The Dublin major group, Flogging Molly have been gigging on the road since the 1990's led by Dave King who originally was the lead singer for heavy metal band Fastway featuring guitarist "Fast" Eddie Clarke of Motörhead and bassist Pete Way of UFO in the early to mid '80s. Later the singer formed hard rock band Katmandu (1991), featuring Mandy Meyer of Krokus on guitars. Afterwards, Dave King retained a record deal with Epic records…
With a transformation from Rock towards more love for Irish Instruments, he began to bring in the traditional sounds and in 1993 he met guitarist Ted Hutt, bassist Jeff Peters, and violin player Bridget Regan and put together a rock band with a Celtic feel.
Further down the line, Dave King began to move on and form Flogging Molly – together they have now released an independent (26f Records) live album titled Alive Behind the Green Door, as well as six studio albums: Swagger, Drunken Lullabies, Within a Mile of Home, Float, Speed of Darkness, and Life Is Good; and an acoustic/live DVD/cd combo Whiskey on a Sunday, which has gone platinum!!
