"His name alone sets off the Celtic atmosphere in this young mans' singing and song writing strategy." - Margaret Bernabei-The Express- From an early age it was clear that Padraig Allen was destined to become one of the finest singer/songwriters out of Ireland. Catch one of his shows and you will witness the incredible energy that Padraig and The Whole Shabang turn out. Padraig has truly become one with the music industry, playing shows in both America and Europe for close to sixteen years, although he will tell you he still feels as though he has just begun playing music. At 33 years old and after spending eight incredible years as the singer and bass guitarist for the band, The Whole Shabang, the band invited Padraig to step out and add his own charisma and individuality to the Celtic rock music that they produce. As a result Padraig Allen and The Whole Shabang have what has been often called a "super band sound." This "sound" has it's very own distinctive mix between old Irish Celtic folklore and the rock pop Celtic music of today, while keeping the traditional sound of The Whole Shabang! An experienced and talented artist filled with one Dynamic Driven Show...................' - Margaret Bernabei.
