The Blaggards: DoTM

The Blaggards are a Celtic rock band from, get this, Houston Texas (not the normal breeding ground for Celtic rock I would think).

To me, they sound more like a cross between Celtic rock and heavy metal. Personally, I don't really take them all that seriously but they are amusing to say the least. Check them out some time just for the fun of it.

Here are some Blaggards websites:
