Who is Richie, and how often does he perform with you?
Richie is our nephew, who has played guitar for us since 2002, and is now retired from full time service and only plays occasionally with us. He now is general manager for the family business, which is The Hooley House. The Reece family owns four Hooley House pubs, and Richie stays very busy with that, but he is able to make select performances with us happen, and when he does, those performances are very special to us. This year, he will be performing with the band at Cleveland Irish Cultural Festival and Dublin Irish Festival. And you may see him at an occasional BC Hooley performance.
