American Celtic punk band Dropkick Murphys (Twitter | Facebook) played to a sold-out crowd at the House of Blues in Orlando on Saturday March 2, 2013.

The band is composed of lead singer Al Barr, bassist Ken Casey, drummer Matt Kelly, guitarist James Lynch, mandolin–guitar player Tim Brennan and bagpiper Scruffy Wallace.

The band performed songs from their 2013 album Signed and Sealed in Blood including "Rose Tattoo”, “The Boys Are Back”, “Burn” and fan favorites from previous albums such as “Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ya”, “Going Out in Stye”, “I’m Shipping Up To Boston”, “The Gauntlet” and “Worker’s Song”.

The band displayed good stage presence and energy while entertaining the lively and loud crowd. Frontman Al Barr knows how to put on a fun show with good vocals and audience interaction. The band’s music is upbeat and engaging and kept the audience moving and singing along throughout the show.
