show with Turi Hoiseth (https://youtu.be/8G9ZuVFtZ7U) — The Continental Club Houston (2010) Border Reiver (https://youtu.be/dzqNSAbE7Fo) - Mark KnopflerJoin us in IRELAND this FallIreland 2019 - Are you in?
